Google Site Optimizer: Cannot Access Test Page
Trying to setup split test with GSO - it cannot see my pages, though URL ok

I am trying to setup split test with GSO - it cannot see my original page and the conversion page though it can reach the variation page fine.

My page are like this:

Original page:
www.example.com/getaquote/index.htm

Variation page:
www.example.com/getaquote/index1.htm

Conversion page:
www.example.com/thanks/index.htm

I ignored the error and proceeded to implement the JS code for the test. It cannot validate that the code is placed fine because it cannot access the URL. I can successfully click at the URL it shows to load the page in question.

I am stumped. If Google cannot see my pages for some reason (it is an old established site), how can it see the variation page?

Any clues?

TIA.

Just to clarify, I have run split tests successfully on other sites.

This is an Apache based site running PHP pages that have .htm extensions.

I managed to solve this problem. We had setup the site to reject all incoming page requests with blank user-agent. Google Website Optimizer was requesting the web page with a blank user-agent string.

Humble advice to Google: Please use some user-agent.
