Click Fraud Blog
June 12th, 2008
A number of months ago I wrote a speculative article on how click fraud could be used as a tool of activists.
The article Low Quality Clicks as a Means of Passive Demonstration painted a fictional picture on how the bottom line of an organisation can be effected by attacks on it’s internet advertising spend.
Whilst monitoring articles posted on the net, I came across this piece called operation deplete on how a group are advocating (using negative language) the clicking of their adversaries adsense ads. It was only a matter of time before my predictions came true.
DISCLAIMER: I do not condone the methods used by this group and I support neither the activists or the target of their protest.
