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 unknowingly pay a lot of money each month for this unwanted traffic. We stop common forms of ad fraud such as click fraud, retargeting and affiliate fraud, and additionally enable you to block low-quality users – users who click without the intention to 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 used to execute malicious attacks.
Low-quality Traffic
Traffic that clicks on your ads but has little or no intention of actually buying your products. This includes accidental clicks, clicks outside the set region, or simply your competitors clicking on your ads to drain your advertising budget.
Malicious Publishers
Malicious publishers set up fake websites, fill them with plagiarized content, register them with ad networks, and then direct bot traffic to them. We maintain a blocklist of "malicious" publishers and flag traffic from these sources.
By routing their traffic through private IP addresses, bot developers obscure their location and identity. We maintain a blocklist of known proxy connection details and IP addresses and flag traffic from these sources.
Automation Tools
Fraudsters use tools like Puppeteer or Selenium, which were originally programmed to help developers test their work. However, these tools can also be used to very easily create bots that visit websites and click on ads.

Unwanted traffic infects critical marketing activities

Fake Clicks

Bots are draining your marketing budget by clicking ads. 16% of all ad clicks are estimated to be fake.

Fake Remarketing

Bots impersonate high-value users including browser history and thus end up in remarketing lists, wasting expensive CPCs.

Skewed Audiences

If bots are included when you create your look-alike audiences, your campaigns will continue to be increasingly served to bots.

Inaccurate Optimization

Ad tech algorithms tend to favor ad campaigns that have high click-through rates. However, if these clicks come from bots, your spend on unwanted traffic will gradually increase.

Fake Leads

Bots are now able to fill out forms and thus also profit from cost-per-lead (CPL) campaigns. The result: fake leads in your CRM that cause headaches for your sales team.

Fake CMP Stats

Bots accept cookie banners to collect cookies from websites and impersonate a specific audience. The average opt-in rate across industries is 60.1%. What percentage do bots account for?

How it works

Automatically exclude invalid audiences

With the help of Negative Audience Groups, you automatically block fake and low-quality traffic in real time. On all your channels such as Google Ads, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, LinkedIn and many more.

Remove unwanted traffic using the real-time analytics suite

With our analytics suite, you can detect fake and low-quality traffic at a glance. Additionally, filter your data based on various options such as channel, campaign, geolocation, keyword, device, browser and many more.

Real-time machine learning technology

Using a combination of supervised and unsupervised machine learning models, the system learns how users interact with your website. Anomalous behavior that does not match the specific behavior profile of your website is thus detected in real time and reliably blocked.
