I had a bot of some sort crawling my site like crazy for the last day or so. It says in Google Analytics that it's from San Jose in the US. The IP addresses that appeared in the access logs were 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199. I blocked each of those and then it stopped for a couple of hours. Now it's back and in the access logs, it says that the domain accessing the site is my own, i.e.
How can I stop this? I blocked the whole range of 38.99.82 by placing the following in a htaccess file.
# Block Site Crawling our website # Order Deny,Allow Deny from 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168-255
