Bots visit your website regularly for various reasons: Some simply want to ping your server to check its uptime, but some bots are more malicious in nature. These bots want to harm your website, your advertising budget or even your whole business in various ways:

  • Crash your server via DDoS attacks
  • Steal credit card details of your customers
  • Scrape your prices to benefit your competition

The biggest impact of criminal bot attacks on e-commerce is ad fraud:

  • Automated bots are programmed to click on your ads and continuously drain your marketing budget just to fill the pockets of fraudsters. According to our own data, 16% of all ad clicks are invalid or low-quality.
  • Over 40% of businesses lose between 3% and 10% of their revenue to automated bot attacks.
  • Malicious bots are largely responsible for the majority of the $81 billion in losses expected in 2022 from digital advertising fraud.

The following white paper highlights the significance of bot traffic and shows you exactly who is attacking you, how they do it, and what the impact of the attacks is on your business.

We will also show you why you should protect yourself from bot traffic and how you can do it.
