Re: You don't get rich by being honest
Same problem with inflated metrics for Google Analytics. Our company ad has been shown all over our employees visited web properties for many months, even when they used private mobiles or work from iPads from their home. Interesting count of metrics. AdSense scripts were popping up exactly the same ad all the time, in various locations, even when I was on my vacation in tropics in the middle of an ocean, several times per day. Very annoying. Google thinks our employees are main customers of a fairly complex piece of B2B enterprise products we sell. We counted thousands of times overstatement in metrics, being a small size company with 100 or so people. Employees reported that each was shown our own ad repeatedly and everywhere for several months, tens or hundreds of time. Imagine metrics inflation for a bigger corporate company. It's a gold mine for web monopolies, this type of advertisement metrics counting. In my opinion could be called a fraud, if proved. Today monopolies themselves are counting these metrics. One who counts his own metrics, goes all the way to the bank laughing at naive customers. We stopped using AdWords since then.
