Experiment Just To Track Button Clicks

Hi,

 

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.

There's no harm in just tracking buttons. I've done this many times just to provide clear data for whoever requested such data. It may also save you set up time in the future if you ever need to use such tracking.
