I refer to this webpage: https://developers.google.com/search/docs/advanced/robots/robots_txt
Could someone elaborate on the difference between these two:
allow: /page disallow: /*.htm
Applicable rule: disallow: /*.htm, because it matches more characters in the URL, so it’s more specific.
allow: /page disallow: /*.ph
Applicable rule: allow: /page, because in case of matching rules, Google uses the least restrictive rule.
They look rather similar but one disallows while the other allows.
