Projects / bot-trap


bot-trap allows your Web site to automatically ban bad Web robots (a.k.a. Web spiders) that ignore the robots.txt file. This does not include Googlebot and other well-behaved robots. The software requirements are Apache and PHP, but the principles would work with any Web server setup. The main advantage over other implementations of this concept is that bot-trap has a manual "unban" feature so that humans can unban, but robots can't.
