Stop Bad Bots Stealing Your Bandwidth

by WP Topcat

Share this article

Most hosting accounts who offer “unlimited bandwidth” don’t mean unlimited They go by a fair use policy which is really fair enough.

I use plugins on my websites that are free to use unless you go above a certain amount of visitors. Then you either have to pay to upgrade or your plugin will be disabled till the end of your current month.

I have had one host shut my site down suddenly without warning because I was getting too much traffic. But this was not good traffic. They were bots, bad bots. Russian bots, in particular, will gobble up your bandwidth before your site has even had a chance to get any legitimate visitors or traffic.

There are plugins you can buy to prevent this, In my opinion, they are difficult to configure and costly.

I have started to use my own Robots text on all of my websites which lets all the good bots in, such as Google, Yahoo etc, and keeps all the bad bots out.

You need to download this free plugin and install it and activate it on your WordPress site.  Virtual Robots Text

And then enter the text in this file I am giving you to download for free into it. It will preserve your bandwidth and save you money. (No opt-in required  to download) Download it now and also join our FB group for more free tools and tips.
