Impact of page changes on running experiments

Hi,

 

What is  the impact of page changes made directly on a page on running experiments?

 

Example

I run a test on 20% of traffic for 7 days. After 2 days, a change is made on that page (not through Optimizely editor). Will the change affect:

- Only the 80% of "non tested traffic"?

- The 80% of "non tested traffic" + the "Original" portion of "tested traffic"?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Eddardstark87,

Optimizely runs against the live - current version of your site.  Any changes that are made to the page will affect everyone who sees the page.  (Unless the change happens to be in an area of the page that you are replacing as part of your experiment.)
