Do you have unwanted visitors coming to your webpage from countries that you do not do business in and don’t have interest in having visitors from. Often times websites get huge amounts of traffic that comes from sources such as Russia and from other baltic states or even in some cases Nigeria with credit card fraud and nonsense. One of the ways that you can combat this issue is to simple block users from those countries from being able to login and utilize your website at all. There are a few different ways to accomplish this. One option is to block it on the server level where there are whitelisted countries IP addresses that you accept viewers from and there are others that are blocked.
Another way to block this unwanted traffic, is to install a plugin that removes their ability to view your website. We have had this issue ourselves and what we did was to install a plugin that lets us decide which of any of all of the countries in the world can see the content that we are producing.
One of the plugins that can be used for this is called iQ Block Country. Link included here.
This useful plugin limits your website content. You can either allow or disallow visitors from certain countries to certain parts of your content. For example you can have content that should be limited to the United States only or to Canada only.
The nice thing about these software is that they can restrict the content in a variety of ways depending on your security needs.
