Email to Website Tracking
When email to website tracking is enabled, Klaviyo identifies individuals that click through a Klaviyo email and browse your website. You can toggle on and off Klaviyo's ability to track email to website activity in your account's email settings.
9/20/21 Update: with the release of iOS 15, macOS Monterey, iPadOS 15, and WatchOS 8, Apple will change the way that we receive open rate data on your emails by prefetching our tracking pixel. With this change, it’s important to understand that open rates will be inflated.
If you have over 1,000 opens, we suggest moving to utilize click rate data as your engagement driver. It may also be useful to look at the number of iOS-specific users within your data to understand how your open rates will change.
For complete information on ways to potentially mitigate these Apple open changes, visit our iOS 15: How to Prepare for Apple’s Changes guide.
To navigate to your email settings page click Account > Settings > Email.
When this is on, we add an additional parameter to all URLs in your emails to track activity. This is called the _kx parameter, and _kx will appear directly in the URL. The unique encrypted value is then decrypted by our web tracking and allows us to identify the user that clicked through the URL.
