Occasionally you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. This sort of things may significantly undermine your hard work, because no one likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, which could result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
