L'ouvrage présente efficacement les outils offerts par Google pour réaliser test A/B, multivariantes, etc.
Au delà des outils et logiciels, c'est une source intarissable d'exemples, de conseils, d'outils et de méthodes concrètes et faciles à mettre en oeuvre pour réussir l'optimisation d'un site web.
Plus que l'explication des outils techniques Google Website Optimizer, c'est finalement cette expérience e-marketing partagée et ces méthodologies qui font de cet ouvrage une véritable référence.

I read through it very quickly although I didn't apply all the exercises. I'm a web designer, so I already had a familiar ground with a lot of the stuff discussed and could imagine how much of the things would improve a website because a lot of theme are things I also apply to my own design work. However, there was still a lot of information that was new to me and I had never did testing with Google Optimizer before so that whole first section of the book talking about that was very important for me as well.
I would say, to get the most out of this book, you need to take time to go through all the questions and exercises in the second section of the book. There are a lot of really useful tips, but in order to thoroughly understand them, you really need to apply them and do some experimentation of your own in a live environment. As with anything you learn, you need to take the concepts and make them your own in order to master them and this is no different.
The authors explain the difference between A/B tests (comparing the performance of two or more pages) and Multivariate tests (comparing the performance of multiple components within a page). But be aware that as of August 1, 2012, Google Website Optimizer has been replaced by Content Experiments and the multivariate functions are no longer available.
Regardless of the tool du jour, "technology alone won't give you optimal results... Knowing what to test is still more important than having the ability to do so as cheaply, quickly, and easily as you can today." Part II explains the factors that improve conversion and offers ideas on what you can test, such as headlines, the color of your Buy Now button, and the order content is presented. "Methodical customers do value product specifications... However, these customers will look for the information, so you needn't place it front and center."
The authors warn that best practices should be used only as guidelines, not rules. "Someone else's best practice can be your disaster... Best practices do, however, provide a great starting point for testing."
An interesting term used in the book is "scent trail" which is a consistent look and feel that provides continuity between a banner ad and a landing page. It reinforces what the authors call "persuasive momentum."
The final section of the book deals with technical details.
After reading "don't make me think" I honestly did not believe another
book related to web design could have as much value or impact on
someone 10+ years of web experience. I expected A/B Testing to be a
basic instructional manual on how to use Google Website Optimizer so I
didn't bother to buy it. Lucky for me I attended the SES conference
where Bryan Eisenberg was giving away free copies. Our company, Blast
Advanced Media, has since taken our testing and objectivity of our
website optimization to a level where we are achieving much higher
micro and macro conversion rates for our clients.
Some of my favorite aspects which provided much more value than expected are:
-Understanding what to test
-Whats in it for me
-Unique Value Proposition
-The Buying Decision
-Customer Focused Language
-Great examples such as Categorization, Trust, Reviews, Up-sell
-Breakdown of questions to ask, what to test and how to apply the many testing examples to your site
In one recent test, we used the principles learned from the book such as persuasion architecture to setup a test in only an hour that increased lead generation on a high volume ecommerce site by 51% (greatly exceeding the test hypothesis of a 15% increase). Other ecommerce optimization tests are on track to deliver six to seven figure annual revenue increases. So the return on investment from the ten copies we have purchased has been so high that we feel guilty. Thanks Bryan! Of course, this is why we wanted to show our thanks by writing this review.
Testing not only gives you impressive results like this but it makes it much easier to work with your clients when you can demonstrate the impact of changes and measure the results to build more value for your service fees. Plus it allows you to offer pay for performance fee structures to lower a client's risk in these current adverse economic times in the USA.
Thanks again to Bryan for sharing his deep knowledge related to website testing/optimization as it has taken our marketing strategists, designers, and most importantly our engineers (who all permanently have a copy on their desk) to a new level of objective thinking and understanding around the importance of the smallest details in web development.
