Click Fraud Prevention

What is Click Fraud

In the pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, repeated clicks on an advertisement hosted on a website, with or without using bots, is referred to as Click Fraud.

Industries Affected

All online businesses that use online advertisements or traffic diversion from aggregators.

Why is it done

In a PPC campaign, a brand pays for the number of clicks that are made on its advertisement. Click Fraud is used to increase the number of hits on the advertisement to either drain the advertising budget of the brand or to increase the revenue of the website where the advertisement is hosted.

What happens when your website is a victim

Two major affects - Firstly, you pay for traffic that is not desired. So your ad spend does not result into good metrics for your brand. Secondly, your ad budget expires sooner than expected.
