When the RTP tag is used on multiple domains, it will pull in all available content regardless of which domain it's on. For some marketers, this can be a problem.     The Problem With the standard Content Recommendation Engine, this is an expected behavior. You can't limit the the recommendations from one domain to stop showing up on other domains. The content being recommended will show across all domains where the RTP tag is in use.     The Solution There are two types of Content Recommendation Engine. The Rich Media Content Recommendation Engine will let you get around this problem.   The standard Content Recommendation Engine gives the bar along the bottom of the web page with the content recommendations in it. This recommendation engine is expected to have content extending across all domains where your RTP tag is in use.   The Rich Media Content Recommendation Engine will allow you to target which content you want to have in which places by categorizing the content and specifying which categories each web page should pull from.     Rich Media Content Recommendation Engine Info For directions on how to utilize the Rich Media Content Recommendation Engine, please see: Enabling the Rich Media Recommendation Engine - Marketo Docs - Product Docs

Issue You created a Smart List, but did not define the filters (example: "Member of Smart List" with no Smart List named) and are wondering if this will cause no leads to show up in the results.     Solution If you create a Smart List and you do not define any filters, this will cause all leads in your database or leads visible in the partition and workspace to appear in your results. This can create problem if you have nested Smart Lists. For example, if you have a Smart List with the filter "Member of Smart List = Lead not in" with Smart List A selected, and Smart List A has no filter, this logic will cause you exclude all leads in your database.

Article Text Included in this article: Navigate to the Clickstream module How is Visit Duration Caluclated 00:00 Visit Duration Single page viewed Session timed out   Navigate to the Clickstream module        Go to the Visitors page        Click on a visitor to find the Clickstream module in the bottom right     How is Visit Duration Caluclated When a visitor visits a website being tracked by an RTP campaign, it records clicks in the Clickstream module in the RTP platform. 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.

Issue You may notice that there may be a block in SFDC that stops syncing unsubscribes from Marketo to SFDC. After fixing the block in SFDC the new unsubscribes will sync as expected.  Here is how to get all the unsubscribes that happened before this fix to sync into SFDC. Solution You would need to set up a campaign to reset the field value. Smart list: Unsubscribed = true Flow: Change data value  "unsubscribed" -> False Change data value  "unsubscribed" -> True   That would take everyone who is currently unsubscribed, switch to false and then back to true. That should cause the true value to sync up to SFDC for all of those records. However , make sure you do this at a time when you are absolutely positive there are no email campaigns going out.

Article Text Image: Step Flow for Predictive Content for Web and Email What are Content URL Patterns? This post explains the first part of the flow image above: the discovery and tracking of content for the Predictive Content app. During the setup phase, the marketer defines their content URL patterns (See Create Content Patterns for more information), in order for Marketo to discover HTML content (e.g., blog posts, press release, news articles) across a domain. Setting URL patterns allows Marketo to auto-discover content when a web visitor clicks on the HTML web page within the content pattern. This content is then added to the All Content page in Predictive Content. Setting up URL Patterns Go to User Profile > Content Settings > URL Patterns. (For more information, see the Getting Started doc: Getting Started with Predictive Content) Image: URL Patterns Page   Rules for Content URL Patterns Use of a wildcard (*) is permitted throughout the expression. e.g., domain.com/*  or  domain.com/*blog* It's recommended to use /* at end of the expression to continue pattern discovery. e.g., domain.com/blog/* to discover all your blog posts in the blog folder Content Patterns are not case sensitive. URL Pattern: "domain.com/Blog/*" will discover all HTML pages on "domain.com/Blog" and "domain.com/blog" Parameters in URLs are not discovered. Auto-content discovery removes the URL parameters in order to avoid discovering the same content URL multiple time with different parameters.   Examples of Content URL Patterns   Domain URL Pattern Type Result domain.com blog/* Pattern Discovers all your content that matches the pattern domain.com/blog/. Example: domain.com/blog/5-top-tricks domain.com/blog/2017/new-year-solutions domain.com/Blog/3-best-recipes domain.com article/2017/* Pattern Discovers all your content that matches the pattern domain.com/article/2017/ Example: domain.com/article/2017/5-top-tricks domain.com *datasheets* Contains Discovers any URL that contains the word "datasheets" Example: domain.com/datasheets/5-top-tricks domain.com/blog/5-top-datasheets domain.com press-release Exact Only one HTML page is discovered: Example: domain.com/press-release domain.com   Exact If the domain is selected and the URL expression left empty, the URL pattern will discover only the home page Example: domain.com sub.domain.com blog/* Pattern Discovers all your html pages in the folder blog only on the sub domain sub.domain.com

Select "Campaigns - Viewed" from the "Select field to add" drop down.   3. Select "is not" and insert the Campaign ID.     Where to find the Campaign ID The Campaign ID is the identifier used by RTP to specify which Campaign you are referencing.

Click the plus sign to add a second field to the filter. Choose "Campaigns - Viewed" as the second field, same as the first.   5. Select OR from the AND/OR field. 6. Select "is empty" for the second Campaigns Viewed filter option. S     Finally please make sure that the campaign is not marked as "Sticky", as this will make it appear every time.   You're all set!

Issue A lead ran through a Smart Campaign and should have been sent a push notification but there is no activity of this happening even though the lead is a member of the campaign.     Solution Assuming other leads are receiving the push notification (which suggests the app itself is not to blame) the first thing to check is the lead record itself. If the lead is marked as Marketing Suspended or Blacklisted, this will prevent the record from receiving a push notification. Mark these fields as "False" and send the record through the campaign again, the lead should now be sent the push notification.   Who This Solution Applies To Customers using Marketo's mobile app integration

Summary You often need to utilise the wait step in your campaign flow but wonder if '1 day' or '24 hours' reflect on a different time when a record hit the wait step and when they were released from this flow step.

The value '1 day' will wait and release a lead after 24 hours from the moment a lead hit the wait step.   Environment Production/Sandbox
