Article Text Adding a div id to your website involves modifying the underlying HTML code of the site. This is a task that needs to be handled by your web team.   Before your developers can add a div id tag, they will need to know the name of the corresponding Zone id of the RTP campaign.        Go to Campaigns page             Edit the existing campaign          Find the Zone id in the In Zone tab of the campaign editor     Your web team will be able to add the div ids if you provide the Zone id and point out the regions of the website that you wish to be used for your campaign. We recommend to provide your developers with a PowerPoint including screenshots of your website, marking the areas that should be used by the campaign.   A developer will be able to add the div ids by editing the HTML and simply including id="Zone_id" into the desired div tags, replacing Zone_id with the given Zone id.

    Overview Add Leads to Static Lists Use Custom Fields Overview Lead records have two primary components – lead attributes and activity logs. Lead attributes are the fields and field values within the lead record. For example, Job Title is a lead attribute. Lead Name is a lead attribute. Activity logs record the actions Marketo or the lead themselves have taken. For example, sending an email to a lead is an activity that would show in the activity log. If the lead opens the email or visits a tracked page, those activities would show in the activity log as well.   Activities in the activity log are only retained for 90 days, 25 months, or 37 if you have purchased the premium data retention option. The official Marketo Data Retention Policy can be found here:  Marketo Activities Data Retention Policy   The main way to store activity data beyond the Data Retention Policy timeframe is to use the Bulk Extract API. There are two other ways you can keep a reference of these activities after the end of the Data Retention period, and they can be referenced within the Marketo UI. This article will show you how that can be done.     Add Leads to Static Lists Static lists will retain lead membership even if the activity of adding the lead to the list has been removed. This will let you have lists dedicated to specific criteria that would otherwise be removed after the data retention time period has been passed.   For example, Smart Campaign membership history is not retained after 25 months. If you are searching for members of a Smart Campaign, but a lead first became a member of the Smart Campaign more than 25 months ago, the search results would not include that lead.   An easy way to work around that is to add your leads to a static list as part of the flow of the campaign. When creating your Smart Campaign, create a new static list with the same corresponding name (makes it easier to identify later). When building the flow of your campaign, add the "Add to List" flow step so that all leads going through the campaign will be logged on the list.         Use Custom Fields Lead attributes and their field values are not affected by the Data Retention Policy. Use Smart Campaigns to populate custom fields with values based on activities your leads take. This will allow you to filter leads by these lead attributes that are not affected by the Data Retention Policy. A side benefit to this is that it is faster to search by lead attributes than by searching through lead activity logs.   Example: This approach can work for many different activities, but let’s use form fill outs as an example.   Let’s say you want to be able to identify leads who have been very active and have filled out more than 5 forms over their lifecycle. You could use the filter “Filled Out Form” with the “Min. Number of Times” constraint set to 5. However, if one of those forms filled out occurred more than 25 months ago, the filter would only be able to access 4 form fill activities in the activity log. Therefore, the lead would not pass the filter.   Instead of using the “Filled Out Form” filter, set up a Smart Campaign to write to custom fields that show you how many forms they’ve filled out, and when the first one was. Here’s how to do it:   1. Create two new custom fields in Marketo, one Score Field, and the second a Date Field.   2. Create a new Smart Campaign   3. Add the trigger “Fills Out Form” set to “is any” to the Campaign Smart List     4. Add these two Flow Steps to the Campaign Flow: Flow Step 1 : “Change Score” Score Field Name: your score field name Change: +1   Flow Step 2 : “Change Data Value” Add Choice to Flow Step Choice 1: If “your score field name”  “is empty” Attribute “your score field name” New Value: {{system.date}} Default Choice: Do Nothing       This campaign will listen for any time a lead fills out a form, add +1 to your score field, and if it’s the very first form they’ve ever filled out, it will log the date of when it was done. If the lead has ever filled out a form in the past, there will already be a date value in the date field, so the flow choice would just skip over it and do nothing.       Results You’ll See: With the original goal of identifying leads who have filled out more than 5 forms you’ll be able to filter for leads that have filled out at least 5 forms. In addition, this campaign will let you search for leads based on when they had filled out their very first form, regardless of how long ago it was. Since it’s stored in a lead field, it’s a lead attribute that is not affected by the Data Retention Policy at all.

New Lead with no email address and no Marketo cookie: If a new lead fills out a Marketo form, their Marketo cookie is created, lead details (including the cookie) will be updated and the Lead-Database and RTP sync process will be initiated. They will then be known to RTP and eligible for 1:1 personalized RTP campaigns. This sync process may take a few minutes so personalization based on lead data will be available from the lead’s next visit.   Lead with email address but no Marketo cookie: When a known lead with no cookie (e.g. a lead from a tradeshow or a list) receives a Marketo email campaign and clicks on a link in the email and arrives to the website, the RTP script runs and a new Marketo cookie is created for them. The creation of the cookie is also sent to the Lead-Database and initiates the RTP sync process for this lead. This sync process may take a few minutes so personalization based on lead data will be available from the lead’s next visit.   Known Lead with email address and Marketo cookie: Any changes to the lead’s data will be synced between the Lead-Database and RTP within 5 minutes interval.

The asset discovery is an event listener that sits on every page and waits for visitors to click links that are considered content assets. Any behavior on web pages is being recorded in the 'session' and this event listener is continuously checking the session to see if anything happened. Once he identifies an event, he checks if this is a click on content asset. By default, assets are defined as any external pages or files (PDF, PPT, PPTX, MP4, OGG, WEBM, YouTube..) but if you configure URL patterns so the engine will look for them as well.   See: Enabling Asset Discovery - Marketo Docs - Marketo User Manual Create a New Asset - Marketo Docs - Marketo User Manual   A few example of how to configure the exclude/include rules for Asset URL Patterns:   Page to include/exclude

Included in this Article:     Overview Why This Happens Two Ways to Fix this Problem Set the campaign as "Not Sticky" Use a dedicated Zone id that exists only on the page(s) to include in the campaign   Overview In the Web Personalization platform, you defined a campaign that included certain pages, but you are seeing the campaign appear on pages that you didn't intend them to appear on. Below, we will describe what might be the issue and how to solve it.     Why This Happens   When defining a segment using the "Specific Pages" parameter, every visitor that views this page will be matched to that segment. Once this happens, the "sticky" campaign will be triggered and will be displayed on every page that includes this Zone id parameter. After the visitor is matched to the segment and the campaign is triggered, the segment is not taken into consideration anymore, so this visitor will keep seeing the campaign every time the Zone id exists on the page.   Two Ways to Fix this Problem   Set the campaign as "Not Sticky"     This will make the campaign show up only once per session, and only when visitors are viewing the specific pages defined in the segment.       Go to the Campaigns page          Edit the existing campaign          Uncheck the box for "Sticky"       Use a dedicated Zone id that exists only on the page(s) to include in the campaign   In Zone campaigns are displayed in a particular zone in a website, designated by the Zone id.          Find "Zone id" in the campaign editor     Then, give the campaign a Zone id corresponding to a unique div ID tag on the desired site(s). This will ensure that once a visitor matches the segment and visited this page once, they will keep seeing the Call To Action (CTA) on this page.

Article Text Included in this article   Overview The Issue The Explanation   Overview Sometimes you'll see an organization show up as "ISP - Anonymous - Proxy" in your visitors list in RTP.   The Issue RTP is a powerful product with an immense database, but not every ISP can be found.  When we receive a visit from an ISP we can't identify, instead of omitting them from our results, we use the name "ISP - Anonymous - Proxy" and set the location to "United States.     The Explanation Pretty much any free Wifi signal you find like at a library or coffee shop will be listed as an Internet Service Provider (ISP). The admins for that ISP service can configure their network in any way they would like, including whether they allow for identification of their network. If there is no data provided, there's nothing for RTP or any other service to gather. In that case, that's when you'd see the "ISP - Anonymous - Proxy" listing for a visitor in RTP.

Clicking on a visitor allows you to view their viewing information in the Customer Journey section, including: Links clicked Time stamp of each link click Total visit duration     Visit duration is calculated by subtracting the first time stamp from the last time stamp. In other words: visit duration = last time stamp - first time stamp. See the image above for an example of this calculation.   00:00 Visit Duration Single page viewed Both RTP and Google Analytics rely on clicks to determine visit duration. This means that if a visitor only views a single page, neither RTP or GA can track when the visitor leaves the page, since there is only the initial time stamp without a time stamp to mark the exit from the page. The visit duration for viewers that didn't view more than one page during the session is recorded at 00:00 since it cannot be calculated.   Session timed out Another way that a visit duration can be recorded as 00:00 is if a visitor's session times out. By default, a session will end after 15 minutes of inactivity. For example, if a visitor stays on a page without making any clicks for 25 minutes (perhaps they are reading an article or watching a long video), that session will time out and be recorded with a duration of 00:00. If the visitor finally makes a click after the 25 minutes of inactivity, a new session will begin. In Google Analytics, the session timeout can be customized to be longer or shorter than the default 15 minutes.

Article Text Included in this Article: Overview Email Reports not Being Sent Check Report Preferences Fewer Leads than Expected Check Personal Regions Settings Cross-Domain Tracking Data Includes Own Company   Overview   All RTP users should be receiving a monthly and quarterly Summary Report.     This email evaluates the performance of campaigns and recommended content and compares it to that of the previous month or quarter. Performance is based on click count and number of visitors converted to known leads, whether direct or assisted. Direct leads are visitors that clicked on a campaign or a piece of recommended content and filled out a form in the same visit. Assisted leads are visitors that clicked on a campaign or a piece of recommended content and filled out a form in a separate visit, up to 6 months in the future.   If you would like to unsubscribe from the Summary Report s, see this article. Otherwise, several potential issues with Summary Reports are outlined below along with their potential solutions.   Email Reports not Being Sent   Check Spam Folder As a first step, try checking your spam folder. It's certainly possible that the email reports did not make it past your email client's spam filters.   Check Report Preferences In your RTP settings, you will be able to enable or disable email reports. If you are expecting reports but not receiving them, it is possible the reports were disabled in your preferences. To check:        Go to User Settings          Check the Email Report settings at the bottom of the page     Make sure to check the box for Summary Report and whether you would like a monthly or quarterly (or both) report. This page is also where you will be able to manage any other RTP email reports you wish to be subscribed to.     Fewer Leads than Expected   Check Personal Regions Settings Another page to check is the Personal Regions page. This page will allow you to display data in the Web Personalization platform and send email reports only related to the specified regions.          In User Settings, click the Edit Regions button         This should take you to the Set Personal Regions page:         On this page, you will want to verify that any region you may have leads in is checked (marked as included in your Personal Regions). If regions that you have leads in are not included, the Web Personalization platform will not display data from that region or include it in the email reports. This means that if you have leads that are not included in your Personal Regions, their activity will not be included in Summary Reports.   Cross-Domain Tracking If the visitor is shown a recommendation on one domain, but the recommended content is hosted on a different domain, two different sessions will be recorded. This divides the visit into two sessions: The click on the link to the recommended content, on the first domain The content itself and the form fill-out, on the second domain   Because the click and the form fill are in two different sessions, the lead will be recorded as an Assisted Lead rather than a Direct Lead. This applies for both top-level domains (www.firstdomain.com and www.seconddomain.com) and sub-domains (pages.domain.com and www.domain.com/new_page). Cross-domain tracking will ultimately skew your metrics towards more Assisted Leads. To reduce the impact of this limitation, keep content recommendation and the content itself within the same domain when possible.     Data Includes Own Company   Clicks and visits from your own company can significantly skew your summary data, as your own employees may be visiting the company website on a daily basis. Because of this, it is important to exclude your own company from the organizations contributing to your Web Personalization data. To do this:        Go to your Account Settings          Scroll to the bottom of the page to find the Exclude IPs field     In order to exclude your company's traffic from your data and reports, you will need to know the outbound IP address of your company's network. You should be able to obtain this information from your company's IT department. Once you have your company's outbound IP address, enter it into the Exclude IPs field and press
