  1. I have checked the access log at /var/log/apache2/access.log

  2. I found that SemrushBot, AhrefsBot, and PetalBot was making the connections.

  3. I have added the below content to the custom instruction of robots.txt File at the Content-->Design-->Configuration

    User-agent: PetalBot
    Disallow: /
    User-agent: SemrushBot
    Disallow: /
    User-agent: AhrefsBot
    Disallow: /
