Do you do A/B testing on your affiliate sites?
Affiliates often have choices to make when building their sites. Do I feature Casino A or Casino B? Do I run Banner A or Banner B? Affiliates often make these decisions based on their opinion of what will work best. Sometimes affiliates will conduct actual tests comparing alternative approaches and measuring which one performs better. Do you ever perform actual tests comparing and measuring the performance of two or more alternative approaches? View poll
