Search Engine Optimization

Hi,

I want to secure wordpress login page with rate limit rules.

path: /wp-login.php

Rule to block client for 1 hour when sending more than 3 POST requests in 1 minute.

Will this stop search engine bots and affect Search Engine Optimization?

Thanks.

Hello there,

That won’t happen. Cloudflare Rate Limiting automatically identifies and mitigates excessive request rates for specific URLs (this is in your case) or entire domain. You are setting it for your a/c login only.
