TrafficGuard launches ‘Pmax Solution’ to reinforce Google Performance Max security
Australia – Digital ad verification and fraud prevention platform TrafficGuard, has launched its Performance Max (PMax) Channel Solution to provide robust safeguards for businesses that rely on Google’s Performance Max in their digital marketing strategies.
This solution allows TrafficGuard to detect and categorize invalid traffic, generated by Google’s Performance Max AI wrongly recognising the ‘positive’ signals from illegitimate traffic, and optimizing towards these ‘users’.
Furthermore, It customizes exclusion lists tailored to each customer needs and subsequently guides Google’s Performance Max AI to avoid engaging with these undesirable elements, including low-value clickers and bad actors.
This strategic approach not only safeguards businesses from illegitimate traffic but also influences the AI to focus on elevating the presence of higher-value, authentic users, resulting to an increased return on ad spend as budget is optimized to target more genuine people, valuable insights so users can spot trends and optimize digital media channels accordingly, and time and resources saved with automated invalid traffic and fraud protections.
TrafficGuard’s Pmax channel solution also provides a Data Collection Filter, which enables businesses to mitigate their exposure to unwanted data collection, which is critical in the prevention of the inadvertent collection of children’s data by businesses utilizing PMax and ensures businesses comply with local data privacy and child protection legislation.
Mathew Ratty, CEO of TrafficGuard, said, “We launched our Pmax Channel solution to give marketers greater visibility and control over their Performance Max campaigns. It provides in- depth reporting analysis, audience targeting solutions, and invalid traffic filters that enables marketers to maximize ROI, safeguard their campaigns and make informed decisions.”
“At the same time, they can influence the PMax algorithm to ensure the data it optimizes towards is as close to your target audience as possible. This enables businesses to prevent the negative effects of the black box algorithm, as they can influence it to their advantage,” he added.
Meanwhile, Elie Shuggi, chief product officer at TrafficGuard, mentioned, “This solution addresses a crucial need within our marketing community. Trusting black box algorithms has become increasingly challenging, and we believe TrafficGuard’s PMax solution offers the protection they seek.”
