Split Testing Question

I just setup a split test using google analytics content experiments...

I now have mywebsite.com/vsl and mywebsite.com/vsl2 that are each being tracked.

Here's my question: how does this affect affiliate traffic?

My product is running on clickbank and my hop link page is mywebsite.com/vsl so is all affiliate traffic only going to go to version 1 or will it also be split up as well?

Thanks!

    The traffic will only be sent to the first link.

      That was quick! Thanks for the reply Ryan!

      How do you get around this?

    Sounds like you need to put a redirect, split test script on mywebsite.com/vs1 that devides traffic between mywebsite.com/vs2 and mywebsite.com/vs3.

      Thanks webapex...

      I actually made a mistake in my original post, that's what I'm already doing.

      Hoplink page is mywebsite.com and that redirects to mywebsite.com/vls

      So affiliate traffic should be included in my split test as well?
