At what point do we identify a user?

We identify a user or bot as soon as they visit the website. This means that they don’t necessarily have to come from Google.Ads for us to have them already blocked. If a bot or a fraud click has occurred on your site directly before clicking your ad, they may already be blocked.

What are suspicious clicks?

Our service labels click as suspicious when there is any chance the traffic can be legit. 

Do I need to do something to block fraud clicks?

Clickfraud.dev does the job for you, you don’t need to do absolutely nothing!

Why is automatic IP blocking important?

Automatic IP blocking is a feature only relevant for your Google.Ads account and have numerous advantages. First of all, by automatically blocking clickers that are committing fraud, you are reducing the number of clicks they can produce on your ads. The direct result of this is that the attacker’s IP is blocked, and you are not losing money.

Secondly, our service adds the fraudulent IP across all of your Google.Ads campaigns, even if the fraud was triggered in only one ad from a completely different campaign. Lastly, as an advertiser or a business owner, you have many other things to take care of and worry about than adding each IP manually and wasting your precious time.

What is the IP range?

An IP range is a group of IP addresses allocated to a subsidiary service provider. They are defined by the number of bits and can be divided into groups. A single IP (32 bit) is marked as 255.255.65.2

A medium-range of IP, 24 bit, includes 256 IP addresses from the same service provider range and it can be marked for example 255.255.65.0/24 or 255.255.65.*.

A broad range of IP, 16 bit, includes 65,536 IP addressed from the same service provider range and it can be marked. For example, 255.255.0/16 or 255.255.*.*.

Our algorithms take advantage of the fact that many times click fraud is performed from the same IP ranges and networks. Thus, blocking a range or a network that has been proved malicious will prevent future click fraud attempts. Also, this tactic will save valuable space in Google’s IP exclusion list, which is limited to 500.

Is there support in case I need some help?

Sure! You can contact a representative directly for any questions or clarifications you may need, using the chat option within the Clickfraud.dev personal account, by sending emails (info@clickfraud.dev) or calling the contact numbers.

I lost my login credentials, how can I get them back?

In case you do not remember your password, you can click on the Forgot Password option on the login page of your account and an email will be sent to you, with which you will be able to create a new password. In case you do not remember any login information you can send an email and a representative will contact you in order to restore your account information.

Am I a victim of click fraud?
Nowadays, almost every advertiser is suffering from some form of click fraud, be it large or small. Click fraud is growing at an alarming rate, with the general consensus being that up to 20% of the total advertising budget for each online advertiser is spent on fraudulent clicks. If you are advertising on major search engines, you are probably a victim of click fraud.
 
To know if you are a victim of click fraud or not, look in your Google.Ads dashboard and see if you find, for example, a rise in clicks non-related to any campaign or possible reason you can think of.
 
You can also notice if there has been an unusual drop in your conversions and you haven’t made any change to your budget or campaigns. Moreover, when checking your website analytics, if you see an increase of unusual traffic coming from unexpected locations, take notice as this can signal click fraud.
 
You should always be suspecting your competitors and unsatisfied clients, both will likely look for ways to hurt your company. The competitors part is especially true if you are in a highly competitive industry as clicks are more expensive and thus more painful for you.
are you a victim?
Why do you need access to my Google.Ads account?
To apply automatic IP blocking to your account, we must have access to your Google.Ads account. This access is required for our system to make changes to the exclusion lists of your campaigns to stop click fraud attacks on your account in real-time. We realize that this is indeed a sensitive matter and because of that, we are very strict when it comes to our client’s privacy.
 
No modifications will be done to your Google.Ads account apart from managing all of your campaign’s exclusion lists. No one will access your PPC account unless you request us to do so.

Why do you charge based on the traffic of the protected website?

We check your website visitors once every minute to identify the parasites. The more traffic – the greater the workload on our systems.

We assume that it would be more logical to make a price plan based on the size of the advertising budget from a business point of view. With an average click fraud volume of 17-29% (we didn’t come up with these numbers, there are global statistics at different sources, for example, this one), this approach may be more understandable. But as we have already mentioned earlier, our price only depends on the cost of analyzing your traffic.

How will you check my website traffic?

We will take your word for it. No, seriously. After installing our counters on your website, we will know your attendance accuracy for up to one visit.

I don't need to protect all my advertising companies, only certain ones…

We analyze all traffic to your website, and we mark down potential clickers.

Why do I need to add an extra code to my website?

The code added on your website helps us to have an extra layer of accuracy in detecting the user’s behavior on your site.

How fast do you block a fraudulent IP?
Our system monitors your traffic at all times and the process of blocking an IP happens instantaneously. The moment our system detects click fraud, it also tells Google to block the IP.
