Variation is never shown

Hi,

 

I was just beginning to understand Optimizely when I noticed a problem. I have set up a variation(Variation#1) for my homepage for Google Chrome users. The original version of the homepage for this audience is shown, but the variation page is never shown. Even if I set the traffic allocation for Variation#1 to 99%, the original homepage is always shown. Do I have the experiment set up wrong?

 

Any insights are much appreciated!

You might have been bucketed to the original, so when editing to 99% you would still be shown the original. Leave everything as is and try loading the page in Incognito mode.

Thanks that solved the problem! So the page was still in my cache or something like that?

Exactly and it makes sense. Because you would not want a visitor see 2 different experiences.
