    Smashing Magazine have a fantastic article on A/B Testing (also known as Multivariate Testing) and how it can be useful for sites.

    Strictly speaking, there is little to no SEO benefit to Multivariate Testing. However, I would argue that nowadays Multivariate Testing is far more important than SEO. Personally, I would rather sink time into running some tests on my website to improve conversions or bounce rate than spamming "dofollow" blogs for no gain whatsoever.

    If we want to improve site traffic or conversion then we have to do experiments and A/B testing is very helpful in providing the idea about which works(design,content, graphics etc.) for one site and which not.

    The thing is, you're asking in the wrong place. A/B testing is usually associated with usability rather than SEO. Google will pull up plenty of information if you search for A/B testing, split testing or multivariate testing. There is a good article about it on useit.com

    Good way to test different sections of a website and see if results vary - ex - tags, etc.
