Why does our referring URL = http://{{Lead.Original Referrer}}

Any ideas what is setup improperly to cause our Referring URL to be set to http://{{Lead.Original Referrer}}?

Hi Michael,

Do you know on which page this is captured ?

Hi Greg-

I am getting this data on a number of different pages... Our request a demo page as well as some other resource download pages.

It seems to me as if someone was trying to use the token to set the value, while the token itself should be set. Like a loop.

I would look at one of these leads, and observe the activity log in detail, to check that it does not come from another of your Marketo assets (an email or another landing page, or one page on your web site).

It means that one of your assets linking to these pages is using the token in it's meta title.

Where are you seeing this?  Can you add a screenshot?

So this is a lead field?  Could you check one of those records in Marketo and see what their creating activity is?  Since its a lead field I'd think that there was some trigger campaign that's writing this value to the referring URL field.

So do you think the form just has this data as a hidden field and is passing that value over?

Either that or a trigger campaign is writing that it.  If you drill down into the Fill Out Form activity it will show you the values that were submitted through it.

I'm not seeing it under the program tokens or the campaign flow...
