Thank you very much for registering with Spider AF 🌷

What you can do with Spider AF Trial

With Spider AF Trial, you can measure how many fraudulent ad clicks occur on any site page.

Although fraudulent ad clicks are usually invisible, take this opportunity to check how much fraudulent activity is happening 🙏

Here, we have compiled Information and links to pages that provide the setup procedures for Spider AF Trial (Free Fraud Detection) and how to use the Spider AF Dashboard after setup.

It is recommended to check in the order listed, but feel free to explore any page as needed.

Steps to Start Spider AF Trial

To start the Spider AF trial, the following settings are required.

Please check the procedure for each link.

If you signed up and created an account through, go here for instructions for onboarding -

If an account was created for you from another party, or if you no longer have access to the onboarding wizard, follow the instructions below.

  1. Trial Configuration

    1. Setup

      Spider AF retrieves signals from the traffic on web properties that have the Spider AF Tag installed. Using these signals, Spider AF categorizes traffic into valid and invalid categories, provides more visibility into the traffic that is coming onto the web property, and allows the user to configure Spider AF to block invalid traffic from coming back.

      Step 1a. Set up the tag

      The Spider AF tags that you use are for your account only. After you sign up, you can access your tags. If you ever need to manage or find your tag again, it can be found within the dashboard. Found in the image below.

      You can simply copy the tag from the tracker page and paste the code on your website's header.

      Sample tag 1: All pages

      You can find your initial tag Under Integrate Spider AF Tracker in the onboarding screens. The tag looks like the sample below, but contains your unique tracker ID.

      var sptrk=function(){var o="",w="__spd",e=(new Date).getTime();function c(n){var t=document.createElement("script");t.async=!0,t.src=n,document.head.appendChild(t)}window[w]||(window[w]={}),window[w].d||(window[w].d=[]),c(o+"u");var s=/^([a-z0-9]{8})-([a-z0-9]{2})$/,u=!1;return function(){var n=arguments;if(window[w].d.push(n),"config"==n[0]&&!u&&!window[w].a){u=!0;var t=n[1],a=t.match(s),i=a[1],d=a[2];if(!i||!d)throw"invalid id: "+t;var r=Math.random().toString(36).substring(2,15);c(o+"t/"+i+"?"+("a="+e+"&o="+r))}}}();

      sptrk('config', '##TrackerID##');

      Step 1b. GTM set up

      If there is some constraints where you cannot install the tag directly into the header of a website, you can add the Spider AF tags for all pages and conversion pages using Google Tag Manager

      See these pages to set up Spider AF tags with Google Tag Manager:

      Step 2. Connect to the Google Ads API

      To complete the setup, the user must Connect an Ad Account.

      Click Google Ads, then click Give permissions.

      The Google login page opens. Select your account and log in if needed.

      Click Allow.

      After you provide permission, you return to the Spider AF page.

      Select your Google Ads account. Click Proceed with selected account to complete the connection.

      If you run ads on more than one ad account, click Add a new account to add additional accounts. If you're finished, click Proceed to Dashboard.
