BrightFire has released an additional layer of click fraud detection and protection for its Pay-Per-Click Advertising service. This ad protection feature is available now to all BrightFire Pay-Per-Click Advertising customers at no additional cost.

What is Click Fraud Detection & Protection?

Did you know that digital ad fraud cost businesses approximately $65 billion in 2021? With BrightFire’s Click Fraud Detection & Protection feature combined with Google’s click fraud protection, your PPC ads will be better protected from invalid traffic clicking on your Google ads helping to ensure your ad budget is protected and your time isn’t wasted.

Stop Fraudsters & Bots Automatically

Fraudsters come in different disguises, and they can easily slip under the radar and cost you money without the proper protection. Here are the types of harmful sources we can keep from even being able to see your ads once fraudulent activity is detected:

  • Competitors: Yes, competitors can sometimes target your PPC ads to exhaust your budget. This type of click fraud can cause you to lose valuable leads for your agency.
  • Brand Enemies: When someone isn’t a fan of your agency, they may go out of their way to click on your ads to cost you money and deplete your ad budget.
  • Bots: Bots and botnets run by criminals and scammers make up a significant portion of PPC ad clicks. This feature will stop them right in their tracks.
  • Accidental Clicks: Even though these clicks are not malicious, they can cost you money.
  • Click Farms: These operations work to flood links with clicks to mimic human behavior, making them hard to spot.
  • Users in Foreign Countries: Even though Google Ads supports geographical targeting, it’s not 100% accurate.

Additionally, stopping bots and fraudulent ad clicks improves the machine learning that Google Ads uses to optimize ad placements. Fake conversions can lead to machine learning going after more low quality conversions. By prohibiting these low quality conversions, the machine learning will go after higher quality conversions.

Take Control of Your Ad Budget & Performance
