Title Experiments allows you to test multiple titles for each of your pages and posts in order to find out which one works best for your audience. Why settle on one post title when you have so many great ideas? Use them all and let the plugin figure out which one is the best.
The plugin simply lets you test multiple versions of titles for pages and posts. Unless you know for sure the perfect title that your audience will want to read, you might as well try multiple versions. Each of the titles will be served randomly to your viewers and the plugin will measure if people respond to the title by reading the post.
You don’t need to do anything. The plugin will take care of everything.
Nope. The plugin will start to hand out the better performing titles to more and more people. If your audience really isn’t responding to a title, it will be shown less and less.
The percentage is the probability that the title will be displayed to a new visitor. (Return visitors will always see the title that they saw the first time.) The probability is based on the number of views and impressions that the title has received. If you want to know more about this, read up on Bayesian Experimental Design.
An impression is when that version of the title is displayed in a post list; including your home page, a side bar, a search form, etc.
A view is when a visitor views the page after seeing that version of the title somewhere else on the page. This means that if someone comes directly to your post from social media or a link, this will not be counted towards the success of that title.
