How to block visitors from China Brazil Russia

It scares me to see in web stats how many times I get hits from China, Russia, Brazil, Kazakhstan and others. I would be happy if I could block all visitors outside of North America. Any way to do this?

There are no input forms or mailto links on your site so there is nothing for a spammer to use and nothing to be frightened about.

All major search engines will visit your site regularly including Yandex (Russia) and Baidu (China). This is no more suspicious than the Googlebot.

Also remember that the web is international. You could loose inbound links when people from Europe or Australia report the "broken" links to the linking sites.

Hi Peter,
Thanks for checking it out, I am more concerned about corporate espionage then spammers so I am waiting to put specific information on our website. All the best, Tom
