A/B split testing What's the deal? moose606 msg:679071 2:51 pm on May 21, 2006 (gmt 0) I am considering some A/B split testing. This uses redirects to different versions of a home page, for example, and then tracks conversions. Is this considered cloaking? If so, what do all the major players do for split testing (ie: Dell, Amazon)?

But, it might be considered "using sneaky redirects".

Their pages are written dynamically. There is no need for redirection.

Thanks. What is a static site supposed to do if they want to do split testing? volatilegx msg:679074 1:56 am on May 23, 2006 (gmt 0)
Maybe you could use Server Side Includes to do it?
