How To Carry Out Split Test With BetterLinks Dynamic Redirects? #

Follow the step-by-step guidelines given below to learn how to use BetterLinks dynamic redirects to carry out split tests. 

Note: Make sure to install and activate BetterLinks Pro as well as the free version of BetterLinks on your website.

Step 1: Redirect The Main Landing Page #

You must have two offer pages (or more) and a goal landing page (we are using ‘Main Landing Page’ as the name for the link here for tutorial purposes) on your website to carry out split tests with BetterLinks Dynamic Redirects. The offer pages are the web pages where you will provide the redirect link (through a hyperlink or call-to-action buttons) and the main landing page is where the user will be redirected to.

In order to carry out the split test, you need to create a shortened, redirect link for the main landing page. Check out this documentation to learn how to shorten and redirect a URL effortlessly with BetterLinks

Step 5: Analyze Split Test #

Now, copy the shortened URL and use it wherever needed for your marketing campaigns. This shortened or redirected URL will carry out a split test and redirect users to both offer pages in rotation according to the percentages you set. When your visitors click on the goal URL (found in buttons or hyperlinks) on these offer pages, they will be seamlessly redirected to the main landing page you have selected. Then, it will count as a conversion.

Check the number of clicks from the BetterLinks –> Manage Links tab, as shown below. It will help you determine how your links/offers are performing in the campaign.

If you click on the ‘split’ icon on the redirected link, it will take you to the  BetterLinks Analytics interface, where you can check the click-through rates, the number of unique clicks, and the conversion rates for each URL, both graphically and as a list.

Step 6: Check Split Test Results #

BetterLinks will choose the link as the winner, which has the most conversion rates. Please note that, your visitors may get redirected to any of the offer pages you add in the ‘Split Test’ tab. But, from the pages they click the ‘Goal Link’ will be counted as conversion. So, the most number of clicks from a particular page to the ‘Goal Link’ will be selected as the winner.

Step 7: Expire Split Test #

From the ‘Split Test’ window, you can also choose to expire it upon the number of clicks you set. To do that, check the ‘Expire Split Test’ button, set the number of clicks you want before it expires, and choose the type of clicks (unique or generic clicks).
