Once in a while you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to site articles. This kind of things can greatly undermine your projects, simply because nobody likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server on which your site is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your website are authentic.
