- The url inspector allows us to ban IPs that use forbidden words in urls. This way we have a powerful mechanism to control all queries to our website, even those that are redirected to a 404 page. For example, if we receive an url to access to wp-admin.php, that is typical of Wordpress sites, the url inspector can be configured to add the IP to blacklist because it's clear that it's not a valid query. This feature doesn't break other sef extensions installed.
