Would you like to keep bad bots off your site?
Simply paste the lines below into your .htaccess file.
Bad bots and lazy people will steal anything they can.
They try to get emails, free content, layouts that they like, and all your hard work.
Stopping them is fairly straight forward and simple.
In the top directory of your site or subdomain, create a file called .htacces if it doesn’t exist already.
If you can access your .htaccess file simply add the following lines to it:
SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent "^EmailSiphon" bad_bot
SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent "^EmailWolf" bad_bot
SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent "^psycheclone" bad_bot
SetEnvIf Remote_Addr "208\.66\.195\.[0-28]+" bad_bot
SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent "^Java/1.5.0_04" bad_bot
SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent "^Java/1.5.0" bad_bot
allow from all
deny from bad_bot
Then anytime you see more activity you don’t want, simply add the agent or user-agent performing the activity follow the example above to the list.
