Running a Split Test with the Same URL

Hi,

 

I'm trying to test two different variations of a product page.

 

However i did not want the URL To change, i.e. there will not be a seperate URL For each variation.

 

Please can anyone advise how this is possbile?

 

Thanks!

The URL will inherently not be different for each variant when you input it into your URL targeting and run the test as an A/B test.

Re: Running a Split Test with the Same URL

Hi Robert,

I'm aware of that, but i was wondering what can be done to test two versions of a template.

So 50% of traffic would goto http://www.mywebsite/products/myproduct

and 50% of traffic would goto http://www.mywebsite/products/myproduct

But both versions will show completely different templates. Not just templates that can be implemented in the code editor but complete redesigns.

The redesigns you're looking to test should be built in the variation code. Otherwise, you can set up your new template on a different page and redirect your second variant there. If you want to keep the URL the same, then just add that change on the fly to that second variant.

Re: Running a Split Test with the Same URL

I am looking to do the same thing. I need to run a test with two completely different home pages, but both must have the same URL.

In the response below, I am unclear what exactly is meant by "on the fly" --- 

"If you want to keep the URL the same, then just add that change on the fly to that second variant."

 

Can you elaborate?
