Help setting up an experiment

I want to run a navigation test inside of our help desk application to determine which display has a higher level of engagement. The nature of our app is that users will load many pages per session (50+). 


How should i configure our experiement so that we don't burn through our visitors too quickly? Does the snippet only load once per session, per page load? Any guidance is appreciated.

Hi Ben,


When a user visits a page containing the Optimizely snippet, they are assigned a unique ID. This is used to track which actions have been taken by which visitor and to de-duplicate multiple conversions on goals. What this means is that even if a user goes through 50+ pages in a session, they will still only count as one unique visitor because of their unique visitor ID.


I hope this helps! Just let me know if clarification is needed.
