Robots

Recommended Posts

Paul Meehan

I usually like to check who has visited my site recently.

Usually I see new users looking at my site and I make contact with them.

Sometimes I see a lot of Robot activity but today I am most annoyed.....

I have selected 1000 activities to view and have found today that every single one is generated by a robot - looking at my site to gain information.....

In the last 20 hours every view of my site (1000 views) is a robot - most annoying as I may have missed some genuine viewers....

All of these activities come from a different IP address but they all have the same suffix;

ip???.ip-54-36-148.eu

How do I get rid of this unwelcome attention??

 Thankyou if you can help me get rid of this pest....

You can also use .htaccess deny to ban some robots.

Have a look at hot jar as a way of tracking what people look at and enabling contact.

Thanks all,

I am relatively unfamiliar with computer coding so I am reluctant to  install "bot-traps'

I also do not wish to create an extra "step" for visitors to verify that they are not robots.....

I prefer that my site is easily available to average lookers who come across a search result....

I've just checked and have found that I have received 980 robot visits out of the last 1,000 site visits.

Usually the robots give up after a short while but this one has been going hard for 2 days now....

You've been informed of numerous ways to stop the bots.

Unless you do something as advised by anyone above, enjoy your bot visits.
