Split testing is the compass that points you in the direction of experiences to optimize. Split testing is the backbone of innovation in your business. Why not do it on a platform that testers have loved using for more than 10 years.
Ideally each change you make to your site should go through your A/B testing machine. In the real world, you split test the older version of your site against your shiny new design to understand the impact on metrics that matter.
Your store theme can make or break your buyers’ experience. It’s the difference between added to cart and bounced from page. It’s also notoriously difficult to quantify for performance. Split testing is a good start.
Go beyond adding and removing trust symbols. How about changing the way your checkout behaves? How about testing checkout apps and customization? This is possible, with split testing.
Got a breakthrough you know will improve sign-ups, boost revenue or make retention a reality? Create a Minimum Viable version of your brainwave and split test it against the original. If the numbers you want to move, actually move, you have a data driven case for the C-suite. Split testing will vouch for your “best ideas”.
Split URL testing isn’t meant for headline swaps and button color changes. You crave to conduct sweeping, strategic experiments with it. We let you do that.
With plans starting at USD $499/month.
For the perfectionists and last minute planners. We got your back. Your split test candidates could do with some style tweaks right? Don’t go running to Dev. Apply changes to the experiences by running a Deploy on top of a split URL test. The best part? Deploys are drag and drop. You’ll get it done all on your own.
Need multiple (original) URLs to point to a host of variations? While passing query parameters along the way.
This complex scenario is possible with Convert Experiences.
Split tests are about going broad in scope. And accurate in targeting. We give you an advanced drag & drop targeting engine where you can mix and match 40+ filters to create segments by:
Split URL tests demand exhaustive monitoring. Since so many new inputs are introduced, all at the same time, you should not only track a primary KPI, but also secondary goals, and guardrails to ensure nothing is broken by the interventions.
We don’t know the specs of your tech stack. But from simple to downright scary, whatever you’ve got going on behind the scenes, Convert Experiences can work with it.
We aren't afraid of a little competition.

Where the client has never done any testing before, we typically look first to use Convert (convert.com). I like Convert for a number of reasons. From the very beginning, it has been one of the easiest tools to integrate with Google Analytics. Also, for tricky variations, I’ve had better luck with Convert than others (Optimizely) at getting the variation to display just the way we want. And the support at Convert has always been excellent—again, better than most of their competitors.Tom Bowen
I appreciated the transparency in pricing and the free trial. Having looked into a few similar solutions, it took weeks of back and forth with demos, multiple phone calls, etc. before the other companies would finally quote me a price. In the end, the other solutions were 2-3X the cost and required 12-month commitment. Convert publishes their pricing, let's you run through the entire interface with the free trial and offers month-to-month subscriptions.Chris Watts

What is Split URL testing?
A split test or a split URL test is often used interchangeably with an A/B test. This isn’t wholly accurate. While you would still compare two different versions of an element or an asset, in split testing the beauty lies in the simple execution and broad scope.
In a split URL test, in most cases, your A/B testing tool is in charge of splitting traffic between two URLs that already exist on your site. Some examples include:
What this means is the A/B testing tool is mostly exempt from manipulating the code and CSS of your website. That part is taken care of by your development team.
Yes, the variant pitched against the original may not be a high fidelity, fully functional version of the change you wish to see later down the line. But its delivery isn’t restricted to the code editor of your experimentation platform.
Split testing is thus more strategic. Think of it as a compass, pointing you in the direction of paths and experiences that are worth thinking granularly about and optimizing iteratively.
Another factor here is the scope of the experiment. If your old site competes against your newly redesigned website, you aren’t interested in minute 1% conversion lifts. You know there is a change. One that is likely to alter traffic response.
This is why you can use a wider net in statistical terms and go with a high MDE (Minimum Detectable Effect). This means, given the same traffic, your split tests will usually conclude faster than a more nuanced A/B test, as the lift will usually be stronger in either direction.
When should I use split testing and when can I opt for A/B tests?
Let’s keep this simple.
Use split testing when you aren’t interested in barely detectable shifts. When you know you’ve made a significant change to the status quo and you wish to see how the buyer response pendulum will swing.
Use A/B testing when you want to have a direct causal relationship between the change and the outcome. Many optimizers recommend adjusting only 1 element in an A/B test, so that with an adequate confidence level and the right sample size, you can be quite sure of the fact that your idea (the hypothesis) has indeed moved the needle – either positively or negatively. And the observed effect is not random noise.
While split testing helps you efficiently discard or adopt approaches, A/B testing is your reliable channel to finesse an approach and take it to the next level, learning about what works for your audience along the way.
Does split testing affect SEO?
To better understand the risks, let’s talk about cloaking.
Cloaking content was mentioned in the early days of search engines (around 1990s). In those days, SEO was all about keyword stuffing. So SEO agencies would display a page full of keywords when a search engine bot visited to crawl / index the page.
While if a user visited the same page, they displayed the default (normal) version. This strategy of keyword stuffing used to work like wonders so naturally search engines started devising clever ways to detect and penalize such cloaking. But thanks to Google’s PageRank algorithm, keyword stuffing no longer works.
But you still have to be mindful of the following when you redirect your traffic to your variant.
How is split testing useful in marketing?
Again, steer clear of advice where people talk about split testing headlines.
You can easily accomplish this with the Visual Editor and an A/B test. If you wish to experiment with combinations of elements spread out across variants .. that is a multivariate test.
Split tests are ideal for scenarios like:
