    Do i block Iran + Saudi Arabia

    I have a new proxy : TraceHide | The Worlds Fastest Proxy Service!

    I am receiving over 2,000 UV daily and i am using Google adsense and i noticed that a big percent of my traffic is coming from Iran + Saudi Arabia,

    How would i go about blocking those 2 countries from accessing my proxy and is this a recommended move to increase my websites revenue?

    Yes you should. Both are resource wasters with little to no earnings.

    there traffic makes adsense clicks low, you may end up smart pricing

    Can be done in your .htaccess file iirc? (not looked into the details)

    Blocking "bad countries" with Geop IP is more elegant than .htaccess for example.

    I agree that Iran is a bandwidth waster, but from my experience Iran blocks any proxy very fast anyway. I say so having received many mails from Iran proxy list subscribers.

    With regard to traffic from Saudis, and other "bad countries" opinions vary. Actually, I would be interested in having that traffic relayed to one of my proxies, and I might post a new thread with a small incentive for anyone who forwards "bad traffic" to me.

    Regards,
    H.
