Website Traffic decrease

We have just recently restored our site from an old backup, say 2 months old backup, we suffered plugin conflict and bot attacks but after restoration our traffic has rather not improved.

i don’t know if we have accidentally blocked a traffic bot or something

You can check your security events to see if you have traffic you are expecting getting blocked.

I see quite a number of things we block which seem to be bots, how are we sure we did not block good bots responsible for traffic?

Hi @bdaydomains,

It seems that your goal is to block bad bots. You may use Super Bot Fight Mode to do that. You will find this feature under the Security tab > Bots. You may want to consider Definitely automated to Block (or Managed Challenge).

how are we sure we did not block good bots responsible for traffic?

By setting Verified bots to allow you should not be blocking “good bots”.

I hope this helps.
