BrandVudu

The scientists at BrandVudu have changed everything you know about brand protection! We’ve developed a new way to detect harmful PPC brand violations involving unlimited keywords, instant access to results, no set-up, and no cost during our initial launch.

BrandVudu was started by a team of search marketing veterans with experience helping online marketers at high-end affiliate network and ad agencies.

Our previous clients told us their frustrations with the status-quo of online brand protection: creating keyword lists, entering them into monitoring software, and violations would be found. Each step was plagued by excess time, confusion, inefficiency, and cost.

Out of this chaos was born BrandVudu, a simple, organized approach to brand protection where you get what you need, when you need it, and in the format you need.Give us a test! Enter a brand at BrandVudu.com to see violations for URL hijackers, ad copy bidders, and brand/brand+ bidders.
