I have a question about Page delivery vs Audience Targeting.
I am aware of the limitations of running multiple form-based experiments on a certain page (related to priorities), but at times, the URLs are extremely complicated and cannot be constructed using the "page delivery" section of the VEC, therefor, in that case we would have to use a form-based experiment which instead of "page delivery", uses audience refinement.
My question is, whether there is any drawback in approaching this sort of issues, in another way, would it be possible to keep using the VEC, setting say the homepage URL under "Page Delivery" and then setting up the correct URL (where I actually want the experiment to run, say on a page down the funnel) on the audience section, under "Current page, url, contains" etc.
Example (provided my experiment is build using code, so I wouldn't actually need to make any modifications with the VEC)
Say for instance I need to set up an experiment on this URL: https://abc.co.uk/xyz?e=e1s4&curPage=opq , using the VEC, under page delivery I would need to set the URL up as:
URL: https://abc.co.uk/xyz AND URL contains curPage=opq - this approach, as far as I know, does not work using the VEC.
Could I set up the URL as: https://abc.co.uk/xyz (which would in theory run the experiment on this page, which is not my intent, but then refine the definition on the audience?)
Audience: Site Pages - Current Page - URL - Contains: https://abc.co.uk/xyz AND Site Pages - current page - url - contains: curPage=opq
Is there any drawback in doing this? If I am not wrong, the experiment wouldn't run on this page: https://abc.co.uk/xyz as the audience definition would prevent this to happen, is this correct?
By doing this, I could avoid the drawbacks of priority issues for example of wanting to have multiple form-based experiments running concurrently on the same page.
Please let me know,
