How to check whether your A/B Testing is working

In this article, we are going to learn how to find out if an A/B testing campaign is running properly.

By Refreshing the URL

Step 1: Copy the shared URL of the Original and Variation pages in the A/B Testing campaign.

 

 

Step 2: Enter the link into a private or incognito window of the browser you are using.

 

Step 3: Refresh the page several times. If you see both the Orginal and the Variation pages popping up, it means the campaign is running as normal.

By using GemPages' Page IDs

Step 1: Look for the page IDs of both the Original and the Variation pages when accessing GemPages' Editor. 

 

 

Step 2: Copy the shared URL of the Original and Variation pages in the A/B Testing campaign.

 

 

Step 3: Enter the link into a private or incognito window of the browser you are using.

 

 

Step 4: Right-click and select Inspect

 

 

Step 5: Select the Application tab, search for Cookies in the left sidebar and choose the current link. 

 

 

Step 6: Input "state" to the search bar. The number you see under the Value column is the current variation's Page ID.

 

 

Step 7: Replace it with the other Page ID, and if that other variation appears, rest assured that your campaign is running normally.
