I use iThemes Security and
on most of my sites.
I found that iTSec used to ban search engine bots (Google, Bing), because they are trying to find files which don’t exist.
This affects my site’s SEO and organic traffic very much!
Is there a best practice, an iTSec / Yoast documentation about how to avoid banning these bots?
I think both iTSec and Yoast SEO is a respected and widely used plugin in their operational area, so I think it is both side’s interest to find a solution.
ITSec might use such a whitelist of search engine bot IPs like it uses
Every cloaker solution has its search engine bot database…
So pls. recommend a better solution than adding those bot IPs to iTSec whitelist, one by one, manually, after they were banned by iTSec…
