Fake and low-quality traffic is eating up your ad budget

On average, 16% of PPC ad spend is wasted on automated non-human and low-quality traffic. Advertisers pay to target and retarget this unwanted traffic month over month. We stop common forms of advertising fraud like click fraud, retargeting fraud and affiliate fraud and allow you to exclude low-quality users that always click but never buy.

Who do we block?

With fraud0 your ads are not shown to fraudulent and non-converting sources.
Malicious Botnets
A network of computers, smartphones or IoT devices whose security has been breached and control ceded to a third party, who is using the network to execute malicious attacks.
Low-quality Traffic
That is traffic that clicks on your ads but has none to very little intention of actually purchasing your products. Like accidentals clicks, out of geo clicks, researchers scanning the market or simply your competitors who click on your ads to drain your ad budget.
Malicious Publishers
Bad publishers setup fake websites, fill them with plagiarised content, get them into ad exchanges drive bot traffic to these sites. We maintain a blacklist of malicious publishers and flag traffic coming from these sources.
Residential proxies allow bot makers to “bounce the traffic” through residential IP addresses and disguise it. We maintain an internal blacklist of known proxy connection details & IP addresses and flag traffic from these sources.
Automation Tools
Fraudsters deploy tools like Puppeteer or Selenium, which were originally created to help programmers test their work, but they make it simple to write bots that visit pages and click on ads.

Unwanted traffic infects critical marketing activities.

Fake Clicks

Bots drain your marketing budget by clicking on ads. 17% of all ad clicks are estimated to be fake (Juniper Research, Feb 2022)

Fake Remarketing

Bots are being tagged for remarketing costing you high CPCs.

Skewed Audiences

When building look-alike audiences and you have bots in the mix, you’re only attracting more bad traffic that has no intention of converting. Garbage in garbage out.

Inaccurate Optimisation

When ad tech algorithm see higher click rates, they increase bids or budget allocation to those sources. The problem is, bots love to click on ads - humans don’t - so more budget is automatically allocated to fraudulent sources.

Fake CMP Stats

Bots give consent in order to collect cookies of certain sites and appear to be a particular audience segment. The average consent rate across industries is 60,1%. How much of that are real humans?

Fake Leads

Bots fill out a lead form to get paid on Cost Per Lead campaigns. These fake leads make it into your CRM causing your sales team huge headaches while they’re trying to separate real leads from fake leads.
