Automated Link Checkers

We've heard through the grapevine that some people had issues with automated link checkers blowing their usage numbers out of the water.

WELL, we are very excited to announce that we have released a release that will help mitigate this issue by applying a timeout after each link is clicked before counting a click as an "event-add" for the same event (the term we are using for this is "debounce"). This timeout is set to 5 seconds, so if there are a bunch of clicks for the same event within that 5-second window, we will record that as 1 event-add.

For example, within a 5-second window, if you had a link checker clicking on 1 link per calendar service (there are 6 supported calendar services), you will see that recorded as 1 event-add instead of 6.


Note: if there is a delay of more than 5 seconds between the links that are being clicked, we will record each click as an individual "event-add".
