Experiments logic

Hi, just checking.

 

Let's say I'm running 2 experiments like this:

A/B Test #1 Original (A) vs. Variation (B) on the startpage.

A/B Test #2 Original (A) vs. Variation (B) on the startpage.

 

Would that mean:

A/B Test #1 Original (A) on the startpage gets 25% of the visitors.

A/B Test #1 Variation (B) on the startpage gets 25% of the visitors.

A/B Test #2 Original (A) on the startpage gets 25% of the visitors.

A/B Test #2 Variation (B) on the startpage gets 25% of the visitors.

 

Or am I wrong? Please explain.

 

Best,

Henrik

Re: Experiments logic

In short: Yes, that's wrong. It will be like this:

 

A/B Test #1 Original (A) on the startpage gets 50% of the visitors.
A/B Test #1 Variation (B) on the startpage gets 50% of the visitors.
A/B Test #2 Original (A) on the startpage gets 50% of the visitors.
A/B Test #2 Variation (B) on the startpage gets 50% of the visitors.

 

Being bucketed into one experiment has no effect on whether or not you get bucketed into another experiment... Even on the same page.

 

If you want to target visitors who are not part of another experiment, see this recommendaton by @nap0leonhttps://community.optimizely.com/t5/Developers/Custom-Audiences-include-exclude-other-experiments-am...
