Is a customer able to manipulate the split testing?
Hi people :-)
i m pretty new in the game and i have a few questions.
First of all: The idea of split testing is that different customers will get access to different sale pages (based on individual criterias) even if they used the same link, isn't it?
So can i also use "optimizely" to create a kind of "random raffle system" so that only a few customers (clicking the sale link) will be able to get access to a "main sale page" while others will not? For example if i don't have enough products for everyone (e.g. there are 100 interested people, but i can only sell 10 products).
If that is possible (and i guess it is!?) here's my most important question: Is customer X (one of the 100 interested people in my example) able to manipulate or "hack" the system by himself so that he gets a safe access to the main sale page (to buy one of the 10 products before others can) in a way? How could he do that?
Thank you in advance - and excuse my bad english skills :-)
In Optimizely you can control the amount of traffic you want the Experiment to be shown to your visitors, to all (100%) or maybe to the few (10%) .... you can also control the percentage on how Optimizely randomizes visitors between the Original and Variation, by default it's 50/50.
Can visitors hack the system? Very rare for the normal customer to be an Optimizely guru to guess and waste time hacking into the site to view different variations.
The best solution is the simplest.
"Can visitors hack the system? Very rare for the normal customer to be an Optimizely guru to guess and waste time hacking into the site to view different variations."
Though presumably true, to answer the question directly, "Yes, a person can hack the system".

But I don't think someone with the skills and knowledge, waste his time manipulating a redirect experiment. Probably he has a lot of things to do before playing with your website.
