  • Perhaps you may not be aware, but the last visit to your site (highlighted in yellow) is from GoogleBot (Google's crawling bot, also referred to as a spider). I can't tell you this is the source of your problem, but if your intent is to block Google, it's best to use disallow instructions on your robots.txt file, or a noindex,nofollow on each page that you do not want indexed. – Josh Salganik Oct 23 '17 at 9:31
  • Wordpress has very effective ways of preventing spam, between using plugins or a free cdn such as cloudflare - which also help prevent bogging down resources and bandwidth within your hosting instance. – Josh Salganik Oct 23 '17 at 9:33
  • Thank you for comment. while Clouflare plugin deal with caching related issue. I am using wp-super-cache. The CPU resources getting high while the traffic coming to site. Here i need to know the link showing as Bot traffic is this bad or good? – Mourin Oct 23 '17 at 9:51
  • Cloudflare enhances the following: 1. Performance (save resources & improve speed), 2. Reduced Bandwidth, 3. Spam protection (filter out bad traffic and protect yourself from automated bots & spammers), 4. Faster DNS Changes/Propagation, 5. Blocks Dos & DDos Attacks (which blocks automated requests meant to overload your server and bring it down). Therefore, since Cloudflare passess traffic that would normally arrive at your site through a filter process & only validated traffic will be routed to your host. Cloudflare is different than your typical CDN. – Josh Salganik Oct 23 '17 at 11:47
  • Thank you. Had no idea how better it can work. i find that here two ways to install. 1. Cloudflare Wordpress Plugin 2. activate Cloudflare cpanel plugin but the wordpress cloudflare plugin review not that much good. Which one you recommend to do... – Mourin Oct 23 '17 at 12:31
