🔥 Optimize supports server-side experiments[ Edited ]
June 2017 - last edited June 2017
While creating client-side experiments in Optimize's visual editor is fun, power users clamor for more. Optimize now supports creating Server-side experiments.
Server-side implementations offer more flexibility to do things such as:
- Run experiments for websites with dynamic content.
- Test non-UI changes that still have an affect on your objective. For example, a database query result set that is returned to a user.
- Integrate Optimize experiments with your service (e.g. Content Management provider).
- Manage experiments using your own optimization platform.
This new guide explains how to use Optimize to report on experiments running on your server. Read about it in on the Optimize DevSite: https://developers.google.com/optimize/devguides/experiments.
NEW: Optimize supports server-side experiments
This is a great feature, and I'm sure someone using Optimize will make good use of it. As a suggestion, could Google please distribute at least a little more attention to this forum? Optimize is still relatively new, and especially for paying customers, the FAQ is simply not enough to address fundamental concerns. There are many legitimate questions with no response in this forum, and I'd assume it's rather important to at least provide some direction for the people who post them.
