  • If baidu is coming from all over it’s not baidu, they’re spam bots – harvesters spoofing baidu.

    Baidu used to run on 119.63.192.0 – 119.63.199.255 – not sure if those IPs are still valid.

    1. Try this on top of htacess, before WP rewrite:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.yoursite.net/.*$ [NC]

    1. Block those IPs in htaccess:

    order allow,deny
    deny from 222.333.44.555 [replace with actual IPs]
