Did you know that if Google cannot crawl your robots.txt file, that it will stop crawling your whole site?This doesn’t mean you need to have a robots.txt file, you can simply not have one.
If Google is having trouble crawling your robots.txt file, it will stop crawling the rest of your site to prevent it from crawling pages that have been blocked by the robots.txt file. If this isn’t happening frequently, then it’s probably a one off issue you won’t need to worry about. If it’s happening frequently or if you’re worried, you should consider contacting your hosting or service provider to see if they encountered any issues on the date that you saw the crawl error.
