Click Through Rates (CTR)

Your email click through rates shows how often individuals have clicked on one or more links in your email. This statistic is tracked by encoding each link in your email with a special code. Every email has a different special code. Since each recipient has a different code, this allows you to know which individual clicked on which links. Most mailing list companies provide this very important statistic. If yours doesn't then it's time to look for another mailing list company.

This is the single best indicator that will allow you to gauge the interest level of your marketing campaign.

Are too many links bad for your click through rate?

If you have too many links in your email, spam filtering software will consider your emails to be spamming. Have you ever noticed those emails with one large photo? Then underneath it in a light color text you will see a bunch of text words that's complete gibberish? The reason for this is that they are trying to decrease their text to link ratio. It's important to balance your emails with text, images, and links. You can learn more by reading "How to Avoid Spam Filters."
