Issues faced by ecfroce
◆ Issue 1: Decline in brand image
Before the TV commercials and taxi ads were implemented, we were considering introducing it to avoid brand damage in unexpected places. Considering that after the implementation of the mass media, the effect will be measured by the listing advertisement of the nomination search, it was necessary to avoid damage to the brand image due to ad fraud.
◆ Issue 2.: Appropriate allocation of wasteful advertising expenses and reduction of man-hours
As a countermeasure before introducing Spider AF, I visually checked the distribution media for about 5 to 10 minutes at a time.
Specifically, if the CTR (the ratio calculated by dividing the number of clicks by the number of times the ad was displayed) was abnormal, it was recognized as ad fraud and blocked manually.
Since it is easy to assume that the damage caused by ad fraud will increase in proportion to the increase in advertising budget in the future, we decided to introduce Spider AF in consideration of cost effectiveness.
Effect of introducing Spider AF
◆ Solution 1.: Visualize the damage situation with free diagnosis of Spider AF The invalid access rate (unauthorized rate) is about 3% in the free diagnosis of Spider AF. With this damage ratio, the damage amount for 30 days was estimated to be about 230,000 yen.
◆Solution 2: Improving effects after introduction
After introducing Spider AF, the effectiveness improved significantly, and the invalid access rate decreased to 1.4% in the eighth month. You may think that 3% before the introduction is small just by looking at the numbers, but it is a calculation that a huge amount of money will be damaged by ad fraud at the timing when the advertising budget is increasing.

What is ad fraud?
Recently, ad fraud, which is a general term for advertising fraud and advertising fraud, has been reported as a social problem. Typical examples of ad fraud include persistent clicks on ads from
competitors, causing advertising budgets to be spent, and malicious businesses that have an ad distribution side inflate the exposure and results of their own ad distribution. , illegally earning advertising revenue. A representative example of the latter type of malicious operator is Mangamura, which repeatedly uploaded content that violated copyright, which is fresh in our memory. (*2)

About Spider-AF
Spider Labs is a cyber security company from Japan. The main service ad fraud countermeasure tool “Spider AF” is a tool that detects and blocks a certain amount of ad fraud (ad fraud) that always occurs at the time of ad placement. Ad fraud accounts for up to 20% of advertising costs, and because it is difficult to detect, regular inspections are necessary.
