Problem with hits and bots

  • Hi,

    i have been using wordpress since a year ago and it works great, but a few weeks ago i noticed (in slimstat plugin) that the hit has been increased drastically but no the visits.

    Examining it i saw that a lot of those hits come from the same ip. For example, today it says:

    Period Hits Visits
    Today, 14 Feb 2008 2188 258

    And +1500 of those hits come from the same IP (is not the same ip everyday).

    Seeing the links that has been hits i see links like:

    */www.spam.donotwant.es where * is a valid url of my website.

    Can you give me any advice to solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance

    Best bet would be to get with your host as they may have a method to limit connections. Without knowing your software, we can’t point at anything specific and say ‘Do this to solve your problem.’

    May want to suggest to your host installing a firewall or reviewing their current settings if they have one already installed. Gotta admit that this is not a problem that my clients would be noticing as any ip address doing something like you describe would have been banned after the first 30 seconds or so.
