How can I hide A/B testing parameters from my URLs?

Nelio A/B Testing adds a few parameters in your URLs. These parameters tell Nelio A/B Testing which variant has to be loaded for each visitor. For instance, if you created a headline test for your Foo post and added two alternative headlines, you’ll end up having the following URLs:

  • https://example.com/foo/?nab=0 is variant A (the control version)
  • https://example.com/foo/?nab=1 is variant B
  • https://example.com/foo/?nab=2 is variant C

Thus, if a user accesses http://example.com/foo/?nab=1, she’ll see the alternative headline:

Visitors will see different versions of your tested pages depending on the variant they’re supposed to see.
