Do bad links get counted if clicked?

Hi, we sent an email out with a link to a YourTube video on youtube.com. The video was mistakenly set to private on youtube. If an email recipient clicked this link the request is sent to youtube but they'd be unable to view the video. I'm assuming that this click is still counted because the click event did happen. Correct?

Hello @TWBS ,

 

Correct, even if that link goes nowhere, they're still clicking on the tracked rewrite of it - allowing it to show in reporting.
