Blocking Datacenters

Hey All,

Making my own firewall rules regarding pesky bots using their asn numbers.

If I block or challenge them if I run google ad sense and legit ads hosted using one of these data centers, will the visitor receive the advertisement? Or will it block?

Thanks

When you block an ASN, no requests coming from IPs belonging that ASN will be allowed. However, you can use and not cf.client.bot to exclude “Known Good Bots” from this rule. Just make sure the services you use are on Cloudflare’s list of Known Good Bots - otherwise you may have to add an exception for that service’s IPs.
