What is affiliate fraud?
Affiliate marketing fraud is when a company or individual uses fraudulent means to earn money through an affiliate program. This can include click fraud, where fake clicks are generated on ads to earn commission payments; or cookie stuffing, where fake cookies are placed on computers to track affiliate sales. Malicious affiliate ad programs seek to do this so they can earn money from false clicks or sales. Pay per click affiliate programs need to be monitored to avoid affiliate scams and affiliate program fraud.
How to prevent fraud in affiliate marketing?
With industry-leading software, TrafficGuard can safeguard your business against malicious affiliates. You can sit back and enjoy all the benefits without worrying about anything else — we’re here to help with our industry-leading affiliate marketing fraud detection.
Affiliate fraud can be difficult to detect, as it is often done through automated means. However, our software may indicate that affiliate scams are taking place, such as an unusually high number of clicks on an ad, or a high number of sales from a single IP address. If you suspect that affiliate fraud is taking place, please contact us immediately so that we can investigate.
What are the risks of affiliate marketing click fraud?
Online affiliate marketing scams are a type of online scam in which a person or company deceives another party into thinking they are doing business with a legitimate affiliate site, when in reality they are dealing with a scammer.
This can result in financial losses for the unsuspecting party, as well as damage to the reputation of the affiliate site. Some common tactics used by scammers include setting up fake websites that resemble the legitimate affiliate site, sending spam emails that appear to be from the affiliate site, and creating fake social media profiles. This makes affiliate fraud prevention essential.
