Hello friends,
What is the limit of a robot.txt file?

The robots.txt file must be a UTF-8 encoded plain text file and the lines must be separated by CR, CR/LF, or LF.

Google ignores invalid lines in robots.txt files, including the Unicode Byte Order Mark (BOM) at the beginning of the robots.txt file, and use only valid lines. For example, if the content downloaded is HTML instead of robots.txt rules, Google will try to parse the content and extract rules, and ignore everything else.

Similarly, if the character encoding of the robots.txt file isn't UTF-8, Google may ignore characters that are not part of the UTF-8 range, potentially rendering robots.txt rules invalid.

Google currently enforces a robots.txt file size limit of 500 kibibytes (KiB). Content which is after the maximum file size is ignored. You can reduce the size of the robots.txt file by consolidating directives that would result in an oversized robots.txt file. For example, place excluded material in a separate directory.

Hello friends,
What is the limit of a robot.txt file?

I am think that there is no limit but while searching on Google I found one article- in this John Mueller said "Google has a limit of only being able to process up to 500KB of your robots.txt file".

So the final answer is "Google has a limit of only being able to process up to 500KB of your robots.txt file"

There is a limit to what Google is able to process only up to 500KB of your robots.txt file.

It reads only the first 500kb present in the robots.txt file.

500 kibibyte limit on robots.txt files (KiB). Content that exceeds the file size limit is disregarded. You can shrink the robots in size.
