Once in a while you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to shady websites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things may considerably undermine your hard work, since no one likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, so as to be certain that the visits to your site are real.
