    In Google Webmaster Tools, im usually reminded by Google that i do not have robots file. So i think this robots.txt is important to be there and personally i would not care about meta tags.

    Robots.txt is much better as it lists the webpages together in a single list. It is a text file that lists webpages which contain instructions for search engines robots. The file lists webpages that are allowed and disallowed from search engine crawling.

    In order to exclude individual pages from search engine indices, the noindex meta tag is actually superior to robots.txt. ... You want to use 'noindex,follow' in a robots meta tag, rather than robots.txt , because it will allow the link juice to pass through. It is better from a SEO perspective.

    Using robots.txt is better compared to using robots meta tag.Because by using robots.txt we are providing the instructions to robots for all the pages of web site.It consumes very less time compared to using robots tag which we have to mention separately for all the pages,which is very time consuming and quite confusing.So usage of robots.txt is better.

    Robots.txt is better as the instructions included in that file can be used for entire site and not only to single web page.
