Wow, thats crazy. I've never heard of that before. Can they give you some more details on it? How do they know it was a bot? Was you getting a huge CTR (click through rate)?

Is that traffic from one app only ? Is this your first month with that big amount of impressions or you had it for years ?

It's the 21% CTR, anything over about 3% usually means it's unnatural.

I think is due the amount of impressions.. for what I understood, you had other apps before and suddenly the impressions started to grow with your main traffic generator app... Maybe try to explain them what happened and send them screenshots of where that traffic is coming from. I guess that if it comes from a bot or software, the source of downloads must be the same?

@XdebugX Regarding the CTR above 3% ... should I start to worry? I'm having 15.20% and I never used any kind of bot, software or others in this account. It would be great if you could explain a little bit about this 3% (please!)

here's the screenshot of my last 30 days: http://screencast.com/t/saOyJE9B2j

It's just a statistical fact of most banner / interstitial ads, that they historically have less than 3% CTR. Unless your using bots, or doing something that may be causing an unusual amount of accidental clicks it just doesn't normally go higher than that. The ad companies know this and they will generally look into any accounts with unusual CTR, as this is the leading indicator to them of fraud or improper use of ads. It depends a lot on the ad network too, but I would not want to have over 5% CTR with anyone. Maybe with some of the new ad types, but not with traditional banners and interstitials.

Thanks for the reply XdebugX. 
I hope Applovin does not suspend my account too because of my CTR... cause I'm not using any bot or doind any kind of cheat. Maybe the CTR is high because of the videos too? I'm showing videos and interstitials...

darshanamss333 .. any news from them?

oihh hope also they dont ban my account have about 15% ctr making 6-15k downloads a day all for my apps
-I dont think its about ctr because some of my apps have more than 17% and one of them have more than 30%(but make only 1$ a day)  im sure they track also how many downloads you made a day or month and see what happend.
And one of my best games have 21% ctr one a week ok its have about 100k impression .
And my game is over 1 year with applovin.
But all my game generate about 12% ctr

Edit:
Casino games have the most ctr about 30% i saw from other and they are dont ban.

They're very similar to chartboost: rewarded video, video, etc.

The eCPM is have there is not so high as in Chartboost ( 100$ eCPM avg) but I guess is because of the filtering options I make in Chartboost.

Hi asktolik,



So filtering will also reduce the number of impressions. So we also need to show high amount of impressions. I mean one of my app deliver like 40 impressions daily on average and sometime user installs and I make $2 - $7 and it makes my eCPM somewhere between $30 - $80 but it doesn't matter because the revenue is also important as well as eCPM.

 

darshanamss333 our applovin eCPM is also > $0.70. I think it's pretty average.

Probably Apple App Store, the eCPM is higher.

Yes, filtering reduces the number of impressions, but I don't see any negative things for this.. why would you want to have 1,000 or more impressions if none is giving any revenue? 
I prefer having 10 impressions but of big advertisers (best ads, lead to more clicks and of course installs [smile] )
