BAYAN LEPAS, Malaysia - Feb. 7, 2024 - PRLog -- Detecting and discriminating between good bots and bad bots is indeed crucial for maintaining the functionality and integrity of online platforms. IP2Location - the world leading provider of the IP geolocation technology provides an efficient tool to assist webmasters and site administrators in filtering the good bots and bad bots – Firewall List By Search Engine.

Whitelisting search engine crawlers in a firewall can be important for several reasons, depending on the specific needs and goals of a website or online platform. For example, allowing search engine crawlers to access and index website content ensures that the site's pages can be properly indexed and ranked in search engine results pages (SERPs). But bots aren't all good. Bad bots pose a significant threat to websites, online platforms, and internet users by engaging in a wide range of malicious activities designed to exploit vulnerabilities. Blacklisting involves identifying and blocking specific bots or user agents known to engage in malicious activities, such as data scraping, spamming, or launching cyber-attacks. This approach helps protect the website from potential security threats and abuse.

Today, IP2Location is glad to announce 4 latest bots, namely AppleBot, AhrefsBot, SemrushBot and Twitter bot were newly added into the list. Now, users can select the search engines that they want to whitelist and the output format easily using this handy tool. It will then generate a config file for the firewall to whitelist or blacklist the bots. The output formats supported are Apache .htaccess, iptables (CIDR), Netmask, Inverse Netmask, IIS web.config and Cisco ACL.
