An Introduction to Split Testing in WordPress
Aug 18, 2010 @ 12:56:55

On NETTUTS.com today there's a new tutorial showing you how to create a split testing environment in your WordPress installation with the help of the Google Website Optimizer plugin.

Split testing is a way to experiment with a live site and find which headlines and text are the most effective. Amazon uses split testing to determine which versions of their site convert customers better. We’ll use WordPress and Google’s Website Optimizer to test two different headlines, and find which works best at capturing customer emails.

They walk you through their six step process to help you create the pages for testing, install the Google plugin and use the Web Optimizer tool to keep track of the results of your testing.

Nessa's Blog:
Installing IonCube loader with Zend Optimizer
Nov 19, 2007 @ 09:32:00

Nessa has a guide posted showing exactly how to get the IonCube encoder installed right alongside the Zend Optimizer (specifically on a cPanel setup).

This is a common request we get for Ioncube to be installed. It's generally not an issue, but when you factor in other optimization plugins like Zend and eAccelerator, a common misconception is that the three don't get along. It's very easy to install Ioncube into a PHP installation that already has Zend and eAccelerator.

It's only about a five or six step process to get them working happily together with one "gotcha" mentioned about the ordering of the statements in the php.ini file.

Installing the Zend Optimizer
Jun 09, 2006 @ 09:39:32

In another "cut to the chase" kind of post today, this new item on Bnnx.com gives the steps needed to install the Zend Optimizer.

You'll need root access to the server you're installing it on, but after that, it's really a pretty simple setup process. You'll also need to have the webserver up and working with PHP to get it all working (obviously), but having each step laid out for you makes it each.

If you're looking to install this offering from Zend, be sure to check this process out.
