    Oke, I ran 2 campaigns on bing, firstly I was wondered why my CR is so low (I had 170 clicks on the bing stats - my lp - and only 20 on the offer). After some research, I just realised that I got TONS of duplicated clicks. I contacted support, obvious they said their algorithm is working fine but they wasn't able to provide me a full rep. of the ip's who clicked on my campaign. Do you believe that? They showed me the dates, the country, even the cities...but not the IP's. I paid like 5x more. Even I had CPC $0.1, in fact I paid $0.5 / view, wtf

    Not sure what went on there, but I definitely have my doubts that a company as large as Bing would want to 'scam' users over a small portion of money. If this was really the case they would have already have hundreds of lawsuits.

    I think Mircosoft is a big company. They won't scam you. Maybe competitors did those clicks.

    dude , a lot of marketers , including myself have churned a lot on paid traffic , well thats how it works , you need to test a lot so you can find something that works , in the last 4 days i spent $950 on fb ads with $120 profit lol but I am constantly improving and soon the ROI will turn around to be positive , so keep testing

    Totally agree on this. Not saying in any way that Bing is not shit. They are! but totally from different reasons, not scamming.

    Why wouldn't Microsoft approve fake traffic? What makes you think a big company doesn't play blackhat tactics? Just because it is a big business with a monopoly on pc systems and a huge market for console games doesn't mean that same valiant honor exists in their advertising department. Stop with the "paint it white" mentality and start using common logic. Same reason as to why Google and Amazon keep growing, people just assume because high paying clicks and sales that these companies are saints and gods, divine holiness that can do no evil, ever.

    Guys, I'm not saying they are scamming. I'm saying that their ads system is a SHIT. Yes, they count duplicate clicks, if u hate someone you can 100x click on his ads and he will be charged for 100 clicks.
