What if you want to test two COMPLETELY different versions of a page on your site? The best way to do this is to create "split URL" experiments that simply redirect a visitor to a different URL in different variations.
Redirect experiments function a little differently from other Optimizely A/B experiments. When you create a redirect experiment, use this checklist to make sure that you've set it up correctly. For each section, we've given you links to our knowledge base for you to learn more.
|Basic setup: select Redirect to a new page from the Variation menu||Setup|
|URL Targeting infinite loops: make sure your URL Targeting doesn't capture both the original and redirect URLs||Setup: URL Targeting|
|Goals: Set up Goal Targeting if you're tracking a click goal on the redirect page||Tracking Clicks (Goal Targeting)|
|URL Modifications: Customize the experiment if you want to modify the URL upon redirect|
