    I get this error in my cpanel log

    [Sun Jun 11 09:58:40 2006] [error] [client] File does not exist: /home/lucky123/public_html/404.shtml
    [Sun Jun 11 09:58:40 2006] [error] [client] File does not exist: /home/lucky123/public_html/robots.txt

    I looked via FTP for the robots.txt file and do not see it.
    What is this file and is it o.k without it?
    The only thing I did yesterday was to load the hack for the countdown clocks. Site works fine.

    Those errors have nothing to do wih vB. You can create those files if you want.

      O.k I thought maybe I screwed up my directories.
      I have done some reading about bots and get different opinions.

      some say they are good, others say they are bad to use for SEO's to crawl your site.

      what do you all think??? Are you using them?
