Once in a while you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and site traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. Such things can considerably undermine your hard work, since no one likes to visit an Internet site with many hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
