SEO Being affected

Hello,

Lately one of our sites has received an immense DDoS attack and we had to add CAPTCHA firewall rules to certain countries as well as rate-limiting (UAM was being solved by the attackers).
Since then, our google rankings have been dropping drastically and I’m afraid Google can’t see our site.
Any recommendation? When adding “known bot” we felt like some bots were bypassing the rules.

Regards.

Known bots are bots considered legitimate/ useful such as search engine crawlers. If you have blocked those from crawling your site that seems like it might impact SEO.

:wave: Hey,

We have these whitelisted from all firewall rules with no luck.

Regards.
