Email Service Provider SendPulse Spams Me with Russian Greeting Card

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 17:22:16 +0000

In the most hilarious example of why SendPulse is perhaps one of the worst email service providers out there, they have been spamming me with Russian greeting cards. Yes, nothing quite says “Happy Holidays American, we want your business” like spamming an advertising journalist with unwanted Russian email. Of course it raises the  very question, that if they can’t manage their own email violations, how good can they be? (Hint: They suck really badly, do not use them!)

Exposed: TechTimes Cheating Advertisers

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 18:42:11 +0000 has been caught more than once running popups of their pages with ads “crammed” into the page so that even content can’t be seen. We’ve spoken to Google and other companies about them in the past, and they’ve showed up on fraud reports for clients. However, here is an example of what they are doing. If you notice, the popup comes up and there is no actual content on the page. The entire popup that is no re-sizable has ads covering the page both with DHTML overlays and other techniques. All clicks are “forced” on the ads. Also, running

Lifescript, one of the largest co-reg and lead generation companies in the business is insolvent according to employees of the company including their Vice President of Media, Sal Guarino. There have been rumors that the market for their services fell in the last 12 months with losing tons of clients to other platforms, but more importantly to programmatic display which has cut out their pricing model. I received an interesting text message also claiming that they are buying media that they can not afford. ““Pace, Lifescript is closing and they are doing deals all over for cpc traffic.

10% of Facebook is Duplicate Accounts

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 17:57:41 +0000

The third quarter earnings report that came out from Facebook last week had some great news for the company. Ad revenue was up, number of users were up, and the company is getting through the whole “Russia Fake News” issue without much of a problem at all. Despite what you’ll likely read most places, however, the news wasn’t entirely positive. Buried within the earnings report there were a couple pieces of information that aren’t so good. First, Facebook has raised the number of estimated duplicate accounts on their social network from approximately 6% to 10%. This is quite a big

Is Ads.txt Fraud Already Here?

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 17:26:12 +0000

Ads.txt is a fairly system that was developed by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) to help combat ad fraud. The system is just a txt file that publishers can add to their webserver. The file will list all authorized inventory sellers, so that unauthorized reselling as well as domain spoofing can be combatted. The system itself is quite simple, but as we are now learning, even this anti-fraud effort can fall victim to fraud. Publishers have reported that other third-party sellers have begun contacting them to be added to their ads.txt files. The vendors claim that they were attempting to
