I'm working on a small project that will likely run on Wordpress, I always like to run some split testing to improve conversion rates for various goals. Typically if its a small site that I either don't have a budget for or want to keep it as inexpensive as possible I use Google Website Optimizer if I do have a budget I go with Visual Website Optimizer both are great and affordable, but for fun I was checking out alternatives and found Genetify which is an open source project and has some neat features. In searching around I don't see many people talking about it and wondered if anyone here has used it. If so what do you think about it?

This seems open-ended. So it may be more appropriate to make this a community wiki. – Lèse majesté Oct 21 '10 at 17:21
Thanks for the heads up, I'm relatively new here and don't see a way to move it. Perhaps I need more rep for that? – Joshak Oct 21 '10 at 17:47
Thanks for the info, when I edit there's no community wiki check box. – Joshak Oct 22 '10 at 13:17
Nobody? Even with the bounty??? – Frank Nov 8 '10 at 8:25

In the past, I've done limited A/B testing and just used a modulus operator on the page to split on a random number. Then I showed one or the other items, and tracked in the log file...

Not ideal I know.

I did see this though that may give you more info down the path you're looking for...


It mentions a comparison between google and genetify...
