Meet Convert Experiences. Not a free tool. But "free" is great only when it's not a roadblock.
If lack of targeting, goals, support, or app transparency are a problem now, give us a try!
How does it feel when you are stymied by that 5 concurrent tests limit? Do you wish you could track more goals per variant to understand the impact of your hypothesis along the funnel? How about not knowing if features you want are on Google's roadmap?
Optimize is a great choice for teams just starting out. But if you're tired of rubbing up against limits, it's time to move to a platform that has enterprise grade A/B testing features.. with respect for user privacy, 4x faster, human support, and the simplest sign-up process.

Convert Experiments is a fantastic tool that should be considered and evaluated by any CRO agency or end-user client that also evaluates Optimizely and VWO.
Julien Le Nestourvia CXL
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.
Either your A/B testing tool blinks. Or it doesn’t. There are no ifs and buts here. Convert Experiences uses a patent pending technology SmartInsert™ Protection to prevent blinking, out of the box. No need to install an anti-flicker snippet.
You get 90 plus out of the box integrations to cover every conceivable optimization requirement. And we add relevant software options to this list every quarter. Result altering insights are just a click away!
Convert Experiences has supported 40 billion tests and personalizations for 5000+ sites. And we’re still here. You can now partner with a conscious business that knows the industry and pivots to protect your testing efforts.
Some of the best CRO agencies in the world work with Convert Experiences. We have collaborated with Conversion Rate Experts, Conversion Fanatics, Tinuiti, and JourneyFurther.
But we understand that making the shift from free needs a bit of persuasion.
Your clients can now enjoy a higher test velocity in their program. Timely support makes a big difference. And we do not keep you tied up in tickets. With us all your time is billed to get them conversion lifts.
While nothing has the appeal of a free A/B testing tool, our pricing is transparent, and our plans start at $699 per month. It’s an affordable shift for a much better feature set and blazing fast support.
The lightweight Convert script allows for fast and flicker-free testing on client sites. Confidently tackle the question of "Will testing hurt my SERPs?" and make CRO play nice with SEO.
At Speero, most of the sites we work with have a rather large number of visitors, generating millions of hits every month. Naturally, most of those sites have Google Analytics and not all of them have the premium GA360 version. This means that sampling is a problem we deal with on daily basis, especially when analyzing the results of A/B tests using custom segments. Be it Optimize or some other tool, sampling is still a problem when it comes to analyzing this data in Google Analytics. That being said, the numbers you see within Google Optimize's reports are not sampled but those don't allow for any advanced analysis. While data in Google Optimize reports isn't sampled and it doesn't say it clearly in its ToC, I believe that this data is still being affected by the data collection limits mentioned in Google Analytics ToC. This belief is supported by the fact that Optimize is based on the same dataset as is Google Analytics and we've seen some rather weird numbers in Optimize for sites that receive massive amounts of hits (100 million and more a month).
Silver Ringvee, CTO, Speero
The number of users displayed in the various Google Analytics reports is not an exact count of the number of users which have been logged as performing actions on a website for any given time frame. To get a bit technical – they do not show the counts of unique cookies / browsers / GA client IDs present in the GA session logs
Instead, what is shown as numbers of users in these reports is a probabilistic estimate of the true number of users.
We have migrated, all the customers we initially planned to migrate (two of them). Thanks to the no-limits on Convert compared to Google Optimize. If it was not for Convert we would not have been able to retain those customers.
The features and support are only part of the story.
In today's market tech is duplicated.
That's why we are betting on who we are to set us apart.
Convert is a Conscious Business.
This means we only work with companies that do not cause harm to the planet, don't spread hate and divisiveness, and do not suppress the rights and freedom of under-served communities.
Most importantly, we put our money where our mouth is.We are the only Climate Neutral certified A/B testing tool out there.
And a portion of our monthly revenue goes towards our goal of being 100x climate positive.
So if partnering with a fun, async and “remote since 2010” team of passionate purpose driven individuals sounds like your thing, sign up for a Deploy free trial.
Does Google Optimize Offer Server-Side Options?
Yes. Google Optimize offers a server-side experimentation option.
What Does Google Optimize 360 Cost?
Google Optimize 360 is described as a “premium A/B testing solution”.
Pricing information across sources is quite contradictory. But it may be anywhere between a 100k USD per year and 150k USD per year.
How to Find a Google Optimize Alternative?
Want more? We’ve written a blog walking you through the process of purchasing an A/B testing tool alternative.
Is Google Optimize Good?
Google Optimize is by Google.
It does a good job of introducing A/B testing to marketers and brands. Plus, the integration with Google Analytics understandably is far superior than other solutions out there.
Google Optimize scores an 8.7 out of 10 when it comes to the factor of Ease of Use. According to G2Crowd, this number is 8.5 as an average across A/B testing tools.
It scores 4.6 out of 10 for Support, in comparison to the industry average of 9.
And lastly, it scores 8.2 for Ease of Set-Up, while other A/B testing solutions score an 8.5.
Is Google Optimize Free?
There is a completely free-to-use version of Google Optimize for brands and testers just getting started. However, keep in mind that Google Optimize also has a premium version of its product, Optimize 360.
The free version of Google Optimize is not meant to be your forever testing platform. It has several in-built restrictions that keep optimizers from scaling with the tool.
Most CRO agencies use Optimize to prove the worth of A/B testing, before onboarding clients to other, more robust optimization solutions that serve their diverse testing needs.
