Would you like to know whether your test results are also significant and therefore really meaningful? With our significance calculator, you can see at a glance which result is significant and which uplift or downlift could have occurred by chance.

A / B Test Significance Test

Confidence is the probability that the measured difference to the original variant (control) did not arise by chance, but rather due to the test arrangement.

Significance is the opposite, i.e. the probability that the two variants have no structural differences and that the measured differences are purely coincidental.

The confidence is thus the inverse probability to the significance. Significance and confidence together always result in 100%. For example, with a calculated significance of 20%, the confidence is 80%.

Significance considerations are a good tool for evaluating your test results. With our significance calculator you can find out the probability with which the results are meaningful or were measured purely by chance.

 

In general, the following applies: The smaller the determined significance, the less likely it is that the measured uplift or downlift occurred purely by chance. Conversely, a high confidence means that the probability of a random result is rather low.

Further questions about A/B Testing & Personalization

Which elements are tested during A/B testing?

Is A/B testing only performed on websites?
Is A/B testing only performed on websites?

In addition to websites, A/B testing can also be performed for emails, PPC ads, and CTA buttons.

What is a null hypothesis?

A/B testing is actually used to examine hypotheses. There are two typical concepts in hypothesis testing: the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis. Usually, the null hypothesis indicates that the performance of the two variants A and B are identical, while the alternative hypothesis states that they are not.

How often should I run A/B tests?

There are different opinions regarding this matter, however we recommend continuous testing. You should have a clear goal and enough page visitors, in order to achieve statistical relevance within an acceptable period of time.

Client vs. Server Side Testing?

The first thing that differentiates your A/B testing requirements is client-side or server-side A/B testing. This aspect is often overlooked. Nevertheless, it should be chosen based on your needs.

  • Client-side: commonly used to optimize conversion rates in marketing or funnel, for example by creating page variations directly on the users’ browser.
  • Server-side: when you need to test more in depth in relation to the visual changes, such as products (features) or experience for engagement, retention and more.

Do A/B tests have negative effects on SEO?

Many mistakenly think that A/B tests could have a negative impact on SEO. The truth is, that websites rather improve through A/B tests which results in better ranking.

How many users do I need for trust-worthy testing?

The wrong interpretation of statistical significance is one of the most frequent and serious mistakes committed in A/B testing. Usually the minimum required traffic is calculated using the following key figures:

  • The conversion rate of our control variation (variation A)
  • Minimum difference between the conversion values of variations
  • Confidence level
  • Statistical “Power”
