Experiment Types

Optimize offers different experiment types to fit your testing needs.

  • A/B or A/B/n Tests

    A/B tests, or A/B/n tests, let you test multiple versions of the same web page to learn which page works best for your users.
  • Multivariate Tests

    Multivariate tests allow you to test multiple elements on a page to see which combination achieves your goals.
    With Optimize 360, enterprises can test even more element combinations.
  • Redirect Tests

    A redirect test, or split URL test, is a type of A/B test that lets you test separate pages against each other. With redirect tests, the test variants are identified by URL instead of page element which is most useful when testing two very different landing pages or a complete page redesign.
  • Server-Side Experiments

    Create and deploy your own variants on your own system. You can still use Optimize to view reports and determine a winner. Learn more.
  • Additional Simultaneous Experiments (Optimize 360 Only)

    With Optimize 360, you can run up to 100 experiments at a time to test anything and everything on your site with greater efficiency.

Visual Editor

The visual editor allows you to create a new variant of a page without needing to recode your site each time.

  • Easy Editing

    With our WYSIWYG (What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get) editor, you can quickly and easily create variants of your web pages without any recoding — just click to edit.
  • Helpful Diagnostics

    To help ensure the success of your tests, visual editor diagnostics will alert you to potential problems before you ever click the “start” button.
  • Responsive Visual Editor

    Configure experiments for devices of any size with the responsive visual editor. Switch between devices and screen sizes to ensure your site looks its best –for any sized device.

    With Optimize 360, you can customize your experiment to your Analytics audiences. Connect with high-value customers, users with a particular interest, or visitors who have converted recently.
