LAS VEGAS - April 28, 2023 - PRLog -- As the world becomes more connected and the digital landscape continues to evolve, online marketing and advertising have become essential for businesses to reach and engage consumers. However, with the rise of more sophisticated tactics, including cookie stuffing, a growing concern exists about the impact on user privacy and security.

Considering this, panelists at the Marketing 2.0 Conference on December 19-21, 2022, at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, USA, discussed the risks and solutions associated with cookie stuffing and related scams, providing businesses and advertisers with insights and recommendations to protect their customers and maintain the integrity of their campaigns.

Scammers have used pop-ups or deceptive tactics to force users to click on ads, resulting in false leads and fraudulent commissions. In this case, cookie stuffing generates false clicks on ads and claims payment for fake referrals, impersonating legit portals.

According to one of the panelists on stage, scammers also use bot traffic to generate fake clicks or impressions on ads. Bots can be programmed to mimic human behavior, making it difficult for businesses to distinguish between legit clicks and fraudulent ones.

Cookie stuffing also facilitates affiliate link scams where fraudsters intercept legit links and replace them with their own, often to promote fake or counterfeit products or services. By doing so, they can earn commissions or drive traffic to their websites at the expense of the legitimate affiliate marketer.

Experts at global marketing events have highlighted the emergence of negative user experience by bombarding users with excessive ads, pop-ups, and redirects. This can make it difficult for users to navigate websites and find the necessary information, leading to frustration and decreased user engagement.

Cookie stuffing can have a significant impact on user data privacy. By surreptitiously inserting cookies into a user's browser, advertisers and marketers can track their browsing behavior and collect a wide range of personal information, including their search history, online purchases, and demographic data. This information can be used for targeted advertising and marketing campaigns but can also be shared with third-party advertisers and data brokers without the user's consent.

Staying on top of such trends, especially concerning data privacy, can be key. With the help of industry veterans and professionals, Marketing 2.0 Conference is all set to help you stay up to date on the latest trends and challenges in the industry, including scam prevention methods, through its upcoming editions in Dubai and the USA in 2023!
