Is bing sending fake clicks or is my AdsBridge misconfigured

    Hi guys,

    There has been a few days that I've had my Bing Ads paused and all of the sudden AdsBridge registers about 10k visits and clicks (of course no conversion).

    I believe is that Bing has a bot that goes through all the keywords, but I'm not sure.

    Hey there, gnr5 !

    Hope you're doing great!
    No one will check your AdsBridge configuration better then we can. Please, email us to support@adsbridge.com and mark your message "From Affiliatefix", so we could recognize you.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Yes Bing has an adbot that pretty much follows everything. It can cause your stats to be way off if it's not detected and filtered out. I'm pretty sure this is what's happening.

    If you view your stats in bing, you'll see you are not being charged for these clicks. Also, you can check the ips of the clicks and they will(should) indicate they are Microsoft ips.

    @gnr5 Thrive can automatically filter out bot clicks so it doesn't contaminate your "real" campaign data
