After malware attack on my website I'm seeing more than 20000 get requests every day which are pointing to non existent places on my server. Those addresses were valid during the attack and were displaying undesirable content in Chinees/Japanees language. Due to that my server provider is blocking my server as number of requests is exceeds my limit.
I've alreade performed the following steps to resolved that issue:
- Placed proper sitemap in google
- Blocked SemrushBot in robots.txt (User-agent: SemrushBot Disallow: /)
- Blocked IP from which that bot is pointing my server in .HTACCESS (Order Allow,Deny Deny from 188.8.131.52/24)
Could you help me to understand what should I do to reduce that unwanted traffic and fix indexing in Google Search Console?
