From time to time you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. Such things may greatly undermine your projects, because nobody likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your website are legitimate.
