I'm trying to figure out if I can use or create an mbox in Target to run a multi-page test and have it work like URL refinements.
Example: I have 100 products and I want to run a banner on 50 of the products. Product URLs have unique IDs and the URLs are not very SEO friendly.
Example URL: '/lang/product/unqId123/product-name' ---- Ideal URL: '/lang/product/shared-path/product-name'
Because of the unique ID, I'd have to target ALL products using the url that has '/lang/product' in the URL. Is it possible to create an mbox like 'target-mbox-myTestName' and use that mbox on only the products/pages I'm looking to target w/o using a URL refinement?
Yes, you can do that! If it's easier for you to implement a custom mbox across those 50 product pages than to write a refinement rule to address those pages that's a totally viable solution with Adobe Target. I'd just give the mbox a name that is meaningful and helps the person setting up the test/activity to understand where it applies to.
