Occasionally 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 instance, and generate fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things can greatly undermine your hard work, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server where your site is hosted, that can result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your website are legitimate.
