Hey Everyone,

Does anyone know how to edit the robots.txt file?

Shopify is preventing Ahrefs to crawl blogs on my website

If anyone can help it would be awesome!

Just a quick update about the robot.txt file that was referenced in this post. As of today, June 21st, 2021, we have launched the ability to edit the robot.txt file to give merchants more control over the information that is crawled by search engines. You can learn more about how to edit your robot.txt file through our community post here

I have marked this response as the solution as it provides the most up-to-date answer to the original question. If you have any questions about the new feature, please do not hesitate to create a new post under our "Techincal QA" board.
