anyone has any advsie on how to avoid/ check from competitors cliks? As I have lost of traffic and I use a system that tells me that moist of this "clients"only spent 2 seconds on home page before they take off and they are loomking for my products as I have access to check how/ where they come from and what they write on search engines, etc....
Any advise out there on how can I minimize costs on pay per clicks? Specially on OVERTURE, I feel my competition is doing the clicks themselves
thanks in advance
You will always get those clicks at the beginning of a Campaign. Start @ #10 and work your way up. If, at some point, you feel that you are under attack - contact Overture.
Remember that they have a system in place to monitor this and will automatically credit your account.
Overture has an algo that spots suspect clicks but don't rely on it
Also some companies are willing to work with you better than others, it can make a big difference at getting credits or refunds (of course that is after the fact, and not really preventative).
SitePoint had a good article on this issue. [promotionbase.com ]
