redirect experiment flickers and takes time to load

Hi!

I'm running an experiment when the variation is a redirection to another page. Whenever the variation should work, it shows the original version first and only after two seconds redirects to the variation. Tried to look at the knowledge base and couldn't figure out how to fix this.

this is where I run the test:

Any idea what causes this? obviously it affects the experiment.

Thanks

Re: redirect experiment flickers and takes time to load

By my count, there are 51 items that load before the Optimizely snippet.
The delay you see is because all of those things are loading (or at least starting to load) before Optimizely starts.

The Optimizely snippet should be the *very* first thing in your <head>, even above that &lt;script&gt; block that sets variables such as "upload_document "
