It's important to know how to view your fraudulent logs to effectively identify and combat ad fraud. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to view your fraudulent logs.
To view your ad campaign summary, you need to log in to your account using your username and password.
Once you are logged in, navigate to the “Ad Fraud Protection” tab, select the “Paid clicks” section and lastly select the “Invalid Logs” category.
you will see a table that displays the IP, reason it was considered fraud, campaign, keyword, network, tracker, click id, time, timezone, country, ISP, referrer, URL, user agent, and language. You can sort the table by any of these columns to find specific information that you need.
Identify any patterns or trends that could indicate fraudulent activity. For example, you might notice that a particular IP address is repeatedly associated with fraudulent activity. Or perhaps particular Ad campaigns are being targeted more than others.
This might include blocking specific IPs or publishers, adjusting your targeting, or changing your ad creative.
If you need to download this data, you can do so via CSV. Simply click on the “Download CSV” button located at the top right of the table.
The main filter top bar allows you to choose a particular tracker, ad network, campaign, domains, reasons and date range. This filter is located at the top of the page, and you can use it to refine your results and gain insights into specific ad campaigns.
It's important to note that fraudulent logs are critical to effective marketing. Ad fraud costs the industry billions of dollars each year, and it can undermine the effectiveness of your advertising campaigns. By monitoring your fraudulent logs and taking action to combat ad fraud, you can protect your ad spend and ensure that your ads are being seen by real people who are interested in your product or service.
