China Has A Secret $50 Billion Dollar Click Farm Problem

When clicks are for sale — everyone buys. And millions of phones are utilized.
Click farms are illegal in China and have always been but that’s not deterring millions of people. Here’s how they work: Click farms use an automated process hacks into the normal App Store Optimization (ASO) practice, which requires developers to use certain keywords in descriptions and attract users by being a useful product, and are programmed to promote apps by imitating as a real user, who searches for certain keywords, clicks on the app, downloads them, and even write positive reviews.

      @Bill Au I was asking the original commenter about what he meant by stealing on a video about click farming. I didn’t mean to argue about your statement.

    • The Ball says:

      Replace ‘steal’ to ‘commit fraud’ at you’re 100% right

    • Bill Au says:

      The Ball talk about 2008 right?

      @Bill Au the CCP has been creeping on Africa for like 10 years now and no one seemed to notice…

      They colonized almost the whole continent by now, there’s no turning back.

    Murphy’s law.

    Even Chinese government are sponsoring it, called “50 cent army” so to promote positive communist values by spread of disinformation on all major web platforms to sway public opinions around the world.

    Even though it is publicly banned in China to access FB, TY, Twitter & etc.

  • Boring Manager says:

    Why americans call it a china’s problem?))

  • Boring Manager says:

    can anyone please explain why would Thai police hit a click farm? I understand facebook might call it a fraud, but is it actually illegal? When I play a mobile game and watch a commercial without any intention to buy that stuff, the only difference between what I do and they do is scale

  • hotchilli grower says:

    These farm forget to pay for geoblocking their locations! Maybe they can’t afford that kind of expense.
