View Full Version : Anti-fraud tips for a banner exchange.

12-13-2008, 08:37 PM

I have been working on a free banner exchange site. I know, there are bunches out there and its been done a million times, etc., but I'm building one from scratch with the features I would like and haven't found in the existing ones.

I know a big reason alot of these types of sites fail is because they get a bunch of people cheating the system, and it results in poor results for the honest members of the program and it just goes downhill. (I assume)

I'm trying to cover all the common cheating methods and try and program in detections for such activities, and would like any suggestions on how people may abuse this type of service?

So far, I've identified some of the following:

- Multiple instances of code, banner stacking, etc.
- Loading banners in hidden frames
- Auto refreshing pages

Any other things to look out for or suggestions for a site of this type?
