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
dcrawl Should match instances of dcrawl

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

# robots.txt
# This blocks dcrawl

User-agent: dcrawl
Disallow: /

Instead of editing your robots.txt manually, use the API or Wordpress plugin to keep your robots.txt up to date with the agent list automatically.
