I have a Website where :
- We currently have a lot of bots trying to grab our content (it's a business directory) from China, Ukraine, etc...
- 5% of IP addresses are "unresolved", according to AWStats
So my idea is to limit the number of HTTP requests per IPs (excepted for well-known bots, for instance Google Bot) :
- That would solve my #1 problem (the bots)
- But that would also block all "unresolved IP" traffic
-> is it a good idea to block all those "unresolved" IPs? Am I going to block some legitimate traffic?
