I am running a PPC Directory and MSN Bot is clicking on affiliate links sending a lot of junk traffic to them. They have raised this issue with me, and I am trying my best to protect them from clicking affiliate links. Any help is highly appreciated.

You could:
  1. Cloak links for known bots
  2. Use robots.txt
  3. Use javascript links

That could explain an issue I am having with PPC.

Does anyone know if the majors have stopped msn bot from doing the same thing to their advertisers?
