Robots.txt file is used for whole website, whereas meta robots tag use for a page on which page you have used.

Robots. txt files are best for disallowing a whole section of a site, such as a category whereas a meta tag is more efficient at disallowing single files and pages. You could choose to use both a meta robots tag and a robots.

Using a meta robots tag also ensures that your link equity is not being lost, with the use of the 'follow' command. Robots.txt files are best for disallowing a whole section of a site, such as a category whereas a meta tag is more efficient at disallowing single files and pages.

Robots.txt is better compared to meta robots tag. Robots.txt 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.
