Every now and then you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things can significantly undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server where your Internet site is hosted, which may result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
