Occasionally you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot 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 suspicious sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things could considerably undermine your hard work, simply because nobody likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server on which your Internet site is hosted, which can result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
