Direct Traffic to Variant - Counted in experiment or excluded?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello Optimize experts,

 

I set up a redirect test with Optimize and am planning to send all my traffic to page A.

 

From page A, I set up a test to do a 50/50 split of traffic to page A (Original) and page B (Variant) 

 

Everything is working fine from what I can see; the only question I have is what happens to the traffic that goes directly to page B? (Not redirected from A to B) The Optimize tag is installed on both pages, as instructed by the documentation.

 

Will traffic going directly to page B be counted in the experiment or will it be excluded? 

 

Thanks!

Traffic that goes directly to page B won't be counted in the experiment; just traffic to page A.  Hope that helps!
