Bob Allen's Click Fraud Campaign




Google advertisers whose ads appear on Bob Allen's blog are victims of a click fraud ring. How does it work?

Those little boxes with "Ads by Google" are called "Pay-per-Click" advertising. Website owners that meet Google's site guidelines place their websites that show and update the ads. Every time someone clicks on one of the rotating, contextual ads, the advertisers pay and the site owner and Google get paid.


Website owners sign an agreement in which they agree not to click on their own ads or ask anyone else to click on their ads, since that is defrauding the advertisers with false clicks.
The advertisers sign up with Google ("AdSense" program) and agree to pay every time someone clicks on the link in their ad. They set a budget and Google's system automatically places their ads on sites using a "contextual" criteria.

If a company sells an anti-rape product, Google will place it on sites containing the word "rape." Advertisers are assured their name and products will only be associated with sites that meet their anti-hate, non-criminal, anti-violence policies, and they'll do all they can to assure the "clicks" they pay for are bona fide prospects, not the site owner or his pals fraudulently inflating his clicks and, in essence, stealing from the advertiser.

As these examples show, Bob and his supporters actively instuct people to support them by clicking on his ads, even though they do not intend to buy. This is called "Click Fraud."

Additionally, Bob Allen's site openly promotes hate and violence against women, police officers, individuals and public officials... All in violation of Google's ad policies.

If you advertise with Google, contact them and insist that none of your ads appear on http://bobstruth.blogspot.com/. While you're at it, ask them why they don't enforce their own policies against fraud, hate, profanity and violence.

SEE WHO'S GETTING CHEATED.

Robin, I can't find the first comment that you have a screenshot of anywhere, the one that says "SUPPORT THIS SITE!", et.al.

Can you provide a link to it?

Why did you edit these screen-shots and why did you cut out the line with the URL?
I cannot find these comments on Bob Allen's blog.

Tell me Counselor what do you think about the Law Suit by the Duke Lacrosse players? And the fact that a Nurse with the Duke University Medical Center engaged in perjury, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and falsifying Police reports? Any comment? Or are your idiotic ramblings reserved for Bob Allen?

You are a fraud. Your audience has bailed on you. This web site is a scam. And you have been proven to be a fraud and a liar.

What about the two Kurdish Women arrested in Iran and charged as Terrorists who are Feminists? No concerns for those Women? You are the typical Amoral Coward. Attacking Men in a safe Republic under the protection of Uncle Sam.

Luke, Yohan, Anonymouse:
As usual, you ask the wrong questions and miss the point.
The point, once again, is that to be an activist - by definition - you need to take action. You need to create change.
To create change, you set a clear acheivable goal.
You create a strategy to accomplish that goal.
Then you implement that plan with a relentless and unwavering focus.
Defeat and failure are not an option. I don't quit until I reach the goal I set.
Can you say the same for Bob Allen, Masculist Man? Have they ever set a goal? Stuck with it? Accomplished it?
Tell me who is the liar and the fraud, Anonymouse: Those who say they are activists yet are inactive, or me, who is clear about what I believe and, agree or not, you have to admit I stick with it until its done.
If you doubt it, why not go click on the Google ads on The World According to Bob.

Note to Ms. Steele:

You claim to be a lawyer. Did any of your courses in law school teach you the meaning of “libel”?

BCUnderdog said...

Defamation is the publications or broadcast of a comment that injures someone's reputation among a respectable portion of society. In order to prove defamation, the plaintiff must prove six things:

1) The content of the libelous statement must be defamatory. It must diminish the reputation of the plaintiff in the eyes of a representative, respectable section of society.

2) The information must be published or uttered to at least one other person besides the plaintiff.

3) The identity of the plaintiff in relation to the libelous statement must be clear, though it is not necessary that it mention the plaintiff's name.

4) The plaintiff has the burden of proving the information is false.

5) The plaintiff must show the defendant is at fault. There are two levels of fault depending on whether the plaintiff is a public or private figure. If he/she is a public official, all-purpose public figure or limited purpose public figure, actual malice on the part of the defendant must be proved. Actual malice is defined as knowingly publishing/broadcasting false information or showing a reckless disregard for the truth or falsity of the statement. If the plaintiff is a private person, he/she only needs to prove negligence on the part of the defendant. Negligence is defined as failing to exercise reasonable care.

6) There must be provable harm.

Bob is a limited purpose public figure. And judging from the screenshots, he'll have a hard time proving Robin's statements about him are untrue...and an even harder time proving actual malice.

Best of luck to you, Bob. You will need it if you plan to get litigious.

Yohan said...

And judging from the screenshots, he'll have a hard time proving Robin's statements about him are untrue...and an even harder time proving actual malice.

The question is if these screenshots are a fake or authentic.
These screenshots do not show an URL, are incomplete and these pages and comments cannot be found at Bob's website.

Uh...no.

The only question I asked was for you to provide a link to the comment in the first screenshot in this post.

That's all.

That's not a "wrong question", nor is it "missing the point".

Anonymous said...

BCUnderdog. Most of the stuff Steele is saying about Bob is completely fictitious, including fictitious (made up) quotes. Proving that it's all lies won't be difficult for Bob at all.

Most Internet libel is waived off because its difficult to show damages. But in Steele's case, her interference with Bob's ad revenue is demonstrable damage.

BCUnderdog said...

It will be interesting to see if Robin is willing to post the requested links...stuff can be deleted though, can't it?

I am rooting for you, Robin. After reading some of the outrageous stuff on Bob's blog, I felt a little less faith in humanity.

Yohan said...

@ bcunderdog:

I was asking for a complete screen-shot, not for the link itself.
I was asking why this screen-shot was edited and why important information was cut out.
Is this screen-shot a fake?
-----
If you find hate-sites so much disturbing, why not signing a petition against an existing all-out men-hate site?

http://www.gopetition.com/online/15745/sign.html

This men-hating website is on-line on the internet, no fake, check it out yourself.

Or do you promote 'double-standard' in regard of your 'faith in humanity' while assisting Robin Steele, the self-appointed 'Men's Rights Activist?

It is not "fraud" for Bob to promote his web site on other sites. That is called "advertising" and is the same as the ads on his site.

It is not "fraud" for friends of Bob to pormote his site and encourage their readers to visit his site and his advertisers.

It is no more fraud for Bob's friends to suggest people visit Bob's site than it is for Robin Steel to post links to Bob's site -- which she does a lot. In face, nobody else has driven as much traffic to Bob's site as Robin Steele. She is his biggest supporter on the web.

There is no "fraud" going on. The AdSense contract was never violated. Ms. Robin Steele is lying about it all. If she has cost Bob money from cancelled ads it is Libel and she can be successfully sued to compensate Bob for his losses.

Rather than sue Steele, Bob will probably encourage her to keep going because she manages to increase his fame and increase the total traffic to his site (and his advertisers) more than anyone else on the Internet.

BCUnderdog said...

Yohan, I'll check out that site you want to close down. If it's as sick and violent as Bob's, I'll sign the petition.

BCUnderdog said...

Well, I read everything on there and I won't be signing the petition. There wasn't really anything all that offensive there...not compared with Bob's statements that 5-year-old children enjoy being raped. Guys like Bob are the reason for miss_andrist's blog to begin with from what I can see.

Yohan said...

@bcunderdog: Bob's statements that 5-year-old children enjoy being rape

Where is this exactly written? Link please.

Robin Steele said...

Anonymouse said: It is not "fraud" for friends of Bob to pormote his site and encourage their readers to visit his site and his advertisers.

Google makes it clear that it is a violation for site owners to encourage or suggest that visitors click on his ads. Bob agreed to that in the Terms of Service. He also blatantly asked for clicks. That's one of the reasons they banned him.

There is no "fraud" going on. The AdSense contract was never violated. Ms. Robin Steele is lying about it all. If she has cost Bob money from cancelled ads it is Libel and she can be successfully sued to compensate Bob for his losses.

Additionally, Bob Allen signed an agreement that his site did not or would not promote hate or advocate violence toward individuals or members of a group. This was clearly a fraudulent misrepresentation.

Anon., for something to be libel it must be untrue and known to be untrue. I made no claim that was not factual and backed up with specific citations.

Yohan On my homepage there are clear links to my posts on Bob's contentions, with quotes and links to his pages, that women and young girl's enjoy being raped, that it makes them feel "special" because they were "chosen," and that they frequently brag about their rapist throughout their life.

Yohan: Why would you want the screenshot and not the link? Wouldn't the link allow you to better determine the truth? Of course the screenshot shows my desktop and files... which is why it's edited.

BCUnderdog, I am in the legal profession and don't make allegations without proof and documentation. The question is: once I provide the proof they ask for, they won't acknowledge it. They'll ignore it or rant about something else. They're not interested in the truth... just attacking the straw man Femzilla oppressor they blame their problems on. It's easier to play victim than to face the fact that they are, in fact, Men's Rights Inactivists.

As you requested, Yohan, here's the link: http://bobstruth.blogspot.com/2006/09/jonbenet-never-did-get-laid.html

It's Bob Allen's sensitive, heartwarming post titled JonBenet Never Did Get Laid:

...sex almost never hurts any female regardless of circumstances and usually provides physical pleasure and emotional satisfaction. Even when taken by force she understands that a man has chosen her and risked his life perhaps for her female charms. She is likely going to brag about "my rapist" for years and years, because it’s a story about how powerful and desirable she was as a female. Unfortunately for little JonBenet, according to the published reports her young c*nt was not large enough to accommodate the man's organ so he ended up cuming in her pants instead of in her c*nt....

I'm really looking forward to hearing you stand up for Bob Allen. Please, remind me why you defend these views? See what he has to say about the little girl and her mother killed on 9-11:
http://womanofsteele.blogspot.com/2007/11/women-little-girls-like-getting-raped.html
I'm sure the Feminists appreciate the supposed MRM embracing this psychopath as one of their own.

Yohan said...

Until recently, I did not even know, that such a blog called 'Bob Allen' does exist.

Robin Steele makes a lot of propaganda for (or against) Bob Allen - but negative propaganda is also propaganda ....

I would never check out Bob Allen's website without Robin Steele's comments.

About the link, this article related to JonBenet (I also did not know anything about her, this is a local US-crime out of many) is over 1 year old, is of rather poor taste, but to claim, the writer promotes rape and assault is out of context. Also the follow-up comments indicate otherwise.

As I said, the article is tasteless, and I would never read it without Robin Steele's guidance.

The SCUM manifesto, a feminist guideline by Solanas is also tasteless, it is calling to send all males regardless their age to the gas-chambers and to kill them.

While Bob Allen is a widely unknown person with a strange tasteless blog, the SCUM manifesto is famous feminist literature.

As long as feminist literature like the SCUM manifesto is allowed to exist even in universities as a feminist guideline, what shall the MRA's do about Bob Allen's blog?

Remove Solanas hateful garbage-writings quickly, and such little websites like Bob Allen will disappear by themselves.

As long as feminists are allowed openly to call for the elimination of all men, what kind of response do you expect from some few radical outsiders who are claiming to protect men's rights?

Robin Steele said...

Yohan: Your response proves my point, perfectly, about the lack of credibility, moral conviction and cahones of you MRIs.

A true MRA response would go like this:

Bob Allen is a disturbed individual and clearly mentally ill. We care about you, Bob, and urge you to seek professional help.

Bob Allen's contentions that women or girls enjoy rape, that rape is seen as a compliment to them, and his references to the tragically murdered JonBenet Ramsey are hurtful, delusional, harmful and repulsive to all decent human beings. The anti-woman and pro-violence sentiments of Bob Allen & The World According to Bob website are in no way shared by true Men's Rights Activists or the Men's Rights Movement. In fact, any perceived association with hatespeech or misogyny distorts our true message and does serious damage to the cause of Men's Rights Advocacy. For this reason, Bob Allen is a threat to the MRM, and we urge all MRAs to delete all links promoting The World According to Bob as an MRA site, and to restrict his access to MRA forums and discussion boards until such time as he renounces his hateful and violent views, and removes the offending messages that endanger the well-being of our daughters, grandaughters, wives, sisters, girlfriends and mothers."

Robin Steele said...

Yohan: You are a classic. Debate clubs and law schools should study your amazing ability to create logical fallacies and self-contradicting statements with machine-gun fire speed.

You make the point that by mentioning Bob Allen, I'm promoting him. Yet you rail against the SCUM Manifesto which I never heard of it

You say the JonBenet article is a year old - and therefore irrelevant - but the SCUM thing was written in 1968 - 40 years ago - and is extremely relevant?

In teaching boys about why rape is beneficial to women, Bob Allen writes: Even when taken by force she understands that a man has chosen her and risked his life perhaps for her female charms. She is likely going to brag about "my rapist" for years and years...
Yohan's reaction: "...to claim, the writer promotes rape and assault is out of context."

In "JonBenet Never Did Get Laid" Bob writes that the tragedy wasn't the brutal molestation and strangulation of a little girl, but that there was no vaginal penetration for her to enjoy. Bob writes: Unfortunately for little JonBenet... her young c*nt was not large enough to accommodate the man's organ so he ended up cuming in her pants instead of in her c*nt....
Yohan's manly response: It "is of rather poor taste."

Yohan writes: As long as feminist literature like the SCUM manifesto is allowed to exist even in universities as a feminist guideline, what shall the MRA's do about Bob Allen's blog?

Remove Solanas hateful garbage-writings quickly, and such little websites like Bob Allen will disappear by themselves.


So some obscure extremist rantings by some manhater 40 years ago is a defense for people who advocate violence against and rape of young children today? Your logic is amazing.

The cowardice and lack of moral conviction of you MRIs is slowly but clearly becoming exposed. Those who are truly interested in improving the rights of men will soon see that it's their credibility, their hope of a movement and the cause of Men's rights that is getting raped here.
