Redirection of URLs in Same Domain + Google AB Testing

[ Edited ]

Hello, 

 

Lets say I have a url which is www.something.com/page-1/ and another www.something.com/page-2/

  1. Both page 1 and page 2 are of the same domain something.com
  2. I would need to have an AB testing done, also keeping in mind that one of them has a google adwords setup done.
  3. Would it be acceptable to have a redirection process in this particular case [as long as they are on the same base domain something.com] but would have to show different pages depending upon the result of the AB testing code from google.

Looking forward to your revert(s)! Thanks!

Hi Sricharan,
 
As far as I know, it's acceptable, but both the domains must match after all redirects.

Hello Rajat,

Thank you for your revert. I did have a look at that url that you had sent. Doesn't seem to be too clear.

I ll probably go ahead with your advice.

 

Lets see if I can get more replies for my post as well.

 

Have a nice day.

Hi @Sricharan K,

 

I would need to have an AB testing done, also keeping in mind that one of them has a google adwords setup done.

I did not get what do you mean by "one of them has a google adwords setup done".

 

Would it be acceptable to have a redirection process

If you will use redirection of the url then it will not be A/B testing.

 

To test both the urls, you need to keep running both.

You can duplicate the ads, change the url of new ones and keep them running(with both urls).
