Bot Clicks

Greetings All!

We recently sent our monthly email to a group of clients on Jan 17th. We came across this unusual behavior, there were a large number of bot clicks registered 2 - 3 hours later from the email being delivered (except the hidden link we have on the email template ). We raised it with Marketo Support & we were told that we can't control the behavior of third party email scanners (some are even advanced enough to only click on some links or wait a certain period of time before clicking links). Has anyone faced similar issue? Is there a way to over come this?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Sathish,

The steps mentioned in the correct answer in this thread - Spam filters registering clicks? , should be helpful.

Best Always,

Re: Bot Clicks

Hey Sathish Kumar​! Karan Hari​ is spot on with that thread. Another alternative is to use a combination of filters: Email was delivered + Visited web page: [web page linked to in email] - as mentioned in this community post referencing a blog that Courtney Grimes​ wrote. Hope that helps!
