Occasionally you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. Such things may considerably undermine your hard work, since no one likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server on which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
