\subsection{ Definition }

An experimental approach to web design (especially user experience design), which aims to identify changes to web pages that increase or maximize an outcome of interest. (Wikipedia)

A/B Testing is a simple way to test changes to your page against the current design and determine which ones produce positive result. It is a method to validate that any new design or change to an element on your webpage is improving your conversion rate before you make that change to your site code.

\subsection{Conversion Rate }

In internet marketing, the conversion rate is the proportion of visitors to a website who take action to go beyond a casual content view or website visit, as a result of subtle or direct requests from marketers, advertisers, and content creators.\href{/index.php/File:Conversion_rate.png}{

\subsection{ Steps }
	\item Determine a target
	\item Come up with hypothesis of factors
	\item Build a variation page
	\item Show the two pages randomly to users. 
	\item Compare conversion rate of both sites.

\subsection{ Tips }
	\item Test your software: Before you do the A/B testing, do an A/A testing first.
	\item Focus on one goal per page: More than one goal will mix the testing result.
	\item Test small elements: Small elements can also bring amazing conversion rate.
	\item Do not expect large results from small changes: If all testing results are not satisfying, maybe it is time to change the whole interface. A/B testing is not omnipotence for developing conversion rate.
	\item A/B Testing has its limitations: It only gives data, reasons are not included.
