ClickMeter: How Many Real Clicks Do Your Links Get?

ClickMeter, the free and unlimited service that monitors web advertising and prevents click fraud

ClickMeter www.clickmeter.com (beta version) is a new and easy-to-use service that helps you monitor any web advertising campaign while immediately and accurately signaling possible fraudulent clicks. ClickMeter is free and unlimited and can be immediately activated from the homepage.

Internet ads are gaining growing popularity in promo. However, some publishers try to sell illicit traffic by using software that simulates clicks on pay-per-click advertising links. With ClickMeter you can check how many REAL CLICKS your links receive from newsletters, websites, direct-mailing campaigns and banners without having to install any software or enter any new source code. Even non-experts can finally measure the results of online promotions.


How does ClickMeter work? Visit www.clickmeter.com and enter the URL (web address or link that you want to monitor) and your e-mail address. You will soon receive an e-mail containing the new link to be used instead of the original one. This way you can check how many clicks that link receives and, above all, be assured of their authenticity. ClickMeter is even able to identify multiple clicks generated by software specifically designed for click fraud or by people who click more than once.

ClickMeter is designed for marketing managers, web masters and individuals who have to keep important data under control as quickly as possible. The Free version of the service allows you to monitor up to 30 links for an unlimited number of clicks free of charge. The Pro version, which costs 15€ per month and includes a 30-day free trial period, offers many other services. A few examples include: visualizing the IP address of the person who clicked and their geographic location, recognizing the operating system used (even mobile devices), the day and time of the click, graphic statistics as well as the letting you export data and run advanced searches. Groups of associated links can be created to develop campaigns and the results can be shared with customers. Other important functions are still being developed.

ClickMeter is an essential tool for those who need dependable and easy to read statistics in real time. For more information www.clickmeter.com.

The ClickMeter Mission:
After more than 10 years of experience in Web Marketing, we have found that there is no simple and safe way to control clicks. Traditional systems require entering special source code on the pages that are being monitored. Pay-per-click advertising campaigns supply reports, but can we trust the advertiser’s reports? Each day we hear about new cases of click fraud. ClickMeter offers a very simple and trustworthy way to measure click quantity and effectiveness.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
