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 create fake visits and website traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things could greatly undermine your work, as nobody likes to visit a site with many fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server where your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your site are real.
