Bot Blackhole 1.0.2

   (1 review)

4 Screenshots

Bot Blackhole is a tool to stop those pesky naughty web bots sneaking into places where they have no business going.

BBH places a little trap within your website in the form of a link, and if the bot follows this link, it gets trapped with no where else to go.

BBH logs all bots who full into this trap for you to decide whether they get to stay or they get flushed in the form of a IP ban. This can be done via the settings.

Webmasters can also have emails sent to them each time a bot is blocked/Banned.

You can add IP addresses to your Whitelist to prevent them from being blocked. All IP addresses are blocked via Invision Admin Ban Settings.

Its great, but, it falsely flags search engine crawlers as 'bad bots'...

Response from the author:

If a bot follows a link which is specified as "do not follow", then it is considered a bad bot.

You have the ability to whitelist the IP address of the Bot you want to consider a 'Good Bot'.
