When running campaigns, A/B testing of titles can help get important information about the performance of the data feed.

Google Analytics allows you to view the testing results, which can help you make the right decisions about your feed marketing campaigns.

This function requires eCommerce setup in Google Analytics. For details, go to Set up Ecommerce Tracking in Google Help Center.
