When I upload a PDF as a downloadable asset in Design Studio, if someone clicks on the URL for the PDF that was generated by Marketo, and they scroll through the PDF, is that considered / captured as a web page visit in Marketo?
No, not even a single PDF visit (let alone scroll) is a Visit Web Page.
Which is why you should always Stop using direct download links (unless you want to lose tracking!)
That's unfortunate!! Thank you Sanford Whiteman! Just read your blog post, slick stuff, I hope I can actually put it into practice --I get the idea of a redirector etc., but I got lost when I saw code. I'll go sleep on it and read it again tomorrow.
Hi @SanfordWhiteman ,
One question: If we use the redirect links in emails, any chance of a click by an email spam filter (false clicks) triggering a visit webpage as a result? I'm assuming the Munchkin code won't be triggered on the redirecting page but just wanted to confirm.
Mail scanners can trigger Visit Web Page, yes.
Thank you for your response!
