A primer: What it is, who's behind it, when it's going to hit the fan. Let there be no doubt: Click fraud is going to hit the fan. And well it should. Fraudsters, working in cahoots with crooked publishers, are making fortunes ripping off advertisers for millions by sending bogus traffic to web sites and generating phony clicks on ads. The problem is huge. Perhaps a third of all traffic to web sites is bogus. Now here’s a chance for media planners and buyers to get up to speed on click fraud. Leading the webinar: Craig Spiezle, executive director of the Online Trust Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting consumers’ online security, privacy and identity.
