Blasting News selects comScore to protect advertisers from invalid trafficRecognised for Continued Commitment to Quality and Transparent Measurement Solutions in the Digital Advertising Market

LONDON, UK, 16th January 2017 - Blasting News, one of the largest global social news publishers, today announced that they have selected comScore validated Campaign Essentials (vCE ) to identify and remove fraudulent traffic in order to give Blasting News clients increased confidence that their ads have the opportunity to make an impact with a real and validated audience.

The invalid traffic plague is a serious issue on the web. According to a 2015 report by the IAB invalid traffic caused advertisers to lose no less than $4.2 billion each year.

Blasting News has integrated since its inception anti-bot technologies across its audience measurement systems, in order to create a safe place for brands and advertisers. However, invalid traffic generators are getting more sophisticated by the day, which is one of the reasons comScorehas been selected to track reader flows and filter any invalid traffic activity on the Blasting News website.

In November 2016, comScore was granted accreditation by the Media Rating Council (MRC) for Sophisticated Invalid Traffic (SIVT*) detection and filtration of desktop and mobile web traffic. comScore is the first company to offer both content and campaign measurement leveraging MRC-accredited SIVT filtration, providing the market with consistent and filtered metrics for the planning, buying, selling, and evaluation of digital advertising.

If advertising isn't reaching a real person, that's a real problem. We want to have 100% real human traffic, with no compromise. From now on, comScore will measure all Blasting News traffic and provide actionable data to help us take immediate action. That means that advertisers can be confident that they are only paying for human audiences on their campaigns, thanks to the metrics comScore provides said Andrea Manfredi, CEO of Blasting News.

Timur Yarnall, SVP Advertising, comScore, added: Sophisticated IVT (SIVT) detection is extremely important due to how complex and fast-changing fraud techniques have become. comScore is committed to help our clients defend their business against these advanced techniques of malpractice and provide a safe, high quality environment for digital advertising.

To learn more about comScore vCE, please visit http://www.comscore.com/validated-Campaign-Essentials or contact us.

* The MRC's definition of Sophisticated IVT includes traffic identified through advanced analytics, multipoint corroboration, human intervention-such as hijacked devices, ad tags, or creative; adware; malware; misappropriated content.
