These additional links were not in the current email and yet they are including in the response report.  I have scoured the entire document and can not find any reference to these links, however Emma reports that there were clicks on it.  Thanks for any help you can provie

Hi there,

I'd be happy to take a look for you!

Could you let me know which mailing you're seeing this in and the links you're seeing?

12/19 mailing - Don’t rest on your rifle’s barrel (0 clicks)
fishgame.com/2017/12/try-tricks-bag-mid-season-bucks/ (18 clicks)

And both of these were in earlier mailings, so I am not sure if there is some "hidden" coding I need to remove from my template that is causing this or if it is simply a reporting issue on Emma's end.  Thanks for any clarification.

Hi There,
Ben jumping in for Caroline here. I just made a copy of that campaign and took a look at the code view of some of those blocks, and it looks like the links from the previous mailing are still in the code of this new campaign, which is why I think that they are showing up in the response. If you are consistently copying previous campaigns when making new mailings, the HTML and CSS can start to compound and cause weird issues like this. The best thing to do when creating a new campaign is to start from a fresh new template to ensure that strange things like this do not happen. 

I hope this helps! Let me know if there are any other questions that I can answer!
