  • Spider Clicks

    Hi all

    If the engine is set to spider external urls will the external url register the click as click from the base site or page containing the link.

    i.e will it look like a normal referral link in stats.

    It depends on the stats software and how it behaves.

    From the external server's point of view it will look like a hit on the page. But the User Agent will be different for Zoom compared to a real user or compared to any other engine (like Google) that might visit the site.
