Does Content Experiments Reports Real Time?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi 

 

I have a few frustrating questions that I need answers for:

 

Would like to know how content experiments check for conversions? 

Do we need to have the experiment code on the conversion thank you page too?

If my conversions are showing OK why Experiments is showing 0 conversions?

Does it take 24 hrs for experiments data to populate as well or it gets recorded real time?

 

Thanks for all your help.

Hi Google A,

Answers inline:

Would like to know how content experiments check for conversions?
A: The conversion is determined in the experiment setup and follows the normal GA calcualtions for Goals, transactions, engagement...

Do we need to have the experiment code on the conversion thank you page too?
A; No, only on the A page.

If my conversions are showing OK why Experiments is showing 0 conversions?
A: Are you looking at conversions for which the experiment was set? Also, see below.

Does it take 24 hrs for experiments data to populate as well or it gets recorded real time?
A: This depends partly on how much data you are already collecting but the data is not complete until all processing is done so 24-48 hours. The help docs actually reads:

"After your experiment has been running for a few days, you can see data both on the experiment list and in the experiment report."

Hope that helps.
