Every now and then you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things can drastically undermine your projects, simply because nobody likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server where your site is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, so as to make sure that the visits to your site are real.
