Every now and then 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 example, and produce fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This type of things can considerably undermine your work, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, which may result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your site are authentic.
