Google Website Optimizer Takes the Guess Work out of Site Design

When you make changes to your site design, it’s not always easy to figure out how the changes affect traffic and visitor behavior. That’s where the Google Website Optimizer tool comes into play.

The typical site design process involves some people sitting together and choosing the design they think is best.

This kind of import process requires some conversions to solve file format differences; otherwise, it would be impossible to share data, or file contents would be imported incorrectly.
