Put the violin away. google Doesn't care. Part II
Google LOVES Click Fraud
Wow! My opinion is pretty shocking considering it’s coming from a digital marketing company. Everything Google does or doesn’t do points to the fact they are dependent on click-fraud as a revenue source.
Here is the evidence that Google has no intention of shutting down a major revenue source:
- Google’s click fraud algorithm does zero – nothing. It’s made up actually.
- Google prevents Ad users and third party click fraud protection programs from blocking devices. Blocking devices is the only sure way to stop click fraud as IPs change constantly as mobile users move location to location.
- Google doesn’t actually look at click fraud claims and server logs sent to them. They just deny refunds to click fraud claims like a bad insurance company.
- I literally had a conversation with a Google rep that told me after I complained about a competitor engaged in click fraud – “There’s nothing stopping you from clicking on their ad…”
Google A Co-conspirator In Wire Fraud
By preventing Ad customers and third party click fraud protection utilities from blocking at the device level Google knows that click fraud will continue and enrich them. As a co-conspirator with every click-fraud violator in fraud. Google benefits tremendously to the tune of .. my guess .. about a 50% increase in Ad revenue. The benefit and knowledge this is going combined with the fact that Google COULD ACTUALLY STOP CLICK FRAUD but doesn’t is enough evidence.
