Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Beware: InfoTigerBot

  • Resolved AeroStar


    Dear Community,

    Subject bot (fairly new) is crawling the web for information about websites. It will soon depend on ads, etc. to make money. Are you going to get a cut? Not likely.


    Consider blocking them or asking for your cut 🙂

    We will continue to stand against bots that provide no SEO nor financial benefit to our websites.

    Thanks for the alert. Aggressive spiders and bots can definitely be a pain, though which ones site owners block can boil down to a personal choice. The Yandex bot is a perfect example. Sometimes the traffic from it is over the top and I have blocked it before on my sites, but I also know that they are like the Eastern Europe equivalent to Google in some places. I see that InfoTiger says that they respect the robots.txt file but then I have seen other bots and spiders that say they do but don’t. One other thing you can do is add a block for InfoTigerBot on the Wordfence Firewall > Blocking page on your website. You’d want to use the Custom Pattern option. There are details here:
