Bot Fight Mode and Invalid Ad Traffic

I use Google AdSense to display ads on my website. Recently, I received a notification from Google that they are assessing my account due to “invalid traffic concerns.” I run a legitimate site with no shady traffic or clicking tactics. I’ve read that there are bad bots that can prompt this problem by clicking/viewing ads.

I was considering using another service to protect against this problem, but then I discovered Cloudflare’s Bot Fight Mode.

Can Bot Fight Mode help protect against this type of bot ad fraud? Perhaps I don’t need to use the other service?

I don’t think Bot Fight Mode is enough to protect this kind of attack, you need Bot Management instead - but it’s an Enterprise feature.

Thanks for the information. That’s a shame if true. That feature would be a real help to me. I wonder if they’d ever consider it as an optional add on?
