What is Biased Attribution?
Biased attribution is a term used to describe a situation in which a measurement platform has interest (financial or other) in the success of a particular set of advertising or affiliate networks. A conflict of interests that may jeopardize a company’s business operations.
Why Is This Important:
An attribution provider offering a paid partnership program or solutions for ad networks or affiliate networks could include fraud perpetrators, as well as their own DMP. While this could be a great additional source of income, advertisers should worry as to where the interest of the attribution provider lies.
A truly unbiased provider will offer no such partnerships and solutions in order to maintain its business compass.
