Some very good news from the Joomla 1.5 world today … Google Website Optimizer now works with Joomla 1.5.
If you haven’t tried it yet, Website Optimizer is a tool for testing different versions of your site to see which one produces a higher conversion rate.
Currently the only option for using Google Website Optimizer with
Joomla 1.0 is a mambot called Opt-Bot. Unfortunately its the very picture
of a bad Open Source business model:
- Its over $100 for three small files (you pay separately for 1.0 and 1.5)
- All files are completely encoded
- The license will shut your site down if it stops working
- Support questions in the forum are all unanswered
Hopefully a free solution for 1.0 will be available shortly.
- Anthony asked me to emphasise that you need a patch for 1.5.4 but this will be native in 1.5.5.
- Barrie asked me to point out his new tutorial with a detailed explanation of how to use GWO with Joomla.
