Your affiliate program explicitly states that brand bidding is strictly prohibited. However, making your affiliates aware of the terms and conditions may not be enough since riding on your brand’s popularity to make more money with less effort is too great of an opportunity to pass up.
To ensure total compliance it is necessary to monitor each and every one of your affiliates which you would have to do manually, our affiliate monitoring service will help you out. The problem is that keeping tabs on hundreds of affiliates is time-consuming and exhausting, not to mention that some use black-hat tactics like dayparting, cloaking and GEO-targeting in order to avoid detection. Now affiliate compliance becomes even more challenging. And this is where we step in.
BluePear is a Search Ad Monitoring software that catches non-compliant affiliates bidding on your branded terms, provides their competing ad copy,URLs and landing pages while saving all the redirect links as well as their publisher ID.
