Google Site Optimizer: Cannot Access Test Page Trying to setup split test with GSO - it cannot see my pages, though URL ok SEOtop10 msg:4301755 8:16 am on Apr 21, 2011 (gmt 0) 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. SEOtop10 msg:4303529 7:50 am on Apr 25, 2011 (gmt 0)
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.
