“Will your script slow down my site?” This is probably the most common question we get about the TrustedForm script, and rightly so. We consider performance to be the most important feature of the TrustedForm script. No one wants to implement a script that disrupts or slows down their site. While the short answer is “No, it won’t slow down your site”, you probably need a lot more information to feel comfortable with that answer. This blog post dives deeper into the reasons why the TrustedForm script won’t slow down your site.
Background on the script
Adoption & operating history
We launched the first version of TrustedForm in 2010. It was the industry’s first independent lead certification service. We’ve grown a great deal over the years, consistently gaining more adoption every year. The reality is, if the script slowed down websites, we would have been forced to shut down this product a long time ago. Currently TrustedForm captures 10 billion user events per month across thousands of websites. TrustedForm is trusted by some of the biggest brands in the world and we are very proud of our track record to date.
No third-party scripts
Public system performance
We are totally transparent about the script performance. We publicly display it at https://status.activeprospect.com. Even though we have an excellent track record of reliable performance, it’s still possible the script could fail. For this reason, we designed the script so that in the unlikely event it fails, it will simply fail silently in the background and won’t interrupt site performance.
Try it yourself
Don’t take our word for it. Test it yourself. Our script is publicly available on our site. You don’t have to sign up for an account with us so you can test it anonymously. It is a universal script (same script for everyone) to make it as easy as possible to implement. Our team is available to if you need any assistance. We are always happy to help.
