Going to Production
Once you’ve collected events and configured your Personalization strategy, you’re ready to put your Personalization implementation in front of your users. Since Personalization can have enormous consequences for your relevance and search experience, it’s best to simulate Personalization while configuring it and A/B test it.
A/B testing allows you to expose some of your users to the personalized experience before adopting it wholesale. Through A/B testing, you can confirm that your Personalization implementation out-performs a non-personalized experience. The guide on A/B testing Personalization walks you through all the steps and considerations.
Whether A/B testing or going into full-scale production, the final implementation step is to include two parameters,
userToken, on all searches you want to personalize. Please refer to the guide on enabling Personalization for details.
Finally, go through the Personalization implementation checklist to verify that you’ve completed all implementation steps.
