Hi to everyone!
I am new to the community and i am thankful if somebody could help me to clarify the following doubts.
I decided to block an entire country excluding known bots with the following firewall rule: (ip.geoip.country eq “IT” and not cf.client.bot)
I would like to know,
- are you aware of any penalization given by search engines like google for blocking an entire country?
- are you aware of any speed impact of the rule, in other words does the rule increase the website loading time?
Thanks in advance.
