Testing 2 redirect URLs

Testing 2 redirect URLs

We're looking to test these 2 URL variations off a CTA button:

 

Variation 1: Redirect #1 redirects to Website #1

 

Variation 2: Redirect #2 redirects to Website #2

 

How would we do this without it looking like all the traffic went to Redirect #1?

Re: Testing 2 redirect URLs

"How would we do this without it looking like all the traffic went to Redirect #1?" - is this in terms of results or what the user sees?

 

If it's results, add a unique class in variant one to redirect #1 and another unique class in variant two to redirect #2.

 

Ex.

Redirect #1

<a href="blah" class="redirectOne">Your Text</a>

 

Redirect #2

<a href="blah" class="redirectTwo">Your Text</a>

 

Be sure to monitors clicks on .redirectOne and .redirectTwo for your goals. If it's for what the user sees then just change the URLs like so:

 

Redirect #1

<a href="http://blah.html" class="redirectOne">Your Text</a>

 

Redirect #2

<a href="http://plop.html" class="redirectOne">Your Text</a>

Re: Testing 2 redirect URLs

Hi @JL - could you help us understand the workflow a little better? Someone clicks a CTA, and you want variation #1 of that CTA to point to URL #1, and then you want variation #2 of that CTA to point to URL #2? Or are you saying that you want to redirect after both variations click the CTA and go to the same URL?
