Bot blockers are tools that monitor your website traffic and look for patterns indicating a robot is harvesting your site’s content. Malicious bots crawl your site and spam your store and look for security weaknesses so they can hack your store. Many malicious bots crawling your store can cause store response time to reduce which impacts search engine ranking and conversions on your store. When a bot blocker detects a robot, the bot blocker usually drops the request, so the robot thinks that the server is not there and will discontinue making data requests.



Magewares Bot Blocker frees up server resources and reduces the spam sent to your store. It helps stop spam bots that increase the server load by continuously crawling your store.


How does Magewares Bot Blocker work?

It adds spam filters in form of hidden forms on your store which bad bots will submit to add spam messages and thus be identified. Good bots will not submit to forms on your site.

A hidden link with a nofollow attribute is also added to identify Magento spam bots. Plus existing forms are rewritten to trick bad bots while not affecting users. 


Magewares Bot Blocker gives you the flexibility and the ability to:

  • Best solution to stop spam bots
  • Easy to use
  • Identifies automated malicious bots
  • Blocks these bots and ensures your store runs better and remain active
  • Prevents your store from getting hacked
  • Increases store speed
  • Ensures a real person is not blocked
  • Block bots that access certain request paths
