Using multiple destination URL's for split-testing on product detail page

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'm trying to set up an split URL/redirect experiment for al the product detail pages (PDP's) of our webshop. 

 

Where can I set up the pattern that de control group are all the URL's containing /*05.aspx (which are all the PDP's) and the Variant 1 all URL's /*05.aspx?paramater_of_the_B_variant.

 

Can someone help me?

 

Thanks!

Hi Guillaume,

 

I did figure this out in the end, or at least my own misunderstanding of how the tool works.

 

When you provide a value for the "Editor page" field, it tells the Google Optimize tool to use this page as the basis for any changes you want to occur as part of your A/B testing.

 

You then later use the "Targeting" tab to determine what pages this is targeted at.

 

I hope this makes sense and also solves your issue.

 

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Marc,

 

Did you figure this out in the end or are you still working on a solution?

 

I too have the same issue.

Hi,

Same issue here...

Seems that it's not possible to set up a pattern of multiple url.

The only way is to create a redirect test for 1 url by 1 url.

Hi Paul,

I hope that you figured out how to do it, but, I still don't understand it.

I think "Targeting" determines when the test starts, if our user fits our condition, then they will be led to Variant-B (or something like that).

 

I'm stuck and don't know how to do, this is my case:

I want to test a layout of the Product list page, the original has 4 images in a row, the variant has 3 images in a row.

Original pages: mysite.com/sales/[sale id xxxx]

Variant pages: mysite.com/sales3/[sale id xxxx]

 

Do you know how we can do it with Google Optimise? 

 

Please let me know if you know how to.

 

Cheers,

Hi Trong,

Just came across this thread as I am having the same issue as explained above. Did you manage to find a way to do this within Google Optimize?

 

Thanks,

Hi all,

 

We're having the same issue here.

 

We want to test an alternative layout which is activated by appending a query string to the URL, i.e.

 

Original URL: www.mysite.com/products/category/

Variant URL: www.mysite.com/products/category/?l=1000

 

In the GO interface I can add ?l=1000 as the redirection URL and the GO interface shows the final URL as being correct but when I then go to preview this instead of just appending ?l=1000 to the URL it redirects back to the homepage with that appended on to it instead.

 

It is incredibly frustrating. Did anyone find a solution?

 

Thanks,

Alex

Hi All,

 

Did anyone find a solution for this?  We would love to be able to test all pages in a particular path.

I was facing a similar problem - here's the workaround I found 

- Create an A/B test (not Redirect) 
- Set your targeting to Host and enter in your domain, alternatively manually match the URLs you want to include
- Add a new Variant, then set it's URL to one of the pages in your experiment
- Inside that variant, select the body tag > Edit Element > Run Javascript > enter whatever redirect logic you need > set 'After opening tag' option.

Because the targeting fires on all pages, it will execute the custom JS code anywhere there is a body tag, within your target filter.

In my case, the custom JS includes an array of original:redirect_destination URLs. On load, it checked if the current page location was in the array and if so, redirects to the relevant destination.

 

It's kinda dodgy and unfortunately not as fast as a real redirect test, but my hand was forced.
