    Hi hats,

    I have run ads on :
    - Facebook
    - Google
    - Bing
    - Taboola
    - Bidvertiser
    - Propellerads

    I've found by analysing the traffic I get that Bidvertiser is 99% bots and Propellerads 80% bots.
    The others are good.

    Can you please tell me which other platforms are good against bots ?

    I want to display banners.

    Thanks,

    If you're running on Adwords/Bing search ads you should be getting real traffic. If you feel your competitor is clicking your ads you can contact Google, and you can also set up some IP bans and filter things. Are you in a BH niche or something?

    You're misunderstanding my post or didn't read it completely.

    The traffic I get from Google and Bings is fine.

    I'm not on a BH niche.

    Ah, well then the problem is simple. Small PPC providers often have trouble filtering out bot clicks. Many on BHW have made a living by faking clicks to ads on their sites, in fact. I'd recommend simply avoiding them and look into IG and other alternatives you haven't tried. Or spend that money refining your stable PPC platforms.

    For native ads you have to keep filtering publishers and see which one gives you the most real visitors. There's no any other way to avoid bot traffic that slips through the company's anti-fraud system. It has been a big problem for me last 2 years. From Google you should be mostly fine, but they cost a lot as you already know.

    Bots cost billions of dollars to advertisers (http://www.adweek.com/digital/bots-...tisers-72-billion-2016-says-ana-study-169072/).

    What is the conversion rate of 1000 clicks for adword traffic?

    Why do not you increase your budget on google?

    I started doing this, I'm banning every day decades of source IDs on Bidvertiser, there are like 90-95% source ids sending me bots.

    I'm still experimenting different patterns with google, I didn't stop with them.

    I posted this topic to find out other platforms with good quality traffic.

    Ask your account managers if its possible to give you whitelist and after you get enough data, get traffic only from the ones that do not send crappy traffic.

    I thought about that too, it's a great idea, but I'll have to still wait for more traffic, because currently that whitelist wouldn't be sufficient.

    I'm still overriding the bids on the good quality traffic sources, and there's no one where my override did a consequent difference on the traffic they provide me for now, I guess these are some small legit websites.

    Create multiple campaigns. Spend most on Whitelist and have one or two campaigns running on entire network so you test publishers. Otherwise you'll end up spending too much on bot traffic.

    Probably a newbie question, but how do you cross reference a traffic source id with the visitor on your website and determine that traffic source is sending bots??
