    Verify Content Discovery is Working

     

    Once you've made changes the Content Discovery setup, visit any page in the Create Content Patterns section. If the Content Discovery is working, visiting the page should increase the click count and capture you as the visitor. To check if this worked the way that it should, after visiting the website you should:

     

         Go to the Visitors page under Analytics

    Use the search tool in the visitor database and search for the URL that you visited. It should return a list of visits to that site with your most recent visit at the top. If the Content Discovery is working correctly, the visitor database should have tracked your visit and it should appear among the list.

    Check to make sure the time stamp matches the time you visited the page. The time stamp can be found under the Visitor Information section after clicking on the visitor.
