I do not have specific repro steps for this particular situation, as this is the first and only time (so far) that this has ever happened to me, and it happened randomly.

I would expect a much lower click count and a much lower CTR (below 100% rather than above 1000%, for sure). I run ads almost every day, and I’ve never seen this happen.
I just ran a basic skyscraper advertisement for my game for 350 Robux the other day and later I check to see that there have been 362,550 clicks even though there were only 27,160 impressions (leading to an abnormal CTR). I am not sure if this is due to some sort of wild botting, or what the particular issue could be.

This happened to me as well earlier this year. Both are the same ad, but one of them has almost 20% CTR which is impossible under normal circumstances. Ads were skyscraper and ran under one of my groups.
Yeah I’m thinking it must only be some users, otherwise surely it would have been reported by now?
Alot of money being spent on ads that are doing nothing.
I wonder if it still counts as a click if people click an ad that takes them to an invalid game page.
