Proof that Buying Bot Traffic is Ridiculously Easy - AdOps

Listen to Shailin Dhar's interview with the AdOps podcast, where he discusses his previous report on the ease of procuring and monetizing non-human traffic.

In under a week, Shailin was able to create a fake publisher site, fill it with bot traffic, and make a profit. He did all of this while having the industry standard anti fraud filters installed on the site. 
The vast majority of the traffic that he purchased was able to beat MOAT, Double Verify and IAS’s detection platforms, as it was engineered to pass their screening processes.
