  • 1. Augustine Fou- 1 - Digital Ad Fraud Mitigation Techniques Dr. Augustine Fou http://linkd.in/augustinefou acfou @mktsci .com February 2014
  • 2. Augustine Fou- 2 - Blacklisting Sites Value Exclude sites from serving your ads Caveat For every site excluded, bad guys put up more (because they don’t have to play by the rules).

  • 5. Augustine Fou- 5 - Bot Detection Source: Spider.io March 2013 Value Good guys use algorithms to detect unusual behaviors indicative of bots (rather than humans) Caveat It’s an arms race between good and bad; bots are more sophisticated and can fake mouse movements and keep cookies.

Augustine Fou- 6 - Using CAPTCHAs “Startup called Vicarious automatically solves CAPTCHAs.” Oct 2013 http://bit.ly/1bFo9lZ Value Captchas deter bots from filling in forms and stealing content and cookies.
