"Do nothing"

What do you like best?

Support via chat very efficient and kind

What do you dislike?

I tried the protection service for 7 months on 12 campaigns and 4 domains

On all it did not give any benefit.

The number of clicks that clickguard gave as "protecetd" was always higher than the number of clicks that adwords invoiced, no reimbursement was ever made by google, but above all, the cost per conversion had no noticeable change.

I would therefore say that, like Clickcease, which I tried for 6 months, even clickcease does not give any sensitive results.

If the protection that is given for blocked IPs because they do not make conversions, or something else, the cost you pay for the service does not compensate for the "maybe" fraudulent clicks blocked.

I checked with adwords support for some IP blocked by ClickGuard to verify if google billed or not, the clicks coming from the ip identified as fraudulent and blocked, as suspicious.

Google has confirmed that they have not been billed.

Conclusion the protection can only be done by setting some parameters on adwords such as filtering zones and rules for the times of clicks, for now nothing else seems to give results.

I hope in the future these services will become functional in some way.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it for a while, but I don't think it will give results. I would be very happy to change my mind!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I really don't know! nothing detectable!

"Makes pay-per-click work better, if you’re willing to invest time into it"

What do you like best?

I like being able to see results. I like that with ClickGuard, you block a placement, and then your ads don’t appear there for the duration of the block. I like the control it gives over the advertising budget.

What do you dislike?

It gives you too much options. It’s not that easy to make the most out of a thorough protection suite if you have to try out a lot of combinations to get to what you want. And it surely is possible to get there, it’s just that the number of options ClickGuard gives will make it time-consuming.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The real reason to use these kinds of tools is because, if they work well, they let you achieve the same results with your ads for less money, or to achieve better results for the same money. ClickGuard can bring you to the point where you’re able to make the choice.

"Proctection to our ads"

What do you like best?

It's wonderful job to protect your ads. The level of controls we were able to get with it is not found anywhere else. With their help we were able to easily block a lot of the fraudulent clicks that were attacking our campaigns on AdWords. With the current rise of fake news and paid clicks, this was one the best things we could have found to help improve our marketing strategies and still be on budget. And one of the best things, if that ClickGuard gives you a real time idea of what is happening with your clicks.

What do you dislike?

One of the big issues I've had with these types of software in the past is that they all tell you they are doing something but you can't really see or control what they are doing. But it doesn't happen here. A bit complicated to learn at first, but this is something that is really common with most people when you are using a new thing. It should take a few hours to configure everything the exactly way you want, but once it's done and you passed this, you are in for an amazing experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's really worth it, speacially if you are on a budget;

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were having problem with spam and pay clicks on our ads. Now we have a better control and the ads have better results.Before using ClickGUARD, we really had problems with lost money on useless clicks. This software had really helped us, the overall experience was really good! I strongly recommend it!

"A tool for blocking bad clicks, works with google ads"

What do you like best?

It’s a tool to use with Google Ads when there’s a lot of bad activity around PPC ads. I like that it expands on the functionalities that are already in Google Ads, and that it acts like an additional layer of protection and access control.

What do you dislike?

I didn’t dislike anything in particular. There were a couple of hiccups here and there, but nothing that influenced how ClickGUARD worked, and certainly nothing the people from support weren’t able to clarify.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ClickGUARD can do multiple things and solve multiple problems caused by bad clicks. Overall, it should help you make the most out of your advertising budget, and it’s worked well in that department.

"It lets you know what’s going on"

What do you like best?

Clickguard does most things well, but the notification settings and rules were what I liked about it the most. That, and the fact that it has incredible reporting capabilities.

What do you dislike?

It’s an ad fraud protection tool, so you can’t expect flashy design or anything like that. It’s not that Clickguard doesn’t look good, I’d just like it a bit more streamlined.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Clickguard helps its users to stay on top of what’s going on with their ads. It helps determine the causes behind problems with the ads, and if blocking can help, then it’s able to help you.

"Best solution and support on the market"

What do you like best?

Getting to know how to use it is really easy & it is very clear that the team behind it is very knowledgeable. The best part about Clickguard is being able to sit back and not have to worry anymore about fraudulent clicks from competitors

What do you dislike?

While the basic features are easy, some of the advanced features are extremely powerful, but do take time to understand.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Pretty good support. Better than expected

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our AdWords account saw a huge decrease in cost per acquisition spending a month over the month & I no longer have to spend 5-10 hours a week in AdWords monitoring clicks due to protection we’re now getting.

"Works very well with Google Ads"

What do you like best?

What I like the best about ClickGUARD is how many different ways it lets you set up what kind of traffic you get. It sounds like you’re just blocking different IPs, devices, or placements, but in reality, this tool lets you manage ads in a very fine way.

What do you dislike?

There’s not that much to dislike. I find it very easy to use, even though it takes some time to set up well. But then again, you need to invest time into customizing the solution if you want it to fit your needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem is ad fraud and low quality traffic. And the benefits you get are the ability to analyze clicks and find traffic you should block.

"A blessing for everybody using AdWords"

What do you like best?

Easy to set up and affordable prices. I can add, edit or remove my rules very quickly and it’s definitely great user experience

What do you dislike?

I wish the trial period lasted longer. I haven’t had time to study some advanced protection rules before my subscription started. This may be the issue for me not knowing the subject to well. I needed more time to understand what click fraud actually is

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They completely solved our problem. We did not have an idea of who is clicking on our ads

"Exactly what our client needed"

What do you like best?

A hardest part of any protection is to know and be aware of the types of things to look for. When you have enough insight to understand how these activities are occurring, it’s easier to block against the fraudsters. Click Guard gives you that insight and helps you with their analytics and top notch support.

What do you dislike?

We really can’t find any cons, but the UI could use some improvements

Recommendations to others considering the product:

With so many features there’s a steep learning curve, but it’s well worth the time investment because it works better than anything else out there.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A client had problem where an ex partner turned competitor was clicking on their ads to drain their budget. Clickguard helped us track, identify the device and network in order to stop the clicks.

"A great solution"

What do you like best?

I like their interface. It’s really user friendly and helps me to easier understand what is happening with my marketing campaigns on AdWords

What do you dislike?

Some advanced rules are hard to understand because of all the option that they provide

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I strongly recommend it, it has a free trial, so that's definitely a plus!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We didn’t know why our budget would get depleted so fast and so quick until we started using their system. We wish we know that they existed when we started advertising on Google.

Not any that I can mention at this time.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Great fraud protection tool"

What do you like best?

You get protected from the moment you subscribe, with automated rules already created based on their knowledge regarding click fraud. Ability to tweak those rules to best suit your needs.

What do you dislike?

I don’t have any real dislikes but since it seems you want me to put something here I would say that the process of getting started is a little confusing for some more advanced rules

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fraud hurts all businesses. What benefit we got: detection of abnormal/fraudulent behaviours and ability to block those behaviours

"A decent tool for ad protection"

What do you like best?

It’s great that clickguard lets you block IP ranges based on specific patterns and behaviors. That’s how you catch fraudsters and other types of unwanted traffic.

What do you dislike?

Setting clickguard up takes some effort, but it’s well worth it. Other than that, the software has no important cons.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ad protection tools can be used to prevent fraud and protect ads from bad traffic. Clickguard does it, and it does it reasonably well.

"Click Fraud Resolution"

What do you like best?

There are a lot of guidelines and tutorials to help anyone use the service regardless of past experience, which makes it so easy to use

What do you dislike?

Only thing I can think of, is it needs an iOS app

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Make sure you understand your budget and follow the trends once the protection is turned on. You get the same amount of conversions with less budget spent. I was actually amazed by this!

What do you like best?

What do you dislike?

They have already implemented a few suggestions our team had. They respond quickly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The number of invalid clicks we are able to prevent, that is definitely the biggest business problem it has solved so far for us

"Solid to the core!"

What do you like best?

Easy to set up, yet robust at an affordable price. We were super impressed with the number features and how well they respond once in action.

What do you dislike?

A mobile app would be nice to monitor on-the-go but it's not a deal-breaker.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well, all I can say is that now we know who is clicking on our ads... Who know how much money we lost before using ClickGuard on fraudulent clicks...

"Regular user of their service"

What do you like best?

Functionality. You can easily filter what you want to focus on, to better understand what types of ruleset would work best for you.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that's a Con for me would be that filters are not saved when you navigate to the next page and want to return.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Good system that provides you with more than you need set of features. Would recommend this product to any company.

"An extra layer of protection for my marketing budget"

What do you like best?

The thing I liked the most was that you can use ClickGUARD with display ads. It’s next to impossible to find good protection and control tools for placements, and ClickGUARD nails it. I also like the fact that ClickGUARD lets users set up Slack notifications when certain things happen.

What do you dislike?

I think ClickGUARD is a good piece of software and there’s nothing I disliked about it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ClickGUARD was supposed to help us achieve a simple goal: help us determine which placements are a waste of ad money, and then block them. It did both things well.
