Everybody* knows that A/B testing best practices can help you run faster, jump higher and increase conversions. When it comes to providing users with an engaging and rewarding online experience, good A/B tests are a more effective treatment for embarrassing landing pages than topical ointment. However, approaches to designing multivariate tests that provide accurate and representative results can be uncertain at best and outright divisive at worst.

A/B testing is an invaluable tool for landing page optimization when implemented correctly. To minimize wasting time, money and effort on changes that will yield little to no benefit – or even make things worse – take the following points into consideration during your next project.

    Thanks, I’m glad you found the article useful.

    As for your question, that depends. SEO should be seen as an ongoing approach to content – you might not see noticeable results right away, but that doesn’t necessarily mean your strategy isn’t solid. Depending on what elements of your page you’re testing (and your site’s traffic, and several other factors), 30 days might be enough – but it might not.

    Regardless of what you’re testing, be sure to know why you’re testing, and what you expect to happen. Have a specific, measurable objective in mind. If you find that 30 days wasn’t enough time, at least you’ll have a better idea of what to change during your next test, whether it’s a different element, the length of the test etc.

    Best of luck with your testing!

    Well, its really helpful to do A/B testing. There are lots of techniques associated with its success. I agree that if done right, time, money, and energy would be saved.

    However, what readily matters is for the website owner to understand whether multivariate testing could be adopted to complement A/B testing for effectiveness!
