I Can't Create an internal link variation and track it

Hi,

 

I'm new to Optimizely and A/B testing. I created an internal link which I want to include as a tracking (goal). However, when I try to include de track, the link is not there. Is it an error, or it's not possible to include this link in the variation page?

 

Thank you

Hi Stefan,

First of all, congratulations to your first steps with Optimizely!

Do I understand you correctly that your issue is that the change you're trying to implement is not appearing on the page? Or is the problem that the tracking of your click/page view goal is not working? In general, there shouldn't be any problem with including internal links in your experiments.

(assuming you're working with Optimizely X)
If you're having a problem with the variation content not appearing, I would recommend having a look at the following article: https://help.optimizely.com/Troubleshoot_Problems/Troubleshooting%3A_Variation_content_doesn't_appea....
If you're having difficulties with setting up the goal, please have a look here: https://help.optimizely.com/Set_Up_Optimizely/Prepare_your_site_for_Optimizely_X_Web#2._Add_Events.

(in case you would be working with Optimizely Classic)
This is the article to look at if your variation content doesn't appear: https://help.optimizely.com/Troubleshoot_Problems/Troubleshooting%3A_Variation_content_doesn't_appea....
And here, you can find more information about setting up goals in Optimizely Classic: https://help.optimizely.com/Measure_success%3A_Track_visitor_behaviors/Goals%3A_Measure_success_in_O....

Hopefully this will help you to move forward but please let me know if you need more help!

Best regards,
Optimizely
