    Default Blocking SEO Bots

    I have noticed that some of my competitors have started to copy my backlinks so I would like to stop my backlinks from showing up in tools like Moz, Ahrefs and others.

    There seem to be two ways to do this, Robots.txt and .Htaccess. How do you guys do this?
    Every act of kindness done is a charity.

    Well, if you and your competitor each have links from the exact same sites, then I suppose it comes down to other factors as to who ranks highest. Better content, faster site, etc probably has the edge. I'd say it's a competition thing.


    To the OP, how do you figure modifying the htaccess on your own website will somehow stop a bot from viewing the links on other websites? There is no way to hide your backlink profile.

    thanks for the answer. I don't think you can stop competitors because there are always tools like Majestic and I don't think you can block it. I guess you have to win ith other things.
