Hosting.com Launches PPC Fraud Study

Hosting.com, a provider of hosting solutions, announced today that they are launching a new study that will take a hard look at PPC click-fraud. The study will last from six to twelve months and will be conducted by Hosting.com’s lab division.

“We believe the media has exaggerated the problem for some search engines and greatly underreported the problem for others, and the majority of solutions on the marketplace that currently exist are myopic in scope,” says Darren King, president and CEO of Hosting.com.

The company decided to launch the study after they too became victims of click-fraud.
