We have reason to believe a competitor is committing click fraud

Recommended Posts

I've tried looking at our metrics on the squarespace site. Is there a way to download the complete history of ip addresses for a website? I can narrow down my search based on device being used because they may be using a VPN. I took over as webmaster and the previous guy was fired.  We know he is pissed at the owner of the company and the owner thinks he is committing click fraud in retaliation.

Try going to Analytics -> Activity Log.

Do you have Google Analytics set up on the website?

Are they hitting your Google Ads constantly? Is that how the click fraud is happening?

I do have analytics setup. The owner said our business should be dead in the month of July and we just spent $3600 on Google Ads.

You can set spending limits for Google Ads, I would recommend doing that urgently if all these clicks are not generating sales. Also speak to Google Ads support asap.
