Apa itu click fraud?
Click fraud adalah tindakan klik pada sesuatu iklan bukan dengan tujuan sebagai pengguna tapi lebih kepada agenda mendapatkan keuntungan secara penipuan sama ada klik secara berkumpulan mahupun perseorangan.
Isu ni dah lama. Tapi masih ada yang belum sedar.
Walaupun kita klik banyak iklan dalam banyak blog, Nuffnang tetap boleh kesan siapa yang klik iklan tu, blog mana yang dapat klik banyak, dan dari mana klik tu datang. For your information, dah ada team click-click ni yang dah kena banned..
Kalau akaun persendirian kena banned aku tak pernah dengar lagi. Tak sedap la pulak nak dengar kalau ada akaun persendirian yang kena banned.
Bawah ni ada trick baru geng-geng gila click ni nak menipu. Makin pandai diorang ni tambah-tambah point ke empat tu :
- clicking on other bloggers’ ads and leaving a comment behind asking/hinting to the owner to click on their ads back
- asking for blog visitors’ help to click on the ads
- registering a large number of blogs and clicking on ads on each of them
- repeatedly switching to a different IP to click on own ads
Churpchurp dan Nuffnang adalah dari syarikat yang sama so tak mustahil diorang tak boleh kesan penipuan klik dalam setiap iklan diorang. Berjaga-jagalah sebelum akaun korang di suspend satu hari nanti.
Berikut adalah email dari Robb Chew tentang amaran kepada penipu klik ni:
We take a break from our regular programming to bring you a community service message about something that is rather worrying to us lately.
Asyou might already know, there are 2 types of Nuffnang campaigns thatbloggers may earn from: Metered Cost per Impression (mCPM) Campaigns,which pay according to the number of blog visitors who view the adsrunning on blogs; and Cost-Per-Click (CPC) campaigns, which paybloggers based on the number of clicks generated on the ads.
We’venoticed that certain groups have been engaging in click fraud, which isdefined as clicking on CPC advertisements intentionally just togenerate earnings for a blog’s owner. We understand that some of youmay just be anxious about earning some side income from displaying thebanner ads, but do note that this is in fact a violation of our Terms& Conditions under Section 6.
Among some of the actions which constitute click fraud are;
– clicking on other bloggers’ ads and leaving a comment behind asking/hinting to the owner to click on their ads back
– asking for blog visitors’ help to click on the ads
– registering a large number of blogs and clicking on ads on each of them
– repeatedly switching to a different IP to click on own ads
Banner ads spaces are bought by advertisers to promote their advertising campaign. Ads are are only supposed to be clicked on if the viewer isinterested to find out more about the advertising campaign, not for theintention of earning extra money. Merely clicking on banner ads for theintention of earning extra money would jeopardize the effectiveness of a campaign. It may seem harmless, but click fraud benefits no one inthe long run because should this situation worsen, the frequency of adcampaigns might be significantly reduced as advertisers will beselective to only advertise on blogs with no records of click fraud,reducing the number of ad space available to advertisers.
Oursystem is capable of tracking these actions mentioned above, which aredocumented and if necessary, be used as evidence for any legalpurposes. In the past, Nuffnang has suspended and banned variousindividuals and groups for involved with this offence. However, as thenumber of bloggers who engage in click fraud has been growing in analarming rate within our community, we are forced to be more vigilantto bring this to an end. We would take the necessary action to preservethe quality of blogs and ad space available to advertisers so othermembers of the community are not affected by those who engage in clickfraud.
We realize that many Nuffnangers may not be aware that they might unintentionally be involved with click fraud, therefore we ask that youplease help us spread the word. If you are aware of any of your friendsor other Nuffnangers who have been engaging in such acts, we wouldappreciate it if you could kindly educate them on the harms of engaging in click fraud activities.
Thank you for your attention.
Say NO to click Fraud.
