A/B See

Description

Want to start a split-test right away? Choose a unique test id, provide a piece of code for the first group and a piece of code for the second, and define an id to indicate a conversion.

For example, let’s define a split test called clothes. In the first group, we’ll say “Your clothes are red.” In the second group, we’ll say “Your clothes are black.” When we convert, we’ll use the id clothes_complete.

Then, we’ll do this on our test page:

<a href=”convert.php”>[ab-see id=clothes]</a>

And on the page we want to get to:

[ab-convert id=clothes_complete]

That’s it!

Inspired by the practice of copying the smartest people you know, AB-See is based on Patrick McKenzie’s A/Bingo (http://www.bingocardcreator.com/abingo) and Ben Kamens’ GAE/Bingo (http://bjk5.com/post/10171483254/a-bingo-split-testing-now-on-app-engine-built-for).

Built for our A/B testing needs at Scent Trunk (https://scenttrunk.com).

Screenshots

  • The A/B See admin panel. Lists tests by active/inactive, check out impressions and conversions, and edit tests if necessary.
  • An example of a split test with different text.

Installation

Place all the files in a directory inside of wp-content/plugins (for example, ab-see), and activate the plugin.

FAQ

Why is my test not working?

Tests are not enabled by default after being created! Make sure your test is enabled,
and that you have the correct test id in the ab-see shortcode.

How can I test that both groups are working?

You can amend the group_override parameter to force tests to use a particular group. For example,
http://scenttrunk.com?group_override=1 will force tests from the first group to show, and
http://scenttrunk.com?group_override=2 will force tests from the second group.

Reviews

Simple, out of the box, free

I am familiar with the old Google Website optimizer and also used optimizely.com some weeks ago. But sometimes, you want something easy to configure and without external service.

This plugin does the job in a great way. Easy to understand how to configure. My first test took me less than 10 Minutes, comparing to versions of a sliders.

It would be interesting to understand, how persistent versions are delivered to customers. I had the impressions, it’s locked to the IP, because new devices and browser still shown the same version.

Thanks for sharing this!!
