Closing The Door To The Russians, Chinese

Stephen Yagielowicz blogs for XBiz:

There was a post a little while ago on our message board where one of our members was seeking an .htaccess file that would keep Chinese and Russian surfers off his sites. This webmaster wanted to restrict access from these countries as he felt that allowing these foreign surfers into his website was just wasted bandwidth.

I too used to feel this way too, but changing market conditions including increasing competition and shrinking traffic volumes have me re-thinking my strategies for dealing with global traffic sources.
