What is Google Optimize?
Google Optimize is an online split-testing tool from Google that plugs into your Shopify store and enables you to experiment with different ways of delivering your content. It facilitates three types of testing – A/B testing, multivariate testing, and redirect tests. Optimize is typically used for conversion rate optimization (CRO).

How do I install Google Optimize in my Replo project?

There is a flicker between when the page loads and when the variant is applied
This is a well-known problem in Google Optimize. Page flicker occurs when a web page briefly appears with the browser's default styles before loading an external CSS stylesheet which re-renders it causing the restyled elements to momentarily 'jump' on the page. Conveniently, Google Optimize has a solution for this.
