Experiment Just To Track Button Clicks
I have set up a few experiments now and i find the results intriguing.
Is it bad practice to set up an Experiment without any variations JUST to track the number of clicks on an Original page.
There is no shame in tracking user interactions.
Go for it!
Besides - suppose you were considering an experiment on the page that contains that button. It's nice to build up a baseline of how often that button is clicked - this will help with estimating how long your experiment must run to gain any sort of significance.
