best practice for multiple subdomains

We have a few subdomains such as landing.domain.com and blog.domain.com

 

what is the best practice for Optmizely setup? should we define different projects for each subdomain or setup one for all subdomains?

 

tracking revenue becomes challenging if we have separate projects. is there any other way to pass that to another project without loading full js code?

 

if not, can we move the experiments from one project to another one to consolidate them all into one?

Do all the subdomains have a completely different UX structure? If not I recommend keeping it under one project for ease of tracking. PS: You can always use URL_targetting for each experiment to control which page/subdomain gets to see the experiment.

Re: best practice for multiple subdomains

they are different part of our site which have different UX, yeah. let me give you a few examples
blog.domain.com is a wordpress blog
support.domain.com is a knowledge base
landing.domain.com is landing pages we use for adwords
domain.com is main landing page

now, would you recommend having them all under one project?

Well it still sounds like you would like to measure the user experience across the domain, as it sounds like one user could be jumping between subdomains easily. Nothing like asia.domain.com, europe.domain.com.

Because of this I would stick with on project, it will make things much easier when implementing goals and giving the user the same experience across your website. e.g. any users coming from a specific adword campaign would have a specific banner throughout the site to help them convert.

You would want to use the "Duplicate" feature. It will prompt you if you want to copy the experiment into the same project or into another.
