    Anyway knows the easiest way to block sites (especially wordpress sites), from being track by Ahrefs and Majesticseo? Wanna hide some sites from being tracked.

    Thanks!

    Does it block Google spiders as well? I don't want my rankings to be affected.

    Just want to hide all by backlinks being tracked by competitors using Ahrefs,Majesticseo and Opensite Explorer etc.

    Cheers!

    Thanks Mate! Will give it a try.. If only there is a wordpress plugin that does all these by default.. Lazy at times to logged in and edit the .htaccess file :p

    You can block bots according to their identifiers, and the above code is a good start :)

    Thanks Tony!

    Any idea will Ahrefs and Majestic still show all the previous backlinks I've built even after I installed these codes?

    Where's your previous thread regarding the 301 redirection anyway? Can't seem to find it.. Deleted?

    I should imagine they will continue to show, but a crawl error will also show in the last crawl results column.

    I think my 301 thread is alive? I haven't checked it... I'll find it and PM you :)

    With this code, you will block Ahrefs and Majestic to access your website.
    However, it's won't hide your backlinks to your competitors, since your backlinks are part of others websites (which do not have the same robots.txt)
