Every now and then you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things can drastically undermine your hard work, because no one likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which may result in the site not working properly.
