Second year in a row: 9 award winning A/B and Multivariate tests

Posted in News on February 21st, 2013

WhichTestWonWhichTestWon is a website that features results of A/B tests and visitors can vote which version of a page won. This gamification of A/B tests has resulted in a huge community built around the website and the active discussions after each test are a testament to that. At the end of the year, they conduct the Online Testing Awards, where they select A/B test entries deemed most useful for marketers and optimization specialists.

Last year during the Online Testing Awards 2012, Visual Website Optimizer was the A/B testing software used by 9 award winners across multiple categories. The smashing bit is that we’ve repeated the performance this year too! Visual Website Optimizer is the testing tool used by 9 award winners in the Online Testing Awards 2013, more than any other tool that participated.

The thought process and reason for these awards is something that we completely agree with – to inspire marketing professionals by showcasing A/B tests that can be immediately applied on their own websites. What they were also looking to do was highlighting those that go against intuition and best practices.

Without further ado, here are the tests that used Visual Website Optimizer.

Nearly everyone who markets online says that conversions are one of the most important parts of making money online. I am still at the stage of perfect a system that works well before I can get into A/B conversions. I look forward to having a good read through your blog to find out more about this science as I am getting to the stage where I will need to start split testing myself.
