GPT Bot Crawl Tester

CHECK if GPTBot can crawl your website.

In the digital age, maintaining control over your website's content is crucial for privacy and security. With the increasing use of AI models like GPTBot for training purposes, website owners are seeking ways to ensure their content isn't used without permission. In this article, we'll introduce you to our GPTBot Crawl Checker tool, helping you identify whether GPTBot has access to your site.

Understanding GPTBot and Web Crawling: GPTBot, employed by OpenAI for training AI models like GPT-4, is a web crawler that collects data from various websites. While web crawling is a common practice, not everyone wants their content utilized in AI training without explicit consent.

Disabling GPTBot Crawl Access: Concerned about GPTBot accessing your content? Here's a simple guide on how to disable its crawl using the Robots.txt file:

  1. Locate Your Robots.txt File: The Robots.txt file is typically found at the root of your website (e.g.www.yourwebsite.com/robots.txt).

  2. Edit the Robots.txt File: Add the following lines to block GPTBot's access to your entire site:

    User-agent: GPTBot
    Disallow: /
    
  3. Specific Access Control (Optional): Customize access by allowing or disallowing specific parts of your website. For example:

    User-agent: GPTBot
    Allow: /public-content/
    Disallow: /private-content/
    
  4. Save and Upload: Save the changes to your Robots.txt file and upload it to the root of your website.

By following these simple steps, you regain control over which parts of your website GPTBot can and cannot crawl.
