What are click farms? A shadowy internet industry is booming in China

Click farms are deemed illegal in China and have always been under the risk of being detected and blocked by app stores like Apple. Here’s how they work: Click farms use an automated process hacks into the normal App Store Optimization (ASO) practice, which requires developers to use certain keywords in descriptions and attract users by being a useful product, and are programmed to promote apps by imitating as a real user, who searches for certain keywords, clicks on the app, downloads them, and even write positive reviews.
