II. ANA/WHITE OPS BOT FRAUD TEST RESULTS (11:15AM – 12:15PM)
There are estimates that 25-50% of money spent on digital advertising is wasted and much of that is "bot fraud" – sites with phony traffic that collect payments from advertisers through the middlemen who aggregate space across many sites and resell the space for web publishers. Bot fraud affects display, video, and mobile advertising. ANA has partnered with White Ops on research with the objectives of determining the level of bot fraud occurring across the digital advertising of leading national advertisers, providing actionable data which advertisers can use to assess and reduce/eliminate bot fraud in future campaigns, and creating a credible and repeatable national benchmark for fraud levels. There were more than 30 ANA member companies who participated in this initiative. In this session, ANA Media Leadership Committee members will get a first look at the results of this very important industry research.
Michael Tiffany, Chief Executive Officer – White Ops
