Can traffic generating scripts make site traffic measures meaningless?
While surfing on the web looking for some analytics technical information I came across this article: blogs.yu.edu/cpa/2012/06/22/experimenting-on-how-to-generate-fake-web-traffic-to-artificially-increase-analytics-metrics/
That blog post seems to be a quick & dirty test but It seems to be quite easy to improve the idea and forge more realistic traffic patterns.
Having so many experts in this blog I wondering I somebody can help me understand, how this kind of fake traffic is being currently filtered out from i.e. paid online advertising????
