Expected Behavior

Due to the wide variety of use cases, there's no way to accurately predict visitation behavior. Scrapers are notorious for ignoring robots.txt rules and accessing disallowed content. This is especially true if they're dispatched to achieve a specific goal rather than for some general purpose.

Access Control

Using Robots.txt

User Agent Token Description
008 Should match instances of 008

You can block 008 or limit its access by setting user agent token rules in your website's robots.txt.

# robots.txt
# This blocks 008

User-agent: 008
Disallow: /

Instead of doing this manually, you can generate your robots.txt automatically using the free API or Wordpress plugin.
