Limit Your Exposure
Limit Your Exposure to Areas Where You Do Business
If your website business sells widgets to a small area, limit the website traffic you will accept. If you own a restaurant in Milan and use your website to sell Cannelloni to the local neighborhood, limit acceptable traffic and input to your immediate area.
If you are not doing business out of your city or state, why allow traffic from China, Russia, Viet Nam or the United States.
It?s fun and exciting to have the whole world at the feet of your website. But does it serve a legitimate purpose? Be selective and be sensible. Much of this selection and sensibility will derive from examining your server logs.
