Missed the release notes for All in One SEO Pack v2.7? Then you may not be aware that we’ve completely overhauled the Robots.txt module. Here’s what’s new!
Prior to All in One SEO Pack v2.7, the robots.txt file was output as a physical file on your web server. However, WordPress creates a dynamic virtual robots.txt file, which is always preferred over a physical file. The overhaul of the Robots.txt module meant that we could remove support for physical files entirely and instead use the dynamic virtual file that WordPress creates. This has two benefits:
- Rules that are added to the robots.txt file are stored in the database.
- The default rules created by WordPress are used by All in One SEO Pack.
In addition to switching from a physical file to a virtual file, we also overhauled the user interface. We kept the easy-to-use rule builder and added a table that displays your custom rules.
The new Robots.txt module now also supports WordPress Multisite Networks. There’s a new Robots.txt Editor in the Network Admin panel that enables Network Administrators to set global rules. These global rules are used by all sites in the network and cannot be overridden at site level.
The new Robots.txt module is a big improvement for both site administrators and network administrators of large multisite installations. It continues our commitment to deliver the best possible SEO tools to you so you can effectively manage your own SEO.
If you’d like to learn more, then we highly recommend you to check out our documentation on the new Robots.txt module and Network Admin Robots.txt Editor:

Is this new txt robot only suitable for All in One SEO Pack, can it be used for other seo plugins like yoast seo or platinum seo pack
It is literally a part of AIOSEOP, so I wouldn’t recommend using it at the same time as another SEO plugin. Also, you should be aware that “Platinum SEO Pack” is nothing more than a rip/fork of All in One SEO Pack from 8 or 9 years ago and hasn’t been updated in many many years. I’m a bit curious where you even discovered it?
Does the robot.txt module work only in All in One SEO Pack Pro or also in the free version?
It’s included in both the free and Pro version.
Can I use another robots.txt plugin while still using All in One SEO Pack?
Of course, but don’t forget to disable our Robots.txt module in the Feature Manager.
I’m working on SEO for my site currently and I’m thinking I may have to try out this All-In-One SEO plugin.
All in One SEO plugin always best for me. Because this plugin have multiple features for easily manage your SEO work in one place.
