Use of designed experiments has become a major tool in web site design, helping companies market products and services more successfully. The experiments are used to compare possible changes to web pages with respect to outcomes like “click-through rate”, “download rate” or “total sales”. Most of these experiments compare two formats for the web page, hence the common term "A/B" testing. This talk will explore methods for the design and analysis of online experiments that look simultaneously at a number of factors. Important features are to balance the need to explore and to exploit and to take advantage of the large traffic volume characteristic of most internet sites.
