Comscore Continues Digital Measurement Innovation with New US Patent for Fraudulent Traffic Detection
or more accurate audience measurement
Comscore, a trusted partner for planning, transacting and evaluating media across platforms, announced that the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted its patent on “Fraudulent Traffic Detection and Estimation”.
This patent covers Comscore’s process of detecting fraudulent or invalid traffic (IVT) based on known fraudulent traffic in a control group. The technology identifies characteristics from the control group, which are then used to identify IVT in a set of measured traffic, for example views of an online ad, or page visits to a web site. By removing the invalid traffic and adjusting click-through rates, Comscore is able to provide advertisers with more accurate and reliable measurement of the performance of advertising campaigns. Those seeking further information can reference US Pat. No. 10,832,280.

Its accreditation was extended to include vCE® in mobile application environments in 2017. The underlying detection capabilities are applied throughout Comscore’s digital product portfolio.
