    Very good plugin. Simple and does what it should. I agree with DrInnovation’s review.

    A few notes for people that want to use it, there’s was a typo in the example (the / was missing in the last line) it should be:

    Sample content experiment:
    [experiment id="EXPERIMENT ID"]
          [ex_variant]
             content for first variation
          [/ex_variant]
          [ex_variant]
             content for second variation
          [/ex_variant]
      [/experiment]

    The plugin assumes there is no original, it will just switch between the variations, remember this when you create the experiment in Google Analytics (i.e. if you want to split-test between two variations, you have an original listed (a bogus listing) and two variations — the url’s you list don’t matter – but you also read that in the description “Content Experiments Without Redirects (Browser-only implementation)”).

    I was a bit confused, finally found the right way to set it up:

    When you set up your experiment in Experiments in Google Analytics, it will ask for an “Original Page” and a number of variations.
    If you take this terminology the Sample Content Experiment should read this (hopefully I’m not mistaken again):

    Sample content experiment:
    [experiment id="EXPERIMENT ID"]
          [ex_variant]
             content for what Google Analytics calls "Original Page"
          [/ex_variant]
          [ex_variant]
             content for what Google Analytics calls "Variation 1"
          [/ex_variant]
      [/experiment]
