Site Tweak: AI Bots Blocked Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

13 June 2024

This afternoon we read Dan Moren's Excluding Your Web Site From Apple's AI Crawler and thought we'd jump on that bandwagon. We never liked the idea of someone parroting our advice at a party as if it were their own.

But more importantly we prefer to reserve our bandwidth allocation of 150-GB for you. Not bots.

So we've blocked both Apple and ChatGPT using the simple syntax we've been using to block Yandex, Baidu, Youdao, Semrush and Ahrefs.

We've been blocking Google too, but using a different approach. So we've made a slight change to see if we can block Google's AI crawling but not its indexing.
