• Great Plugin, at one point I was getting 12,000 BAD bots a day and they were crawling directories that they were not supposed to. After install, I am only getting about 40 bots a day and they are all legitimate.
    Only negative I would say is that it requires a lot of memory.

    Thank you for great plugin.

  • What amount of memory did it require on your site? I set mine at 128 and it wanted more.

    It is using 75MB. They suggest giving it 128MB, but I gave it 100MB since I need memory for other programs on the same server. It seems to work fine with 100MB.
    And high memory usage is not all because of this plugin, but this plugin made usage much higher.
    Here is explanation from the author:

    Basically, the more content and features you add to your site, the bigger your memory limit has to be. if you’re only running a small site with basic functions without a Page Builder and Theme Options (for example the native Twenty Sixteen). However, once you use a Premium WordPress theme and you start encountering unexpected issues, it may be time to adjust your memory limit to meet the standards for a modern WordPress installation.

    Hi,

    The memory requested depends on:
    1) The theme in use. More images, more complex is the theme, request more memory.
    2) The number of plugins.
    3) The number of visits.
    4) Other things.

    Bots usually open many pages in a few seconds. Then, this can spend a lot of memory.

    We created this free plugin to help people with the memory issue:
