Issue Discrepancy between Marketo webinar atttendance and webinar provider attendence report Webex Marketo Event Program synced to Webex webinar Final attendance report from Webex, not preliminary
Solution Compare Webex report with Marketo Program members list to determine which leads are involved. Check to see if the leads involved have the same email address but used different names to register/attend.
Workaround: Upload Webex final report to a static list and use the list to update the program attendance. ROOT CAUSE: Webex issues two reports, a preliminary when the webinar is finished and a final report approx. 12 hours later, which may have updated attendance info. Marketo Engage uses the preliminary report to set the attended status in the program and does not update when the final report is released.

How many total named accounts can I have within Marketo ABM?
There is no limit from a product perspective.
How many account lists can be created?
How many Named Accounts can be added to the Account List?
Is Marketo ABM Workspace specific?
No. Named Accounts are visible to all the Workspaces. But Lead Partition rules are still honored. Which means you can see a named account in multiple Workspaces but depending on the Lead Partition rules, you can only see leads belonging to the corresponding Workspace within that named account.
Which lead attributes are used for Lead-to-Account Matching?
It is based on 3 lead attributes: Email Domain, IP Address and Company Name. We convert Email Domain and IP address to the Company Names and match all 3 to identify strong and weak matches.
How are strong lead matches to Named Accounts determined?
When the Company Name matches 3 out of 3, or 2 out of 3 times, then we consider this a strong match.
How are weak lead matches to Named Accounts determined?
When the Company Name matches only 1 out of 3 times, then we consider this a weak match.
How can you make Marketo ABM automatically associate leads to Named Accounts?
When you create a Named Account from any of the Discover grids, Marketo creates rules which then going forward are used to do automatic association of leads from the company to Named Accounts.
Do I see all the CRM accounts in the Discover CRM grid?
Yes, all the CRM accounts that are synced in Marketo show up here
Does the number of CRM accounts match the number of CRM accounts shown in Discover CRM grid?
Not necessarily. Marketo ABM does light de-duplication by CRM account names. First, we remove company suffixes before matching to company names. (Ex: Co, Corp, Corporation, Gmbh, Inc, Incorporated, LLC, LLP, LP, Ltd, PA, PC, PLC, PLLC). Second, we merge companies or CRM accounts in Marketo with duplicate names (not case sensitive)
What does the Discover Marketo Companies grid show?
This grid shows all the CRM accounts as well as Marketo Companies that we found in the Marketo lead database.
What happens if I delete Named Accounts?
None of the leads associated with the Named Accounts will be deleted. You can always go back to the Discover Companies grid and re-create the Named Account.
Can I merge duplicate companies or CRM accounts manually in Marketo?
Yes. You can use Discover Marketo Companies to do that.
How is the week-over-week engagement over time chart determined and how frequently it is calculated?
We take daily account scores and show the maximum account score for that week. This chart is calculated every 8 hours.
How is the week-over-week pipeline chart determined and how frequently it is calculated?
We add the total sum for the 'Amount' of all opportunities except closed-won and closed-lost. We show opportunity amount on last day of the week. This chart is calculated every 24 hours.
How is the week-over-week revenue chart determined and how frequently it is calculated?
We add the total sum of the 'Amount' of all the closed-won opportunities on a weekly basis. This chart is calculated every 24 hours.
Does Marketo ABM backfill data for engagement over time charts?
No. Engagement is tracked from the time Named Accounts are created. We don't backfill.
How far back can I see engagement over time, pipeline and revenue charts?
How far back are email and web activities calculated for?
How is pipeline determined?
Pipeline is calculated as a sum total of 'Amount' for all open opportunities except closed-won and closed-lost in CRM accounts.
How frequently are account scores calculated?
Every 30 minutes.
How is Currency calculated?
Currency is the Subscription currency. Marketo ABM does not covert the currency.
Does Marketo ABM support Account hierarchy?
Not in this current version, but it is planned for future versions.

You are trying to add the Person Notes field to a Marketo form but the field does not seem to be available to drag into the form editor.
Remember, all fields will pre-populate with data from the CRM system. Person Notes is a dangerous field to use in a form because sales people will often put text in there that they never intend the lead to see. We removed it form the form editor for this reason.
You can, if needed, add another field in your CRM and it will be available to use in Forms.

Processing feedback from the blacklists is a manual process for Marketo’s Privacy team. While we try to get the reports out to you on a daily basis, sometimes we get back logged and notifications may not go out the same day that you triggered the blacklist.
But not to worry: most blacklists are dynamic, meaning that they resolve themselves after a given time period or when email statistics improve. Typically blacklist issues are resolved after 24 hours, so chances are you are not still being blacklisted.
Still, you need to complete the blacklist remediation program to identify the source of the problem and ensure that this doesn’t happen again. While most blacklist issues resolve themselves, they can have a noticeable impact on deliverability. Furthermore, being blacklisted is an indication that you have a problematic data source in your lists that could lead to even bigger deliverability problems.
For a quick run down of the blacklists that our customers run into trouble with the most, visit our Top Blacklists article.

No, unfortunately we are unable to tell you what the spam trap address is. We don’t even know it ourselves! Spam trap addresses are proprietary to the blacklists that own them. Anti-spam professionals use spam trap addresses to track unsolicited emails. If a spam trap is known by the offending sender, the sender could simply remove the spam trap address from their lists and never actually address the data problem that caused that spam trap address to be included in their lists to begin with.
Instead of asking what the spam trap address is, try to identify the source of the trap address and eliminate bad data sources from your mailing lists. You should be able to identify the email campaign that caused the blacklist issue, so you should start with those lists. To narrow it down and identify the problematic data source, you should consider the following:
Have you recently added any new leads or new lead sources? What is the source of these leads? Any purchased or appended email addresses should be removed, because these data sources are often the source of newly introduced spamtraps. In addition, using purchased or appended email addresses for mailing is a violation of Marketo’s Email Use and Anti-Spam Policy. Have you added any older leads that have not been mailed to recently? Some email providers will turn an email address into a spam trap after a year of inactivity. If you have a list of addresses that has not been mailed to in a year or more, this list should be removed. Does your system use any custom fields to indicate customer status, event attendance, recent contact with your sales team, or other forms of engagement? If so, take advantage of this and isolate the inactive or non-responsive segments of your database using all of the activity data you have available. Is there anything about this specific mailing that makes it different compared to your previous email campaigns? Did you send any other mail on the same day? If so, you should compare the recipient lists. Think you have narrowed in on the problem? Check out our guide to blacklist remediation to find out what to do with that bad list and complete the remediation program.

Common Look Up mechanisms Common Modifiers
Too Many Mechanisms Character String Too Long Null Records in the SPF Record Repetitive Records in the SPF Record - Void Lookups Validation Tools
Common Look Up mechanisms
An A Record must ALWAYS contain IP address (map host to IP) CNAME (Alias) must contain hostnames. No IPs here NS an MX records must contain host names. No IPs allowed. MX records (for mail servers) should contain hostnames NOT IPs.
Too Many Mechanisms
Section 10.1, "Processing Limits" of the SPF RFC 4408 specifies the following in regards to DNS lookups:
SPF implementations MUST limit the number of mechanisms and modifiers that do DNS lookups to at most 10 per SPF check, including any lookups caused by the use of the "include" mechanism or the "redirect" modifier. If this number is exceeded during a check, a PermError MUST be returned. The "include", "a", "mx", "ptr", and "exists" mechanisms as well as the "redirect" modifier do count against this limit. The "all", "ip4", and "ip6" mechanisms do not require DNS lookups and therefore do not count against this limit. The "exp" modifier does not count against this limit because the DNS lookup to fetch the explanation string occurs after the SPF record has been evaluated.
This limit is in place to prevent SPF lookups from being a useful avenue for Denial of Service attacks.
Using an example SPF record as an example to illustrate, this record was breaking with 12 look-ups:

Character String Too Long
255 character limitation in a single string
You may have more than 255 characters of data in a TXT or SPF record, but not more than 255 characters in a single string.
If you attempt to create an SPF or TXT record with a long string (>255 characters) in it, BIND will give an error
(e.g. "invalid rdata format: ran out of space".) Strings in SPF and TXT records should be no longer than 255 characters.
However to get around this limitation, per RFC 4408 a TXT or SPF record is allowed to contain multiple strings, which
should be concatenated together by the reading application. In the case of use for SPF (using either TXT or SPF RRs)
the strings are concatenated together without spaces as described below. Reassembly by other applications of multiple
strings stored in TXT records might work differently.
3.1.3. Multiple Strings in a Single DNS record
As defined in [RFC1035] sections 3.3.14 and 3.3, a single text DNS
record (either TXT or SPF RR types) can be composed of more than one
string. If a published record contains multiple strings, then the
record MUST be treated as if those strings are concatenated together
without adding spaces. For example:
IN TXT "v=spf1 .... first" "second string..."
MUST be treated as equivalent to
IN TXT "v=spf1 .... firstsecond string..."
SPF or TXT records containing multiple strings are useful in
constructing records that would exceed the 255-byte maximum length of
a string within a single TXT or SPF RR record.
text = "v=spf1 ip4:22.214.171.124/22 ip4:126.96.36.199/24 ip4:188.8.131.52/24 ip4:184.108.40.206/24 ip4:220.127.116.11/24 ip4:18.104.22.168/26 ip4:22.214.171.124/32 ip4:126.96.36.199/22 ~all“
text = "v=spf1 ip4:188.8.131.52/22“ " ip4:184.108.40.206/24 ip4:220.127.116.11/24 ip4:18.104.22.168/24" " ip4:22.214.171.124/24 ip4:126.96.36.199/26" " ip4:188.8.131.52/32 ip4:184.108.40.206/22 ~all"
Null Records in the SPF Record
A record that is NULL or that does not exist will break an SPF record. Syntax within the record is very important, if there are extra spaces between mechanisms it will count as NULL.
text = "v=spf1 ip4:220.127.116.11/22 “ <- accurate
text = "v=spf1 ip4: 18.104.22.168/22 “ <- NULL (NOTE the space between IP4: and the IP)
Repetitive Records in the SPF Record - Void Lookups
If there are too many repetitive mechanisms in the SPF record, including records that cascade (for example when using "include:") the record will break.
There is a MAX of 2 void look ups in an SPF record. More than that and the record will break. This prevents SPF records from being used in Denial of Service style attacks.

You or your sales reps are getting an error when editing your leads or contact records in Salesforce saying "The record you were editing was modified by Account Marketo during your edit session".
This error will usually occur in Salesforce when you are in the Edit page in while at the same time the Marketo sync is updating that same record by our periodic API sync. While this error occurs very rarely, and usually by performing mass updates from Marketo (usually by batch campaigns).
Here are some steps you can take from a Marketo perspective to resolve or significantly reduce the chances of this error occurring:
1. Change the process that you use to update records in Salesforce - You can successfully reduce this error by using Inline editing (by double clicking on the individual field on the record) as opposed to doing a mass update of multiple fields on 1 record (by using the Edit button).
Inline Editing - As the screenshot below shows, this done by double clicking on the individual field on your record then updating the field and then pressing the "Save" button or double pressing on the Enter key on your keyboard.
Mass Editing - this is done by first pressing the "Edit" button on the record's detail page, which will then take you the the Edit page where you can mass update multiple records then press the "Save" button.
2. Increase the Salesforce sync interval time - Another option to reduce the the possibility or receiving this error is to reduce the number of times that Marketo syncs with Salesforce. This option in effect increases the time between Marketo and salesforce syncs. (The default is 5 minutes.) The downside to this option is that updates made in Marketo will take a longer to sync to Salesforce and vice versa. If you want to proceed with this option, you will need to contact Marketo support to get your sync wait time increased.

This article provides an overview of Bizible's custom attribution model and how to set it up.
What is the Custom Attribution Model?
Bizible's Custom Attribution model allows users to choose which touchpoints or custom stages to include in the model. Users are able to control the percentage of revenue credit attributed to these touchpoints and stages, or, can use the attribution percentage values suggested by Bizible's Machine Learning Model.
How do I set up my Custom Attribution Model?
1) Determine which stages you want to include in your custom model
To start building your custom attribution model, you will need to select which stages are important to your Marketing team. In addition to Bizible's milestone stages (FT, LC, OC, Closed) you can add up to six additional Lead/Contact Statuses or Opportunity stages in your custom model. For example, it's common for the MQL stage to be included in the custom model. Marketing teams often want to know what efforts or channels are driving transitions to the MQL stage.
Sign into apps.bizible.com. Go to My Account > Settings > and under the CRM section, select Stage Mapping.
Once here, you will need to select which Leads/Contacts, and Opportunity stages to include by selecting the Include in Model box.
Please note that all the Leads/Contacts and Opportunity stages will appear here, even if the stage is inactive or no longer used in Salesforce. If you want these stages removed, you will need to hard delete them in Salesforce.
When you've selected your stages, be sure to click the Save & Process button at the bottom of the page. These stages will now appear in the Attribution Settings tab and you will be able to assign attribution percentages to each stage. Custom stages will also be displayed in the Marketing Performance Suite as a Lead or Opportunity stage within the Demand Waterfall.
If there are other stages that you want to include in the model, but they are not in the Lead/Contact Status or Opportunity Stage list, you can define your own custom stage based off of fields in your CRM.
In the example below, a custom “MQL” stage is defined using a date field. The rule simply states that if the MQL Date field isn’t empty, it should be considered an MQL and should be included in the custom model. Please note it is also important to sort the custom stages once they have been created so that it follows the progression of your sales cycle.
IMPORTANT: Enable History Tracking for Custom Fields!
If a custom field is being used in your custom model, Field History tracking MUST be enabled in the CRM. For instructions on how to enable field history tracking, please click here.
2) Determine the attribution percentages for the custom model
Go to the Attribution Settings in Bizible Apps; the custom stages will appear here in the attribution table. The attribution table displays all of Bizible's attribution models, and the attribution weighting of each model. The attribution percentages of the first five models are fixed and cannot be changed.
In the far right column labeled "Custom," you can set the percentage weighting for each stage in your custom attribution model. Simply input the values for each stage under the Custom column. Then Save and Reprocess once complete.
To the left of the "Custom" column is Bizible's Machine Learning model. The Machine Learning model calculates attribution weighting based on the relative importance to winning a deal depending on what happened at each custom stage. For more information about the Machine Learning model, please click here.
After the attribution percentages have been saved and processed, touchpoints will be updated and receive their new stages and positions. The touchpoint that occurred most recently, prior to a stage transition, will receive credit for that stage (as shown below). The custom weighting and revenue gets redistributed as well.
What is is the difference between Funnel Stages and Custom Model Stages?
You can now see custom stages in your Marketing Funnel, even if you don’t have Custom Model enabled. This would be through the use of our Funnel Stage functionality. Funnel Stages now give you the ability to add stages to the funnel, but not see attribution for them.
Funnel Stages will still get tracked as Touchpoints and will still appear as Touchpoint Positions in your CRM. Without Custom Model, these Touchpoints may still receive middle touch attribution if there’s a form fill (10% for Middle Touches), but zero attribution credit if it’s just a web visit.
As you can see in the screenshot below, we've included the Diligence stage as apart of our Funnel Stages. This means we will have Touchpoints where the position contains Diligence, but those Touchpoints will only receive Middle Touch attribution credit if Custom Model isn't enabled (at most 10%).

Bizible's Post-Lead Creation (PostLC) touchpoints are available for customers using multi-touch attribution models (W-Shape and above). When a Lead or Contact returns to your website and continues to fill out forms, these form submissions will register as PostLC touchpoints. These touchpoints allow you to see what content is driving Leads to continue to engage with your site, long after their first conversion. PostLC touchpoints share attribution credit with all the intermediary touchpoints within an Opportunity; 10% attribution credit is allotted to intermediary touchpoints, and is distributed equally among all touches.
You can adjust the number of PostLC touchpoints that will be displayed in SFDC. Typically we recommend pushing up to five PostLC touchpoints; each touchpoint takes up 1KB in SFDC.
Instructions for how to adjust PostLC touchpoint settings can be found at the end of this article.
PostLC touchpoints are dynamic. As a Lead or Contact continues to submit PostLC forms, Bizible will update the PostLC touchpoints in your CRM to show you their most recent form submissions. Specifically, if you've set a limit of 5 PostLC touchpoints, Bizible always push the 5 most recent touchpoints to your CRM.
In this example, this account has set their PostLC limit to four touchpoints. This Lead has already reached maximum number of PostLC touchpoints it can have in your CRM. The last PostLC touch was on 2/6/2018. If this person were to fill out another form the following day, Bizible will remove the first PostLC touchpoint from 11/9/2017 in order to add the latest touchpoint from 2/7/2018.
Please note that Bizible will only update PostLC touchpoints on the Lead or Contact, and will not update PostLC attribution touchpoints on an Opportunity. All relevant PostLC touchpoints on a Contact will be included in the Opportunity.

Similar to our AdWords & Bing Ads integrations, our Facebook integration does two fundamental actions:
1. Auto-tag all Facebook Ads with a Bizible parameter (_bf)
2. Download ad cost information across all active Facebook ads
How to configure the Facebook integration:
As for setup, there are 7 steps to be completed within Bizible's app:
1) Navigate to apps.bizible.com and login
2) Under My Account select Settings
3) Under Integrations select Connections
4) Select Set Up New Ads Connection and a pop-up will appear. Select Facebook and login using your Facebook credentials (Note: the person connecting the Facebook Ads account needs to be an admin within the Facebook Ads account)
6) Once Bizible is connected to your Facebook account, click the pencil icon next to the account
7) Within this view, move the 'Auto-tagging?' toggle to 'Yes.' Then select the check box found in the Learn More section to agree to the terms and conditions. Make sure the Auto-tagging toggle is still set to 'Yes'.
Connecting the Account:
Important Note: If you enable auto-tagging we'll reset the conversion history and social proof of all of the ads that we tag. We highly recommend exporting this data as a CSV before you enable auto-tagging.
Once you've enabled the integration, Bizible will start downloading ad level cost into the Bizible Marketing ROI Dashboard.
For the integration to properly work, you'll need to enable auto-tagging on your Facebook account. This will allow our system to add a _bf parameter across all ad links. This process will add the new parameter on top of any other tracking parameters you've already added to your Facebook ads.
Q: What Facebook Ads are supported by Bizible?
A: Carousel, Single Image. Not Video, Slideshow or Collection at this time.
Q: What is social proof?
A: Social proof is visible engagement such as likes, clicks, comments, and shares.
Q: What happens when Bizible tags the Ad?
A: Facebook does not allow ads to be edited so Bizible needs to delete the creative, which contains the Destination URL, and then re-create the ad with the new parameters.
Q: Why does Bizible update all Facebook Ads?
A: Bizible's process is to tag all ads in case they are re-activated.
Q: What permission does the connected user need?
A: ads_management, email
Q: How long can it take to import spend data?
A: 1 hour
Q: How long can it take to import ad data?
A: 4 hours

Summary Handling 606 rate limiting, 607 daily quota, and 615 concurrency errors.
Issue An API user is receiving rate (606), quota (607), or concurrency (615) errors when connecting to the Marketo Engage REST API. The errors will be evident in the responses to the requests creating them and in admin notifications as a web services error notification.
Solution The Marketo Engage REST API is protected by 3 limitations on the number of requests made: daily quota, request rate, and the number of simultaneous/concurrent requests. The errors generated when on of these limits is exceeded are recoverable by waiting the appropriate amount of time before retrying the request.
Daily Quota: Error Code 607
This error indicates that the number of requests made since 12:00AM CST has exceeded the daily quota. The daily quota varies and can be found in your Admin->Web Services menu. Contact your account manager if you require increased daily quota.
Rate Limit: Error Code 606 and Concurrency Limit: Error Code 615
Handling concurrency and rate limiting errors is similar. In each case, the request should be tried again after a waiting period. At most 10 requests can be processed by any Marketo Engage instance at a time. Error code 615 will be returned if there are already 10 open HTTP connections to the instance's REST API and an attempt is made to create an 11th connection. At most, 100 requests can be processed by any Marketo Engage instance in any rolling 20 second window of time. Error code 606 will be returned if there have already been 100 requests in the last 20 seconds. In both cases, an exponential backoff retry strategy will allow your application to eventually make a successful request. All popular web development languages have libraries available which implement exponential backoff: using an existing library is highly recommended. Unlike daily quota which an be increased through your account manager, rate and concurrency limits cannot be changed.
For information on implementing your own exponential backoff algorithm, see Devopedia's article on Binary Exponential Backoff. For more best practices to apply when using the Marketo Engage REST API, see this page.

When trying to sync updates to your salesforce.com instance from Marketo you see one of the following errors in the activity log :
Failed: INSUFFICIENT_ACCESS_ON_CROSS_REFERENCE_ENTITY INSUFFICIENT_ACCESS_OR_READONLY INVALID_CROSS_REFERENCE_KEY This is an error sent to Marketo from Salesforce. There are a number of reasons why this error could occur. INSUFFICIENT_ACCESS_ON_CROSS_REFERENCE_ENTITY means that the user who is trying to make the update does not have access to a related element that is required for the record to be updated and saved in SFDC. There are a number of specific examples of what might be the cause but these will vary from organisation to organization depending on the configuration of your salesforce.com. If you were to connect to sfdc as the Marketo user and try manually updating the same record that Marketo is trying to update then you will get the same error in the salesforce.com UI. Here are a list of some elements that you should check in SFDC if you see this error:
Do you use record types? If so make sure that the the Marketo user has access to all required record types and that the Record Type Id in Marketo is correct for the Lead or Contact. Sometimes, when a Lead is converted to a Contact in SFDC, the Record Type ID fails to update in Marketo, causing the sync to fail. This is one of the most common causes for these errors. Are there any look-up or master detail fields on the object in question? If these types of fields are being updated then make sure that the Marketo user has access this object/ these records. Do you use Apex? If so you may have trigger that fire on the the update of a record, you will need to make sure that the Marketo user has profile access to the relevant Apex classes. If you have any workflow rules or assignment rules that send an email when the record is saved then you will need to make sure that the Marketo user has the send email permission and has access to the email folder that contains the mails that are sent rules are triggered. Make sure "Convert Leads" is turned-on within SFDC. If it is not, you will get this error message when trying to merge leads that exist within Marketo and SFDC.

An email being filtered to a quarantine or bulk mail folder happens after the recipient mail server has accepted message. Once an email has been accepted by a mail server, it is impossible to tell where it went or what happened to it. Note that this is true of any mail sent by any system on the Internet.
Every mail server has configurable filters that determine how received mail will be handled. The mail server administrator should be able to adjust those filters to ensure delivery of emails based on their business standards, or there may even be end-user-configurable controls that can accomplish the same thing.
If test mailings you are sending to yourself or your colleagues are being filtered to a quarantine or bulk mail folder, you should consider asking your email administrator to whitelist Marketo’s IP ranges. They can be found here .
You can also improve your deliverability in general by setting up SPF and DKIM records , and branding your tracking links .

What is HSTS?
The HTTP Strict-Transport-Security response header (often abbreviated as HSTS) lets a web site tell browsers that it should only be accessed using HTTPS, instead of using HTTP. This prevents man-in-the-middle attacks by telling the browser it should never interact with their domain without first establishing a secure HTTPS connection.
What does this mean for Marketo assets?
A domain can assert the HSTS policy for all of it's subdomains. This means both the subdomains used for Marketo landing pages and the subdomains for Marketo tracking links must also be secured with SSL certificates. If HSTS is asserted and the Marketo subdomains are not secured, people that visit landing pages or click on tracked links in emails will receive security errors and browsers will not load the pages.
This is resolved by purchasing both Secured Domains for Landing Pages and Secured Domains for Tracking Links. There are very few exceptions where a domain utilizing HSTS will not need to secure both landing page domains and tracking link domains.
How do I know if my domain is using HSTS?
Reach out to your IT and/or web development team to confirm whether or not your domain utilizes HSTS and if both Secured Domains and Tracking Links are necessary for your business. If your website utilizes HSTS and has the "include subdomains" flag set to true, you will need to secure both your landing page domains and tracking link domains in almost all circumstances.
Google Chrome has a built in HSTS checker that you can use to verify your HSTS settings.
1. Visit the root domain of your website with the Chrome browser. For example, if your Marketo landing pages use visit.acme.com, navigate to acme.com. This will load the domain's HSTS policy into Chrome.
2. Navigate to chrome://net-internals/#hsts in Chrome. This will load Chrome's HSTS checker.
3. In the "Query HSTS/PKP domain" section, type in your domain you wish to check. Click "Query".
4. If the query returns "Found" with a list of configuration settings, you will need to check two settings:
If either "status_upgrade_mode" or "dynamic_upgrade_mode" have the value "FORCE_HTTPS" or "STRICT", then the domain is enforcing HSTS and all connections are made over HTTPS. If either "static_pkb_include_subdomains" or "dynamic_pkp_include_subdomains" are equal to "true", then all subdomains are subject to the HSTS policy.
If both of the above are true then both Secured Domains for Landing Pages and Tracking Links may be required.
If the query returns "Not Found", or is not using a "FORCE_HTTPS" or "STRICT" policy then the landing page and tracking link subdomains may not have strict HTTPS requirements.
Always verify with your IT and/or web development team as to what your domain's security policies and requirements are. Failure to properly secure your landing page or tracking domains according to your domain's security policy may result in landing pages or tracking links not resolving in browsers. A lack of a strict HSTS policy does not necessarily mean you do not need to secure your Marketo domains.
My domain asserts HSTS on my subdomains but I do not have HTTPS encryption with my Marketo subscription. What do I do?

Securing your Marketo Landing Pages
By default, Marketo serves landing pages by HTTP, and historically we’ve given our customers the choice of whether or not to secure their Marketo landing pages to HTTPS. With the recent changes to Chrome browser, there’s increasing interest in securing Marketo landing pages to avoid the “Not Secure” warning visitors will see when entering data on HTTP pages. Marketo’s Secured Domains for Landing Pages product secures any and all landing page domains defined in your instance so they will be served via HTTPS. Contact your Marketo Customer Success Manager to purchase Secured Domains for Landing Pages for your subscription.
Note: This new product replaces our previous SSL for Landing Pages service. Marketo will begin selling Secured Domains for Landing Pages on December 1, 2017.
Identifying Landing Page Domains in Your Instance
Marketo’s Secured Domains for Landing Pages product secures up to 4 domains (per unit purchased) to enable secured (HTTPS) landing pages for your instance.
If you’re a new Marketo customer with a new subscription, one of the steps in setting up your instance is to set your CNAMES, landing pages domain name, and any domain aliases. For more information see, Customizing Your Landing Pages URL with a CNAME and Adding Additional Landing Page CNAMEs. Once this is done, you’ll be ready to count the unique domains (as described below) and initiate the Secured Domains for Landing Pages process (if purchased or included in your instance).
Have you had your Marketo subscription for a while and want to know how many landing page domains you’ve got setup in your instance? If you’re a Marketo Admin, you can see your landing pages domain name and domain aliases by clicking on Landing Pages in the Integration section of the Admin console:
On the Landing Pages tab, you’ll see your landing pages Domain Name. The first part of the URL (info.) is your CNAME and the second part (gladiatorapps.com) is the domain. Here’s an overview of the pieces that make up a full domain name:
Next, you’ll also need to check the Rules tab and look for Domain Aliases. In the example below, there are two domain aliases. One has the same domain as the landing pages domain (gladiator.com) and the other has a different domain (theappninjas.com).
For the instance in the example above, it has been set up with two unique domains (gladiatorapps.com and theappninjas.com). It’s important to note that when it comes to securing your Marketo landing pages, the Secured Domains for Landing Pages process will secure all of the domains in your instance. It’s an all-or-nothing action, meaning you cannot chose which domains to secure for HTTPS and which to leave HTTP. And don’t worry – we’ll count these up for you so we can scope your subscription correctly.
Adding Secured Domains for Landing Pages to Your Marketo Subscription
Contact your Marketo Customer Success Manager to add Secured Domains for Landing Pages to your instance.
The Secured Domains for Landing Pages Process
If Marketo Secured Domains for Landing Pages has been added or is a part of your subscription, the process to secure your pages includes steps that must be completed on Marketo’s side as well as steps that you’ll need to complete in your instance prior to us enabling HTTPS.
On our side, we’ll install the necessary security certificates to create secure server end point to serve your landing pages over HTTPS.
On your side, to ready your instance for the conversion to HTTPS, you’ll need to review, update and reapprove your landing pages:
Once you’ve completed the steps above, it’s time to coordinate the cutover to HTTPS with Marketo. You’ll need let Marketo Support know that you’re ready to initiate the cutover process. To help ensure a smooth transition, we’ll work with you to plan a time when you have few or no upcoming batch campaigns running, and also a time when your team is available, if needed, to make a few updates in your Marketo instance.
RECOMMENDATION: After the cutover, you may notice that images are not displayed in the Marketo email editor or preview mode. Rest assured your emails will send correctly and the images will render for recipients. To see the images in Marketo, you must adjust the image URLs from HTTP to HTTPS in the editor. Again, whether you take this step or not, the images will render properly for your email recipients. In the example below, you would adjust the HTTP to HTTPS.
That’s it! Once our team enables Secured Landing Pages for your instance, your landing pages will be served via HTTPS. Of course, it’s a good idea to do some validation of your pages after the cutover to be sure your pages are loading correctly, images are loading, and that you didn’t miss any hard-coded HTTP links. Moving your pages to HTTPS, you can rest assured that you’re providing critical security and data integrity for both your pages and your visitors’ personal information. Good job, you!
OTHER HELPFUL FAQs
Do I need to provide a TLS/SSL Certificate?
Marketo’s new Secured Domains for Landing Pages product available in December 2017, manages all aspects of procuring, managing and renewing a certificate and key for you. You do not have to provide a certificate. If you purchased a SSL for Landing Pages service prior to this date and provided a certificate, you will be updated to the new process at your next certificate renewal.
What Certificate Authority issues the certificate(s) for the Marketo’s Secured Domains for Landing Pages product?
The certificates are authored by Digicert.
What type of certificate is provided?
We produce a pack of two certificates; The primary certificate uses a P-256 key, is SHA-2/ECDSA signed, and will be presented to browsers that support elliptic curve cryptography (ECC). The secondary or fallback certificate uses an RSA 2048-bit key, is SHA-2/RSA signed, and will be presented to browsers that do not support ECC.
Will my domains be on a shared SSL certificate with other companies?
As part of our Secured Domains for Landing Pages each of your domains will get its own certificate. That means you will not be on a shared certificate with other companies.
Will all the subdomains be covered?
Up to 40 subdomains per unique top-level domain may be covered. As an example, with your company.com domains, the subdomains go.company.com, info.company.com, help.company.com etc. may be covered. Please keep in mind that company.com, company.com.uk, company.com.ca are separate top-level domains.
Can I choose which domains/subdomains to secure?
Securing your domains is all-or-nothing, meaning the process automatically secures all domains/subdomains you've set up in your instance.
If I have a CAA record, can it affect my certificate issuance?
Yes, CAA records must be configured to allow Digicert issuance, or your certificate will not be able to issue. Further information: https://www.digicert.com/dns-caa-rr-check.htm
Can I provide my own SSL certificate(s) to secure my domains?
We do not recommend providing your own certificates.
We require an Extended Validation (EV) certificate. Can the Secured Domains for Landing Pages product accommodate this?
Serving Extended Validation (EV) certificates requires you to procure the EV certificate/private key and provide this to Marketo. The standard Secured Domains for Landing Pages does not include EV certificates.
What Marketo configuration is required to complete the Landing Page SSL Setup?
One or more CNAMEs for the Marketo Landing Pages must be configured in the Admin section of the application as described here: Setup Steps - Marketo Docs - Product Docs
How many domains can I secure?
Each Secured Domains for Landing Pages product secures up to 4 domains. You’ll need to purchase multiple quantities to cover all the unique domains in your instance. Contact your Marketo Customer Success Manager for scoping/pricing.
If I am using Domain Aliases in my Marketo subscription, do I have to secure each of these?
Securing your Marketo landing pages requires you to secure all domains used in your instance including your Domain Aliases.
How do I see the Landing Page domains in my instance?
Marketo Admins can see your landing pages domain name and all domain aliases by clicking on Landing Pages in the Integration section of the Admin console. On the Landing Pages tab, you will see your full Landing Page Domain Name. On the Rules tab, you will find all Domain Aliases set up for your instance. For the Secured Domains for Landing Pages you will need to count the number of domains used in your instance. When counting domains, please provide the number of unique domains – only the orange part below:
Are Domain Aliases for different countries counted separately?
When counting domains, you might have: info.mydomain.com, info.mydomain.au, info.mydomain.de. In this case mydomain.com, mydomain.au and mydomain.de are all counted as separate domains (in this example there are 3 unique domains that must be secured).
Will URLs to the existing non-secure (HTTP) Marketo Landing Pages continue to work?
Your existing HTTP URLs will continue to work and will automatically be redirected to the secure (HTTPS) pages. There are only few situations where you may have to manually update the URL, specifically when you include a Marketo landing page on a secure website using an iframe. In this case, you will need to load the secure version of the landing page, otherwise the end user will get a security warning.
Does securing my Marketo landing pages also secure my corporate website?
No. Marketo Secured Domains for Landing Pages only affects the landing pages served by Marketo. It does not affect any pages on your corporate (non-Marketo) website.
If I don’t use Marketo Landing Pages, do I need Secured Domains for Landing Pages?
You may if you are embedding Marketo Forms on secured non-Marketo webpages. The default form code snippet that Marketo provides uses //app-aba.marketo.com which is a Marketo domain that can be served securely on a HTTPs parent page (the // indicates the request will use whatever protocol the parent uses). With this, your Marketo form will take on the security level of the page it’s embedded on regardless of whether you’re using our Secured Domains for Landing Pages product. However, if you prefer not to have any reference to “marketo” on your corporate website, you may choose to change this code snippet from //app-aba.marketo.com to //<MY_LP_CNAME> to serve the form. In this case, you would need the Secured Domains for Landing Pages product since the LP CNAME will need a security certificate associated with it to serve securely.
Can I add additional Domains to my instance and secure these too?
Once you’ve secured your landing page domains with the Secured Domains for Landing Pages process, you will need to contact Marketo when adding additional domains/domain aliases. Please contact your Marketo Customer Success Manager. There may be an additional charge depending on the number of domains you are adding.
If I previously secured my Marketo Landing Pages with the SSL for Landing Pages Service, do I need to switch to Secured Domains for Landing Pages?
We have discontinued the SSL for Landing Pages service and process, so you will need to switch. Your Customer Success Manager will work with you to add Secured Domains for Landing Pages at your next SSL certificate renewal or at your subscription renewal, whichever comes first.
Do I need to secure my tracking links as well?
If your domain enforces a strict HSTS policy on all subdomains you will need to also purchase our Secured Domains for Tracking Links service. Please contact your Marketo Customer Success Manager to purchase this add-on. For my information on HSTS and Marketo subdomains, please see the following documentation SSL: The HSTS Policy and Your Marketo Subdomains

The fields and records that will sync from Salesforce are defined by the permissions of the Marketo sync user. Therefore, if you want to prevent specific records or fields from syncing with Marketo, change the permissions of the sync user so they do not have access to the records and fields you do want to sync. Alternatively, you can work with Marketo Support to set up a Custom Sync Filter that will prevent records from syncing based on the value in a specified field.

Our sync employs a field level conflict resolution mechanism. For a particular record, if field X is updated in Microsoft Dynamics CRM and field Y is updated in Marketo, then we will update Marketo with the new value for field X and Microsoft Dynamics CRM with the new value for field Y. In the case where the same field is updated on both systems for a particular record with a short period of time, we will choose the Marketo value as the winner for Leads and the Microsoft Dynamics CRM value as the winner for Contacts.

We have enhanced the behavior of the unsubscribe functionality to make it “durable”. We have added a master email status, which is separate from the unsubscribe flag visible on the lead detail record.
If the unsubscribe flag is set from false to true, the master email status is updated, and the change is propagated to other leads with the same email address.
Update the Unsubscribe flag from True to False (e.g. Re-subscribe a lead)
When a lead is imported, the unsubscribe flag WILL NOT be overwritten by the import.
Here are the ways a lead can be re-subscribed:
1. In SFDC, uncheck the Email Opt Out field. This WILL sync to Marketo.
2. Manually update the lead detail record by un-checking the unsubscribe flag
3. Run a Change Data Value Flow Action on one or many leads
a. Select the attribute “unsubscribe” and set the value to False
4. Update an existing lead via SOAP API
5. Form Field – set a field on a form to set the unsubscribe flag to “false” and this will unsubscribe the lead
a. Best practice would be to have text on the form that says that by filling out this form, they are agreeing to receive email communication
Creating a New Lead
When a new lead is created, we check it against the master email status table. If the lead was previously unsubscribed, we will update the record to be unsubscribed.
Changing an email address
If you change the email address of a lead to an unsubscribed email address, the lead will be unsubscribed. This change can occur in either Marketo or SFDC. If you change an unsubscribed email address to one that is subscribed, the lead will be subscribed.
