From time to time you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things can greatly undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit a website with many fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, that could result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your website are authentic.
