Why Google Optimizer

Google Optimizer allows you to experiment with keywords, phrases and full articles to find out which text is the most useful. To do this, multiple pages (tracking pages) need to be setup with identical text that all point to one final page - the conversion page. Google counts the number of visitors arriving on the conversion page from each tracking page.

Why this plugin?

This plugin allows you to easily insert simple tags that will be replaced dynamically with JavaScript-code. This saves you time and also bypasses certain JavaScript-filters (for instance the ones present in the TinyMCE editor).


Help on the usage of Google Optimizer itself can be found here.
