Anatomy of bots: how we saved a major tech company from paying seven figures for fraudulent traffic

We hear a lot about bot fraud and fake traffic. There are astounding numbers and when the money is being paid for a brand budget but being lost to these bad actors, you can be sure there’s no significant business growth coming from it. It is essential to take this beyond the headlines, from abstraction and dive into what is happening here. Following is a vivid example of a bot campaign in action, with one of our clients. All names… Continue reading

This Week in Native Ads 8/9

One big thing London folks, please do come along to our event later this month. As a kiwi in New York the biggest change between how content is seen here vs internationally, is the practicality. In other markets people are a lot more practical, I do this to get X or Y. Here the value chains are bigger. So they’re trying to help move the needle on that component. It’s good and bad.

Why context in premium environments dominate how we respond to content

Working at Nudge, I get to look behind the advertising industry’s ‘curtain’ on a daily basis. Marketers who know me often ask ‘what’s the one thing I should do more of?’. I always tell them the same thing – focus on improving the quality of your content campaigns.

Killing Wasted Spend: how to staunch the bleeding of digital dollars and reignite growth

  Imagine, for a moment, an industry outside of digital advertising where waste was as commonplace.   You turn on CNBC in the morning to watch in horror that the aluminum market managed to misplace 7 billion dollars worth of the commodity. Vanished without a trace.

If you’re using Time on Page, to evaluate content you’re doing it wrong

Time on Page, measures when you arrive on a page and when you click off, the difference between those two. But what happens is that with a bounce rate of 30-40%, or even higher on amplified content (70-80%) that calculation is done off a small percentage of the visitors to the content. i.e. take this example, we amplified our post The Best Native Ads of 2015 with Yahoo Gemini. The top url, is our piece of content,… Continue reading
