Before getting started with Chartbeat's Headline Testing tool, your site must first meet three technical prerequisites:
- Cookies must be enabled.
Because Headline Testing uses its own dedicated cookie, it is necessary that you have first-party cookies enabled for your site. If you have set the noCookies configuration variable you will not be able to conduct headline tests.
- You may not use virtual pages.
We cannot support sites that load articles dynamically. If you are using the Chartbeat pSUPERFLY.virtualPage variable to tell us when a new page has loaded you will not be able to conduct headline tests.
- Average peak of 200 concurrents on homepage.
Average audience size directly relates to how long headline tests take to complete. With a smaller audience size tests will take longer and a higher percentage of tests may not conclude.
If your site meets these requirements then you're ready to get started with the implementation process. There are a couple different implementation options, so check out our Headline Testing Getting Started Guide to see which one is right for you.
