Getting Clickguard was such a relief. I was always worried about the clicks on my PPC not being genuine. With Clickguard I have the assured that I was protected and that my budget was being wasted. The fact that I have so many customizable features makes it even better. Along with their 24/7 support.

Pros
I love how good my conversations are looking. I am confident that I'm getting real clicks and not clicks from these robot apps which means that my apps are also effective.

Cons
I only wish that they had a cheaper alternative for smaller businesses.

Clickguard is such a thorough application. Not only does it detect and block harmful clicks, but it stops worthless clicks that affect your conversions and overall ad performance. Before getting this app, we weren't getting the con versions we were looking for. Never in a millions years did we think that we would have been targeted by click farms or anyone but we were very wrong. I only wish that we had done something sooner to have saved even more money.

Pros
Clickguard is such a powerful app. It instantly blocks the IP addresses or devices that are flagged for fraudulent activities. The app is also always learning and improving based on the vast amount of input signals as well as your customized rules and needs.

Cons
I'd love to see a cheaper subscription option, but it's worth the money.

Before I got the app, like many others running PPC campaigns I had to deal with click fraud issues that wasted so much of our budget. I love Clickguard because it's a real solution. It was a great investment that I was initially not sure about, but now it's an essential part of running my campaigns.

Pros
I initially wanted a cheaper plan but after using the app for some time, it proved to save me a lot of money and I even upgraded my subscription.

Cons
My only concern at first was that the features seemed a little complicated but I figured it out after a while.

For someone like who runs a lot of pay per click ad campaigns, this is an application the provides the best protection for all my click fraud issues. It is constantly monitoring clicks and will alert you if there is any suspicious clicks detected. I absolutely love the interface and the fact that I need to do little to no monitoring. Consider it for all your PPC campaigns.

Pros
I love this app for the simple fact that it helps me to run better campaigns and get even better results. It's easy to use and I have 24/7 support if I need assistance.

Never going back to no protection

Review Source: Capterra

We were running my pay per click ads without protection for a couple of months as we thought that click fraud was not something that we'd have to worry about at any point as we didn't see a reason why anyone would want to target our ads. After getting low performance in our ads and trying various tactics, all that was left was to try Clickguard; best decision we made. We were getting alerts after alerts which actually told us that we did need protection. I was confirmed when we started seeing an increase in the conversions of our ads and a decrease in the amount of money we were spending on clicks.

Pros
I have to commend Clickguard for the 24/7 support they provide. It has saved me numerous amount of times. This is a well designed app that gives you value for your money with real anti-fraud protection. We've been profitable every since getting Clickguard.

Cons
I think it would be nice though to be able to talk to an actual person over the phone. So maybe they could do a phone option.

Get Rid of Bot Clicks Once and For All

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

We were delighted when we were introduced to ClickGUARD. 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. I don't think any competitor can offer such level of security and ease of mind as ClickGUARD. Best Quality/Price ratio in the market

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. Since we started using ClickGuard I can say our company is doing much better. We can see now which ad or promotion are people responding more to.

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.

Clickguard was perfect for us because we run a lot of ads and spend even more on our campaign budgets. We found ourselves pumping more and more money into our PPC ads thinking that this would increase our returns and our conversions but that was not the case. We were, in fact, wasting money by indirectly feeding it to click farms.

Pros
Thanks to Clickguard we are making the most of our pay per click ads. They offer solid protection against low rated ad clicks to manage how much money we spend per click.

Cons
There is nothing that I've found as a disadvantage at this time.

I am very grateful that there is such an app as Clickguard. It has saved me a world of trouble when dealing with pay per click ads. 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. Not to mention how much it threw off our reports. Clickgurad eliminated every single one.

Pros
I can't stop talking about how much this app has saved us. 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.

Trust me that once you get this app and start using it, you will instantly see why it is a necessary app for running all your pay per click ads and you be asking your self why you haven't been using it from the start. I've learned that you get what you pay for and I say that to say, at first we were reluctant because it just seemed like an additional expense but after actually trying it, I could never have been happier with the results we have seen. The app literally pays for itself now and we barely even need to monitor it.

Pros
This product brought back a level of confidence to PPC campaigns that we had lost. Running an ad without it is something that we do not do. You get value for your money by purchasing this app.

Cons
The one and only issue I found with it was during the setup process. It was a bit painstaking but once that was done everything fell into place pretty smoothly.

Clickguard is such a lifesaver when running our PPC ads. This app has put us back in control of our ad campaigns. We are able to set specific goals with their customizable rules. Not only do we get the best protection from unwanted clicks but we also get great realtime reporting and even source identification. Before we came across Clickguard our campaign performance was very low. We'd get clicks but we weren't getting the conversions. That's when we actually realized that we were being attacked by click farms.

Pros
Clickguard gives you the most powerful and secure protection with one of the easiest customizable setup and rules. I also love the fact that Clickguard is fully automated. Just set your goals and leave it to do what it does best.

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

I'm happy to write this review as this app really saved to a lot of time and made me even more money. Studies show that $1 out of every $3 is wasted on bad clicks and that was the case with us. We were hemorrhaging money that we could not afford and we were not seeing the returns we needed to see to be profitable or for the campaign to make sense but after finding Clickguard and installing it we could see that our numbers looked way different and our conversion rates started to steadily increase. We began to make money and be profitable. Clickguard is a product that works and I'll continue to use it.

Pros
Clickguard quickly identifies where bad clicks are coming from more effectively than any app I know. It puts you back in control of your PPC budget and spending. I can't ask for much more.

Cons
My only problem was with the initial setup. They need to figure out how to make it easier for everyone.

All in all, I think Clickguard is a great product; a necessary one to have when running these types of campaigns. If you care about the numbers and not wasting your money then this is the product you need to have. I wish it cost a little less but who am I to complain when the results have proven that the app is so effective. My traffic and my returns have never looked this good before and I've been running these pay per click ads for a while now.

Pros
This app is set up to give you the best out of your campaigns. The realtime monitoring and the auditing and analyzing of every click are exactly what makes Clickguard so powerful; they chat everything and you get realtime alerts as well.

Cons
They should offer support in the major languages so that more people can start using the app.

One of the worst unfortunately and I am not one to leave negative feedback. But I was so disappointed how a company could handle so negatively and poorly my quest to simply want a human to speak to and explain through the jargon. The concept - In theory it all sounds great - but I will never know as they were not accommodating of my request to speak to a human at a critical time within my trial. ClickCease (a competitor) was a stark contrast to this - they went out of their way to help cement in my mind the value I would get from their tool.

Pros
Feature set appeared good - but hard to tell.

Cons
Customer Support Jargon on the site Difficult to setup compared to others. Lack of accuracy in their feature comparisons over competitors.
