Ed - did you implement this?

Hi all!

Thanks for your answers. So, I'm thinking about making a new extension
to allow doing simple A/B testing with Google Optimizer. The plan
would be something like:

- In the admin panel I show the pages where I can to do A/B (for
example, the landing page).
- The I have an option to duplicate the view of that page (i.e if I
have www.example.com/offer , I create www.example.com/offer_b)
- And then I change the code of the view the way I like, so finally I
can use the Google Optimizer with them.

I think that this would work with static pages, but how would you do
it to use it with pages like the product ones, where we have things
from the database? (like the price).
Moreover, how would you deal with the partials in order to clone the
view (If you just want to show all the HTML, let's suppose that
somebody that just knows HTML would change this code). I don't know if
I'm explaining it well...
Thanks in advance,

Ed.

I'm not aware of anyone (at least publicly) using AB to test complex

Hi folks!
I wonder if there's any extension/approach to do A/B testing in Spree.
It would be perfect to combine it with the Google Optimizer AB tests.
What do you think? How would you face this task? Ideas?
Thanks in advance ... and MARRY CHRISTMAS! ;) Wish the best for you

    I don't think AB Testing is something that really makes for an extension
    since most of your experiments are all going to be unique to your own
    business.

    I also use Split and find that it works really well, and is really easy to
    setup. The only problem I have with Split is that it doesn't track
    conversions over time it just tracks the conversions. Working on
    integrating Split with the Google Content Experiments API at the moment and
    will let you know how it goes.

    With that said I highly recommend you roll your own AB Testing into your
    Spree application using something such as Split or another library.
