Every now and then you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things could considerably undermine your hard work, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server where your website is hosted, that could result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are real.
