How To Properly Block Bad Bots WordPress

This is the overall best way to block pretty much all bad bots, especially for WooCommerce. If you all of a sudden getting a lot of spam comments another good thing is to start using WordPress’ built in blocker which is inside Settings.

Simply go to Settings > Discussion and scroll down a little and “Disallowed Comment Keys” start adding things like “cialis”, “drugs” whatever your spammy content has. Even block IP addresses. Any questions comment below.
