Our PPM banner ad system has been built with a number of anti-fraud measures to help prevent abuse of the site and unnecessary impressions being registered against your ad.
Functionality has been implemented that detects search bot traffic to the website and does not include either impressions or clicks from these sources when updating the Adverts. When a search bot visits a website, it sends data informing the server of it’s identity (via what is known as the ‘User Agent’ information).
While there are many hundreds of different search bots and therefore not every search bot will be detected, the functionality implemented will filter out the most common robots (Google, Yahoo, etc.) and any other robots identified by similar ‘User Agent’ information to ‘bot’, ‘spider’ or ‘crawler’.
Fraud detection is an issue that cannot be entirely eliminated, as even Google continues to have issues with it! The more sophisticated fraudsters click adverts and refresh pages in a manner that resembles genuine user activity, making them difficult to catch.
The fraud detection we have implemented will detect the more obvious attempts however, enabling reassurance to be made that advertisers are unlikely to be defrauded. If an advertiser believes fraud has occurred, the Advert Click and Advert Activity reports can be used to manually verify if it seems likely that this is the case. The implemented system has been thoroughly tested and works effectively.
