Will Optimize append ValueTrack parameters to Variant URL on Redirect Experiment?

We are using ValueTrack parameters for some of our adwords and we'd like to set up some Redirect experiments with landing page designs using Optimize and we were wondering if the ValueTrack parameters would be pushed through Optimize to the Variant landing page. We have set up Dynamic Keyword Insertion and need to ensure that this functionality isn't broken when the user is pushed to the variant page.

 

So... If the Original URL had a value of https://www.testsite.com/adwords/original.html?keyword=searchphrase, would Optimize successfully run the experiment and push the user to the varient and include the valuetrack parameter, resulting in a URL of https://www.testsite.com/adwords/variant.html?keyword=searchphrase  ???

 

We're already aware on how to leverage Targeting to ensure that the dynamic URL doesn't affect the experiment. We just haven't found anything in the Help documentation that mentions ValueTrack parameters. 

 

Thanks!

Per the "additional considerations" section at the bottom of the "Create a redirect test" HC article:

https://support.google.com/optimize/answer/6361119#additional-considerations

 

"If the original page has query parameters, they will be carried across and appended to the redirected page."

 

Hope that helps. 

 

Best,
