Within the next two weeks, Google Website Optimizer will undergo a system upgrade. During this upgrade, Website Optimizer will be in maintenance mode. Your experiments will continue to run and collect data, and you’ll be able to view your reports. However, you will not be able to create or modify experiments. This includes launching, pausing, or stopping an experiment.
We’ll notify you of the exact timing of this upgrade both here on the blog and with a message inside your Website Optimizer account. Thanks for bearing with us as we continue to make Website Optimizer better.
If you also use Google Analytics you should know that they’ll be undergoing a similar upgrade, which you can read about on the Google Analytics blog.
Update: 3/2/2010 at 8:55 AM
We’ve begun the upgrade and Website Optimizer is currently in maintenance mode. A reminder that you’ll be unable to create or modify experiments during this time.
Update: 3/3/2010 at 8:10 AM
As of about 2AM PST this morning, Website Optimizer is out of maintenance mode and working normally. Thanks for bearing with us during the maintenance period.
