Configuration: Google API - Google Website Optimizer

System > Configuration > Sales > Google API - Google Website Optimizer

Google Website Optimizer is a free tool that is used to test the effectiveness of one page against another. Such “A/B”tests can be used to test designs, concepts, the positioning and wording of promotions, and the presentation of products in your store. The Google Website Optimizer configuration setting is used to enable or disable Google Website Optimizer for your product and category pages. When enabled, the “Product View Optimization” tab appears on all product and category pages so you can enter Google Website Optimizer scripts.
