Q4. What is Lead Qualification in Pardot?

The process of finding most interested prospects who are likely to buy your service is called Lead Qualification. Pardot uses two metrics for lead qualification: score and grade. 

  • Prospect score: A prospect’s score is a numerical value indicating how interested they are in your product or service. A prospect’s score can increase or decrease based on how they interact with your marketing materials.
  • Prospect grade: A prospect’s grade is represented by a letter (A, B, C, D, etc.).  It indicates how closely a prospect fits the profile of your ideal prospect.

Q5. What are the two types of cookies set by Pardot?

Two types of cookies set by Pardot are:

  1. Visitor Cookie: The visitor cookie includes a unique identifier for the visitor (visitor_id) plus the unique identifier for your account, which is derived from the tracking code placed on your site. For example, cookie name “visitor_id12345″ stores the visitor value “123456789,” where 12345 is the account identifier and the full string 123456789 represents the visitor ID. Using these tracking values, the cookie stores the activities of visitors and prospects on your site.
  2. Opt In Cookie: Pardot uses a persistent cookie named “pi_opt_in”  to stay in compliance with the “Do Not Track” initiative.  It allows  people to opt out of types of browser tracking.
