    Hi all,

    first, i'm getting really tired of those bots who ruining my analytics. In my case it's most russian and english versions. I have found in the past an couple of lines to place in the httacces but lost it unfort. Can someone please write them again in this thread?

    The second question is regarding linkbuilding. A competitor of mine ranks well with 30k backlinks from a forum, so it was his signature. I thought it wasn't possible to rank with (mainly) forum posts? Or does it still have a little value?

    thanks in advance

    30K backlinks from forums,it is crystal clear that he ran BOT or GSA on Forums and getting backlinks from there only.
    And you have a problem with that.

    You can create filters in analytics according to the visiting bot nature to filter those visits that would be better.

    Now about the forum backlink,If you can get niche related ones then ofc you can rank,if it is not niche related then you may also rank but not for a long term though.

    if forum links are in the niche and its a good forum the links are ok. the bot mostly spam dead forums which have no value.

    If the forum is on topic and has decent authority I think the links would still be worth getting

    What is the reason behind that? So why is it better to create filters instead of blockimg them?

    Was just wondering because i thought it had no value bit appearently it did!

    well I don't know, let's say he's a great member on that forum and the posts are from a couple years where he post multiple posts a day. Don't know if that's the case but going to find out. Can it increase serps in that case? Forum is same niche

    You can block those bots based on IP ranges or useragents. You'll need to give us a bit more info. Feel free to PM me with those details and i'll write it up for you.

    Thanks for your answer. I made filters in Analytics (based on domain name referer) so will try it out if that will work.
    It's about links like these

    traffic2cash.xyz
    share-buttons.xyz
    site-55427467-1.snip.tw
    site61330306.snip.tw
    traffic-cash.xyz
    free-social-buttons.xyz
    с.новым.годом.рф
    topseoservices.co
    trafficgenius.xyz
    website-stealer.nufaq.com
    build-audience.for-your.website
    new-look.for-your.website
    smarter-content.for-your.website

    Guess we all know them unfort .. ;)

    Append this to your .htaccess file:

    Code:
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*traffic2cash.xyz.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*share-buttons.xyz.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*site-55427467-1.snip.tw.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*site61330306.snip.tw.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*traffic-cash.xyz.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*free-social-buttons.xyz.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*с.новым.годом.рф.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*topseoservices.co.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*trafficgenius.xyz.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*website-stealer.nufaq.com.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*build-audience.for-your.website.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*new-look.for-your.website.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*smarter-content.for-your.website.*$ [NC] 
    RewriteRule ^.*.* %{HTTP_REFERER} [R=301,L]
    
    It'll send bots/visitors back and forth in a loop. If they are set to follow redirects it might even crash them.

    Are these from a few or hundreds of different forums?
