What if ‘what’s good for users’ isn’t good for Google? Combining CRO and SEO testing
Whilst CRO A/B testing is well established, SEO A/B testing is fairly new. Over the last few years, the Distilled team have run hundreds of SEO split-test experiments across dozens of sites, and we have learned a lot. Often we have found CRO teams and SEO teams working independently to optimise different halves of the same funnel, which means missed opportunities. We have recently started running ‘full funnel’ tests, that allow us to run a single test measuring the impact on search traffic and conversion rate.
In this session, Tom will introduce SEO A/B testing, highlight some interesting results from those tests, and share some preliminary results from the new full funnel methodology.
