a/b test your website content with google analytics

Knowing what content and UX design will trigger your users to take the action you aim for starts with research!  If you’ve already gotten feedback and analyzed your user statistics, it’s time to test your new designs.  Well thought out designs can be easily tested by taking a few minutes to set up a Google Analytics Content Experiment.

You should do this whether you are testing new copy writing, small changes to CTA placements or larger scale redesigns.

  • Define what percentage of your users are included in the experiment
