Block Visitors if they Search on these words

You can set number of items so after cross limit you can block based on this number. Here is two think , same IP and different IP You can also set ‘Header text for Search results’


If a visitor does a 404 and it is not recorded – is probably because the text has been blocked.
The ‘Websites’ column will show the website searched from – this is only relevant if multiple sites are been managed from one central site.
The IP – Security information is only available if you are using our EZY API plugin and you have a live subscription to one of our IP providers. There are limits on the number of Lookups, and if you go over the limits the IP Data will stop until renewed. If you are still getting a warning message in EZY API – you have probably entered an incorrect IP code.
Watch the Number of Requests – to see how often a search or 404 is registered carefully to either fix on site errors, or block ‘bad actors’.
Next click will only show when the visitor takes further action – so the probability is that you will not see any next clicks following a 404.
If you are seeing large numbers of requests on ‘suspect’ 404’ – you are strongly recommended to block these searches. Remember once a search has been blocked – it will no longer register on the 404 list.
We have options on what to show on the 404 Pages, this obviously depends on theme used, and may not work on all.
To view all the records that were displayed to the visitor – click on the ‘Records Displayed’ link and it should display all the records that were shown to the visitor.


If there is no IP data, Country, Region data available – you are not connected to EZY API and a IP data source.

If a recent search or 404 is not listed – you must have blocked that particular search.

If the search results don’t appear relevant – is probably because of accurate – relevant alternatives to what was searched on.

If the layout on the front end display is poor – is probably due to a CSS clash and you may need to either change your theme or work on the CSS styling.
