Overall Satisfaction with Google Optimize

Google Optimize is being used to optimize our live websites for conversion. We are working through a website optimization project where the last step of that process is to optimize. In conjunction with other research methods, we utilize Google Optimize for A/B and multivariate testing. We'll also start using Google Optimize for preliminary personalization on our websites.
  • Easy user interface that can be picked up on fast.
  • Fairly easy troubleshooting when it comes to proper code placement and configuration.
  • Fantastic reporting that clearly explains when your test has reached statistical significance.
  • Great options for really granular targeting.
  • Superb integration with Google Analytics.
  • The free version limits you to only 3 tests running at a time.
  • Sometimes page flicker can occur and implementing the page hiding snippet via GTM is rather difficult.
  • We were able to increase our main KPI for conversions by almost 50% by testing button copy.
  • We were able to increase secondary KPIs for conversions by almost 30% by testing form design.
Google Optimize is great for those who have Google Analytics as their web analytics provider. It's also a great experimentation tool for those just beginning A/B and multivariate testing in their organization or even small business.
