every day there are 3 or 4 ip addresses that will come to one of my sites. I have a feeling this is a competitor or an seo company who is working hard on their seo and just checking rankings. I am scared because eventually they might outrank me. How can I discourage competitors so they give up and stop trying? I wasn't sure if I should include the previous paragraph in the question, it's kind of not relevant. For answering this question, you can ignore, or consider, the previous paragraph.
