Will Incapsula block good bots like Google?

Created at:

Incapsula’s unique client identification technology allows us to tell whether your web site visitors are humans or bots.

Our client database holds hundreds of bot classifications and we can identify the specific type of bot visiting your web site.

Since we know that not all bots were created equal, each bot is marked either as a good bot or a bad bot, and the bad bots rule is restricted to those bots that pose a threat to your web site security.

Google, as all other search engine bots, is marked as a good bot and will never be blocked by the bad bots rule.
