Google Website Optimizer looks like a good tool for copy testing, I am thinking on implementing it on the homepage of the site that gets most of the organic traffic. Question is: with all the javascript injected in the page, will it have effect on how bots analyze the page? I don't think it should, but I'd want to be sure before fiddling with my most important page. Anybody tried this?

genem, here's some info for you - quoted from the AdWords Help Center:

Website Optimizer is designed to keep your original content visible in the HTML source code of your page at all times. As a result, your original content is visible to crawlers, which means there should be no major impact on search engine ranking. However, if you implement changes to your content after using Website Optimizer, they'll have the same effects as any content changes that you would typically make to your website.
