Hi

It would be awesome to have a  goal funnel within Optimizely for experiments with page view goals that tracks the visitor flow within the experimental conditions.

 

I am looking at my analytics program in which I have configured the experiments. But there is always the possibility of data skew as visitors from outside the experiment do end up on the goal page in the analytics software.

 

Thanks

Ravi,  Are you using Google Analytics?  If you configure a goal funnel and ensure that each screen/page is "required", then you can use that goal as a metric in custom reports for your optimizely experiments.

Hi Shane

Thanks for your comment. Appreciate it very much.

 

I am using the goal funnel within Analytics for all experiments. My request for a feature was to have a provision within Optimizely to set up a goal sequence path that will only track the visitors who take part in the test.

 

With an analytics software, there is always the chance for visitors to land on the test page or one of the intermidate pages leading to the final goal and skew figures. Hence my request.

Hi Ravi,

 

If I understand correctly, you want to be able to track (within Optimizely) the percent of visitors in an experiment that reach page 1, then page 2, then page 3 in sequence.  

 

Is that right?
