Convert Experiments™ provides advanced A/B and MVT Testing functionality for your website or blog.

== Description ==

A/B testing for WordPress now possible and simple. This plugin is a combined effort by both Convert and Yoast.
It will enable your WordPress installation for use with the Convert Experiments™ conversion optimization suite.
On top of that, you'll be able to register for a free [special Yoast account on Convert.com](http://www.convert.com/yoast/),
giving you some nice extras.

The plugin will automatically send the page type, page name, category name, category ID, and tags to Convert Experiments.
A/B testing on any set of categories or pages is then easy with the advanced filtering and segmentation during test
configuration.

> You'll need a [Convert Experiments account](http://www.convert.com/yoast/) to use this plugin.  Once you have that,  A/B tests are easy to
> setup without any technical knowledge. If you set up an account through this link, you'll get a special Convert Yoast account, which has:
>
> 1. Free 5,000 tested visitors per month for 12 months
> 2. Free A/B and Split URL testing
> 3. Upgrade discounts to paid plans

<h4>What does the plugin do?</h4>

At a high level, this plugins sole purpose is to quickly install a small block of javascript onto each page of your
WordPress installation. The installed javascript is necessary for the Convert Experiments suite to perform its
A/B, split URL and multivariate functionality on your blog.

With some slight variations (based on the type of page being viewed: home, single, category, tag, or page), the
inserted javascript will look like the following:

`<!-- begin Convert Experiments code--><script type="text/javascript">var _conv_host = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://d9jmv9u00p0mv.cloudfront.net" : "http://cdn-1.convertexperiments.com");document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + _conv_host + "/js/1-4.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));</script><!-- end Convert Experiments code -->`
