If you need ad fraud protection, this is the tool to choose.

2019-05-21

The experience with ClickGUARD was good. It’s an ad protection tool that protects ads well, which is exactly what you’d hope for when you start using it.

Pros

Timely reporting and notifications. The list can go on.

Cons

I like the fact that you can dive very deeply into analytics and protection rules, but I recognize it can be a bit too much for some users.

Clickguard is a must-have app

2019-12-16

I'm all about saving money where I can, so it was an annoyance when these anonymous or fraud click things would eat up the budget. I heard about Clickguard and what it said it could do but I couldn't understand how it is that they could actually analyze a click. I reluctantly gave it a try and to my surprise, it was work, and very well at that. At this point, I think it's pointless to run an ad without it.

Pros

You are given access to so much information and reports that really help you with tailoring your campaigns.

Cons

I don't have major dislikes, only minor layout preferences.

Effective and efficient system that is able to protect you with minimum efforts. It’s not “magic” but it really works!

Pros

There are many great features that make lead management a breeze.

Cons

It might seem hard to believe but I have no cons to report at this moment...

Stay in control of your ads

2020-01-03

Here is why I'm writing this. I too like many others have had to watch hard earned, company budget be wasted as a result to none click, bad click or any other name they come by. I've heard of other companies ask google for assistant and none. In doing some research I came across a number of apps like Clickguard, but not only did Clickguard outshine the other but it came highly recommended by colleagues in similar lines of businesses. After actually giving this app a try, the only thing I can say is that I now have full control of my ads and its performance and that is thanks to Clickguard. It is the most effective app of its kind out there right now.

Pros

I had seen the difference in my campaign performance since integrating Clickguard.

Cons

I tried getting some assistance over the holiday and found it very difficult. I guess that is something Clickguard can look into so that users can feel fully supported.

The most powerful PPC protection out there

2020-10-07

We are able to set specific goals with their customizable rules.

Pros

Clickguard gives you the most powerful and secure protection with one of the easiest customizable setup and rules.

Cons

The only disadvantage I can note at this time is that I wished they had support methods outside of the chat support.

Awesome product

2019-12-04

After Clickguard the number of clicks dropped, but the RoA went up.

Pros

Verry good threat detection system. This app really does what it says.

Cons

Nothing worth mentioning yet. The cons I see are mostly because I'm too demanding.

We found that we were actually saving money

2019-12-19

It also constantly monitors and alerts you of any suspicious or anonymous clicks.

Pros

It has realtime monitoring features that instantly alerts you of any bad clicks.

Cons

They need to invest in phone support and not just chat support. I know that the direction most businesses are going in but its always good to be able to talk to an actual person.

Much better than the competition.

2019-12-23

I'm not a big talker but I must say that Clickguard has become such an essential part of my Pay Per Click campaigns, I don't see us running another campaign being run without it.

Pros

I like how customizable the rules are there are a few features that I find to be essential, like Realtime Click Audit and the fact that Clickguard collects data to learn and adapt to before protect your campaigns.

Cons

I have no dislike except that the initial setup was a bit challenging but once completed, the app works like a charm.

Get Rid of Bot Clicks Once and For All

2021-02-17

We were facing a lot of issues in our ad-clicks. but since then, We can now monitor our ads and campaigns without worrying about fraud bot clicks.

Pros

ClickGuard helped us get rid of a lot of bot clicks on our ads. we promote our company through various social media platform and we couldn't keep track of the analytics because of the fraudulent clicks on our google ads. our charts were off by a lot.

Cons

Setting up might be a bit complex for someone who is not good with computers but eventually you get the hang of it. Other than that, there's nothing I don't like so far. Everything works as intended and like a charm. We haven't encountered any problem of any sort.

The leading PPC protection on the market.

2020-10-10

A key feature for us that sets this app apart from the rest is its in-depth reporting capability and what we are able to do with the information.

Pros

The best and most extensive protection out there which means that you will be saving significantly on your campaigns. The app will also learn to optimize the campaign performance based on past click behaviours.

Cons

The app can come across a little intimidating at first but once you understand each feature you'll be able to move past that.

Great system powered by wonderful support

2018-10-16

I feel like I've found a good tool that is able to provide me the necessary data not only to protect myself and my budget, but also to understand who and why someone is clicking on my ads on purpose!

Pros

Quick. The interface is easy to operate and navigate.

Cons

The only thing I can think about is perhaps slightly more advanced reports.

Top of the line app and support

2020-01-14

Having to pay for the clicks on your campaigns initially sounded good to me until we were targeted by those click farm robots that would annoyingly run up our bill and we still had to pay for them.

Pros

It is so easy to integrate and the support team is to be commended as well because they have assisted me many a time when I had no idea what I was doing.

Cons

Not that the app isn't worth it but I'd really appreciate a lower costing option or plan for small businesses.

Only real solution in the market

2020-01-09

After running PPC campaigns for a while and realizing that there are what I believe are called click farms targeting our adds and giving us none clicks, we tried to resolve and prevent it internally.

Pros

It has features for day and a level of customizability that suits our business.

Cons

I honestly have no negatives at this time, but if I am to mention anything it might be that I've noticed that this app works best in large click numbers.

It was drastically different and that also showed me how effective Clickguard was in protecting my PPC campaigns. This experience makes me not want to take the chance and runs ads without Clickguard ever again.

Pros

It's easy to use and provides real results

Cons

I didn't have that great of an experience which the customer support but the issue was solved just the same.

Numerous benefits to using Clickguard

2020-10-07

The ads that we ran before integrating Clickguard seemed to never do well and we had no answers as to why until we learned about fraudulent click activities and that's actually when we learned about Clickguard as well.

Pros

You don't just get pay per click protection but this app helps you to target leads that are more promising. Not only that but it will help you to improve your profitability. I haven't come across an app that is as extensive as this one.

Cons

Setting up the app could be a little simpler. I'm not the most technical person but the process could be simplified a little more.

Very impressive app

2020-02-21

Over time I grew to find that we really started to depend heavily on Clickguard as more and more we became convinced that this is one of the most vital apps out there to support all PPC ad campaigns. I'm happy that we gave it a try after all because not we don't run ads without it.

Pros

This is a well built and well designed product that's worth every penny.

Cons

The only drawback I've come across has to do with their support team. I think they need a Spanish support line in addition to the English support they have.

Totally worth the buy!

2020-01-27

Anonymous clicks are such a pain because of the false data that they give and the fact that they were actually wasting our budget on essentially empty clicks.

Pros

It saves you money on your campaign that would otherwise be wasted on empty clicks and the beautiful thing is that it needs very little monitoring.

Cons

The only issue that I can think about is the constant feature updates that we get but I don't think that's a real issue.

It does what they say it does

2019-05-08

ClickGUARD gives the customization options and flexibility every marketer should have when deciding how best to protect their PPC budgets. And then, when you tell it what to do, it does it well.

Pros

Reporting is great, custom notifications too.

Cons

It's a professional-grade tool so it takes a little time to figure it all out, but that's not a big con.

Never run your PPC ads without Clickguard

2019-12-16

Coming from no protection at all to being able to not only get realtime click protection but being able to go as far as having the threat source identified and classified as well as realtime notifications; what more can I ask for?

Pros

If you want to know how effective this application is, check out the real-time click activity analysis feature.

Cons

If there is something to dislike I'd say that the support team is a little robotic but I think that's expected when it comes to technical people.

An effective protector

2019-02-05

Clickguard acts as a watchful guardian over a ppc campaign, and people have no idea they even need something to protect their campaigns until they start using tools like Clickguard.

Pros

It shows where the clicks are coming from, which lets you figure out easily if someone’s activity is hurting your ppc efforts.

Cons

I don’t have any complaints about the products.

Better clicks, better campaigns

2019-12-07

It is constantly monitoring clicks and will alert you if there is any suspicious clicks detected.

Pros

I love this app for the simple fact that it helps me to run better campaigns and get even better results.

Cons

My only issue is that I wish they had a lower price option but it is worth every penny and I'd purchase it 100 times over.

Finally real protection

2020-02-14

Now think of the amount of money that we were losing because of click fraud activities and android robots.

Pros

I get absolute and complete control of my ads again and I don't have to worry about anything like empathy clicks again. The feature really assures me that I have to best protection out there and I'm able to see exactly what is being done through their reporting system.

Cons

The only bad thing I can think of is that so many features to go through can be a little overwhelming.

2019-12-18

Had I not found Clickguard I'd have probably stopped doing these campaigns. Clickguard is now so vital in running my campaigns.

Pros

The features give you so much control and power over your campaigns. You'll finally be able to see where your money is going with the full insight and realtime data you get from Clickguard.

Cons

It takes a little while longer to get support during that time.

The perfect solution for click fraud issues.

2020-01-28

We knew this because of the constant alerts we were getting from the software which even made aware of how bad it really was.

Pros

This is a necessary software to have if you are running ad campaigns and you would like to get protection from click fraud and click robots that will skew your click rates that will still come out of your budget.

Cons

I would usually be able to easily point out areas where an app can improve but it this case all I can say is maybe add phone support.
