Which URL targeting should I use for my experiment ?

When you are creating an experiment in Convertize, you can change the URL where you want the experiment to run. You can access this parameter when you are in the editing room and click on the “Options” button located at the bottom left of your screen.

Each URL match you enter can be one of five types:

URL contains: The URL you enter contains at least the parameter you have specified

Example: Let’s imagine the parameter is a=1, the following URL will match
http://www.mywebsite.com/a=1
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/a=1
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/subpage/a=1

The following one will not match
http://www.mywebsite.com/
http://www.mywebsite.com/page
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/subpage

URL does not contain: The URL you have entered does not contain the URL or parameters you have specified.

Example: If the parameter is www.mywebsite.com/page, the following URLs will match:

http://www.mywebsite.com/
http://www.mywebsite.com/a=1
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/category/page/

The following URLs will not match:

http://www.mywebsite.com/page
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/subpage
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/a=1

URL is: This is the best match to use when you test on a single page. Please note you must include http or https at the start of the url for the page to match.

Example:
http://www.mywebsite.com/page

URL starts with: The URL starts exactly as you specify it and must start with http or https.  This will match a URL that has any parameter after what you’ve specified.

Example:
http://www.mywebsite.com/page
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/subpage
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/subpages/a=1

URL ends with: The URL end with the text you specified

Example: let’s imagine the text you specify is mypage/ , the following URL will match
http://www.mywebsite.com/mypage/
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/mypage/
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/subpage/mypage/

But the following URL will not match:
http://www.mywebsite.com/mypage/a=1
http://www.mywebsite.com/page/mypage/subpage/

URL matches pattern: You can use this match type for a complicated URL that can’t be set up by the other targeting listed above.

Example: Let’s imagine the pattern you specified is : /product/(.*)/purchase, the following URL will match
http://www.mywebsite.com/product/toaster/purchase
http://www.mywebsite.com/product/35/purchase

The following URL will not match
http://www.mywebsite.com/product/toaster
