What order are click settings processed in?


If you’re using the advanced settings of tracking links or rotator, you need to be aware of the order that the settings are applied so you can configure things to achieve what you want. For example, does a geotargeting setting take precedence over a mobile URL setting? That can make a difference in how you set things up.


For tracking links the settings are applied in this order:

Password Protect
iOS devices
Mobile devices
Geotargeting
Max Clicks
Repeat Clicks
Primary URL and Split Test URLs  (Pixels settings are fired here)

Based on this, you can see that added Pixels won’t be fired if something earlier in the table sends the click somewhere else, such as geotargeting sending the click to the Backup URL or Max Clicks topping out.


For Rotators the settings are applied in this order:

iOS devices
Mobile devices
Geotargeting in the Advanced Settings
Rotator URLs  (Pixels settings are fired here)
Geotargeting in the Rotator URLs
