In Nelio A/B Testing there are two types of A/B experiments:
- Experiments that modify a certain page or post, and whose alternatives only affect that very same page or post.
- Experiments that have a global impact on your website, such as:
- CSS or Theme experiments, which modify the look and feel of your website,
- Menu or Theme experiments, which modify elements that are common to several pages,
- or Headline experiments, where Headline alternatives are shown anywhere on your site.
- Force Consistency All Along the Site. All pages will request an alternative version, so that if they contain a reference to a tested element, the appropriate alternative of that element is shown. This setting might be a little bit slower (all pages trigger a "load alternative" request), but all the elements in your website will be consistent and the user experience will be better.
- Load Alternative Content for Tested Element Only. If consistency is not forced, alternative content will only be loaded when accessing a tested page or post. This setting might be faster (for the vast majority of pages/posts in your website, an alternative loading request will not be necessary).
