Spamming on Bing Ads

 9:10 am on Oct 16, 2013 (gmt 0)

I run a campaign for one of my pages on bingads. I target US UK audience. But somehow few website from Malaysia, Philippians and near b y countries are exploiting my campaign. The traffic they send remain less than 2 second on landing page. While the users come from Google adwords remain more than 5 minutes on the same page.

All I can understand these domains are spamming on bingads. I don't know if it is alrite to share those domain info. I am attaching them here.

Yaashul. I removed the specifics from your post, because those urls could change or have other issues (spyware/malware/etc) associated with them.

The syndication partners with Yahoo / Bing have been an issue for many years.

Are you turning off all of the "partner" traffic and just allowing your ads to run on Yahoo/Bing sites? Usually that will clean up the traffic.

You can see the instructions here, except in the step #4 you will want to use the second option: "Bing & Yahoo Search (owned and operated) only

Isn't it amount to cheating on Microsoft part. They are constantly charging money for the traffic which is not actually a user (for me it seems as robot).

"Isn't it amount to cheating on Microsoft part. They are constantly charging money for the traffic which is not actually a user (for me it seems as robot)."

One man's "cheating" is another man's "increased market share".

Haha, sarcasm, getting me nowhere since 2003... wait, since 1965. :-)

I changed all my campaign to Yahoo/Bing site only still getting traffic from all those crappy sites which are using campaign budgets.

I called Bing customer care today. They told me it will take 48 hours for changes.

I just setup a new account today, it has been a while, and I swear I had the right checkbox checked in... well I look at my stats and there is a ton of crap traffic.

I go back to my settings and it appears I had the wrong box checked. I was only showing ads on their lousy partners. So I totally understand the frustration.

Did your traffic ever clear up?

No I never got the solution. After talking with Bing support that give the following reply

Regarding your unwanted clicks, most of the websites now appearing on the report are from Bing and Yahoo syndicated partners. Unfortunately, for India market we do not have any option to opt out for syndicated partners. The only possible option to remove that option is to create a new account and set a USD currency with a US billing address as the US market has that option to disable the syndicated partner options.

So I have now disabled bing ads will see it in 6 month if they improve.

There is an advertiser running a handful of parked godaddy domains with nothing but links on them for keywords I need. He's spamming the results with sites that begin with ww7. If you take out the 7 and just use ww., a pretty site with little content appears. If you use www., nothing comes up. I talked to Bing, and they are clueless. The rep would not click on the ad, so he kept typing ww. or www. and got the pretty page or no page, so he thought I was nuts and he never saw the links page. I've used the violation reporting URL to no avail. I think all Bing wants is money and does not care what their search results look like.

Very right Ember... they don't care about advertiser at all.
