Magento Bot Blocker is the best solution to stop spam bots and scraper bots on your store. Automated bots constantly crawl the web looking for contact forms to submit spam to, review forms to submit spam to, and looking for information to scrape for data mining purposes. These bots increase server load, waste your time with spam messages, and reduce your stores response rate due to increased load. Magento Bot Blocker will identify and block these bots so your store can run better and remain active.
Consequences of Bots Crawling Your Store
Malicious bots that crawl your site are looking to spam your store or looking for security weaknesses so they can hack your store. You might have seen in your store search log strange looking queries that are done to gain access to your database. Eventually, many malicious bots crawling your store can even cause store response time to reduce which can impact search engine ranking and conversions on your store.
Bot Blocker Solution to Bots
Magento Bot Blocker adds hidden forms on your store which bad bots will submit to and be identified. Good bots will not submit to forms on your site. A hidden link with a nofollow attribute can also be added to identify bad bots. In addition, existing forms will be rewritten to trick bad bots while not affecting users. Using these techniques Bot Blocker can identify the bad bots and block them from your store!
Note: This list is not an complete list of features. Please try the demo to see this extension in action.
- Prevent Your Store From Getting Hacked
Many bots submit form data in order to find weaknesses in your store so they can hack the store. By blocking these bots the probability of being hacked is reduced.
- Increase Store Speed
If your store has many bad bots using server resources, then blocking these bots will increase store speed.
- Block Bots in an Automated Way
Our solution is automated and does not require constant maintenance or watching unless you choose to do it.
- Find Blocks With Honey Pot Hidden Form
Adding a hidden form on the site is used to identify malicious bots. Good bots / people will not submit to the form.
- Protect Your Store from Form Spam New!
Forms can be optionally rewritten in a way that bots will have difficulty submitting them, but normal people will have no problem submitting the form. This can greatly reduce form spam.
- Ban Blocks for Only a Specific Amount of Time
The web is a dynamic place. An IP might belong to a malicious bot today and 1 year from now it no longer does. As a result, you can choose to make any blocking expire after a certain amount of days.
- Block Bots that Access Certain Request Paths
Some bots send automated request such as to "wp-login.php" in search for platforms they can exploit. When an IP address goes to such a page, then it can be blocked.
- Ensure a Real Person is Never Blocked
Any blocked address will receive a CAPTCHA form where they can verify they are not a bad bot by filling out the form. As a result, your store is guaranteed to never block a real person accidently.
- Approve / Unapprove Bots Before They Are Blocked
You can choose whether bots must be manually approved before blocking or whether they will be automatically blocked.
- Whitelist Bots
If for some reason you want to ensure a bad bot has access to your site you can easily whitelist it.
