Once in a while you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to blog articles.

Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your website are authentic.
