How much can I save?
It depends on your industry. From our experience with existing clients, we see that over 90% of them save money when using click fraud protection. In less competitive industries such as health and nonprofit organizations, the rate of fraudulent clicks is lower than more competitive industries, such as eCommerce, lead generation sites, locksmith, lawyers etc, all of which tend to have a significantly higher than average rate of fraudulent clicks.
How much exactly? We have seen cases of people saving 70% (Locksmith, August 2017), with the average being 10%-20% of all AdWords spend being saved.
Doesn't Google Protect Against Click Fraud Automatically?
Google takes some steps towards blocking click fraud, but only the most basic types of attacks.
For example, if a competitor is clicking your ads hundreds of times from the same PC on the same IP address then Google will detect this and refund your clicks. However, Google will only provide you with a credit for the amount spent on fraudulent clicks after 60 days – it will not block the fraud permanently and it will still use up your monthly budget!
Plus, Google does not detect the more advanced forms of click fraud. As a specialist fraud detection platform this is where we come in. 100% of our resources are aimed at stopping and identifying fraud, and our fraud detection process is much more thorough than Google’s.
How Long Does It Take For The Program To Work?
Almost instantly. Once someone (be they a real user, bot or fraudster) clicks on your ad they are passed through our “intake funnel”. This allows us to store all their information that we use to determine if a user is fraudulent or not. Passing a user through this intake funnel takes less than 0.1 seconds, so your end user will notice no difference in terms of loading times or landing page experience.
We then analyze this data to determine if the click was fraudulent or not. If it was, the IP address is then added to your blocklist.
