The Google Analytics Blog recently posted a great video showcasing how “Google Website Optimizer can help you identify the copy, images, and page layout combination that is most effective at getting visitors to convert”. Together with Google Analytics, you can “find out which landing pages are least effective, so you can start working (optimizing) on those first”.
Google Website Optimizer is natively integrated with Magento as of version 1.1.7 (see related video and webinar).
Important Note: If the Magento Compilation Module is enabled it must be disabled before attempting to upgrade. After upgrading is done click on “Run Compilation Process” to process and enable it again.
Please Note: We do NOT recommend upgrading a production installation of Magento directly. Please backup database and all files before upgrading. Please make sure to check file permission before trying to upgrade through your Magento Connect Manager.
