Their digital advertising activity between October 2016 and January 2017 was analyzed, with the concentration of activity in November and December.

Measurements of fraud in the global marketplace are derived from White Ops’s platform customers with calibration from ANA study participant data where needed for granularity and financial loss estimation.

In the report, you will find:

  • Baseline measurements of Sophisticated Invalid Traffic (SIVT), which does not include traffic which was blocked in a pre-bid fashion, social media, or direct marketing
