Brand bidding is against our Program Policies and something we take very seriously.
If a Skimlinks Publisher is bidding on your brand terms, please first confirm that Skimlinks is involved in the relationship by clicking on the merchant URL from the Publisher's site and identifying Skimlinks' affiliate tracking link when you go from the Publisher site to the merchant site. You can do this using extensions such as Redirect Path.
Once confirmed that Skimlinks is adding an affiliate link, please reach out to our fantastic Account Specialist team, select "Network Quality" then "Report Publisher Brand Bidding" and provide the following information:
- Ad title
- Keywords used
- Screenshot of the violation
- Most recent date you've seen the brand bidding
Our team will reach out to the relevant Publisher within 1 business day and keep you updated on any progress.
