A new version of this integration is now available. Please use the new version going forward.
- Use Lotame visitor data to create audiences in Optimizely
- Integrate Lotame and Optimizely so that Lotame can pass information into experiments
Lotame is a Data Management Platform that provides demographic information about your visitors. This data allows you to define Optimizely custom attributes, which in turn allow you to analyze your results and target your experiments by otherwise unavailable attributes.
This article explains how to set up this integration.
Here's what you'll need:
Your Lotame Client ID
The Lotame Audience IDs of the audiences you'd like to use to create audiences in Optimizely
1. Create custom attributes in Optimizely
Here's how to create a custom attribute.
2. Deploy the integration snippet
In the following block of code, set the value of
lotameId (currently "12345") to match your Lotame Client ID.
The value of
lotameId should be a string, not an integer.
Insert this code at the bottom of your head tag, wherever you wish to identify and segment your visitors. A standard implementation would deploy this site wide:
Visitors bucketed into Lotame Audiences will now be included in the custom attributes on your Results page and through the targeting interface.
Because the Lotame Audiences API is called asynchronously, after the Optimizely snippet, any segments a visitor is assigned will not be available until after the visitor's first pageview. This means you cannot use a segment defined by this integration to target an experiment until a visitor's second pageview.
