Protect Your Ad Budget


In the dynamic realm of digital advertising, the issue of invalid traffic persists as a significant challenge for marketers. Among the array of concerns, the inadvertent drain on ad budgets caused by returning users or customers clicking on ads multiple times stands as a substantial threat to campaign efficiency. A pertinent case in point is evident within the sports betting industry, where users frequently return to re-login via Google, inadvertently clicking on ads and impacting ad spend. Yet, with TrafficGuard’s pioneering click frequency rules, advertisers can shield their budgets from such drains while ensuring targeted ad exposure.

The Dilemma Faced by Sports Betting Platforms: The Google Entry Point


Sports betting platforms encounter a unique challenge regarding returning users and repetitive ad clicks. Consider the scenario where a bettor initially navigates to a sports betting platform via Google to log back in or access their account. In the process, they inadvertently click on an ad displayed by the platform, unaware that their action contributes to the depletion of the platform’s ad budget.

Statistical Insights: The Impact on Ad Budgets


Statistics pertaining to the sports betting industry highlight the gravity of this issue:

  • In 2022, the sports betting sector experienced a 15% increase in ad spending compared to the previous year.
  • Within this sector, up to 25% of ad clicks were identified as potentially invalid due to returning users or customers.
  • An estimated 10% of these clicks originated from users re-logging into their accounts through search engine entry points like Google.


The Nexus of Click Fraud and Budget Depletion


For sports betting platforms and similar businesses, invalid traffic stemming from returning users clicking on ads adversely impacts their advertising endeavors:

  • Budget erosion: Repeated ad clicks from returning users lead to inflated costs without commensurate conversions, thus depleting ad budgets.
  • Misleading campaign metrics: High click-through rates (CTR) driven by invalid clicks skew campaign data, making it challenging to assess true performance accurately.


Leveraging TrafficGuard’s Click Frequency Rules: A Shield for Ad Budgets


TrafficGuard’s click frequency rules present an innovative solution tailored to safeguarding ad budgets for sports betting platforms:
