  • 3D said it was a crawler issue to eat my bandwidth

    Around the first of every month, I've had several carts filled up - like $22,000 - and left. They add 1 product in multiples and then in the comments, there is some BOGUS message. I spend time blocking IPs from China, Saudi Arabia, Washington, South Africa, etc etc.

    When I called 3D cart a few month ago, the guy said it was pure malice to eat the bandwidth and the only thing I could do was block the IP addresses.

    Question - does this happen to anyone else and do you know if there is any way to stop it, like a plug-in?

    Thanks,

    Amanda S.

      Yes, there are some robots out there that just love to eat up BW. Having a good robots.txt file helps. Do a search in this forum for some ideas.
