I noticed with several clients that the BTBuckets script has a negative impact on the load time of the webpage. It was the reason some clients don't want to put the script on their website anymore, as long as this doesn't change. Does anyone else has this same problem? @BTBuckets team: are you able to solve this problem?
That's always bound to happen unfortunately. What type of impact are you seeing? The more "apps" you load through the script the slower things will get. My suggestion would to turn the script asynchronous so it loads in parallel with the rest of the page or minimise the amount of "apps" you are loading through it.
@ Carl: thanks. But how can we turn the script to asynchronous? I suppose BTBuckets should offer the script asynchronous, shouldn't they?
We on the other hand use a tag management solution (Tealium) which automatically converts all tags to asynchronous scripts. It allows us to manage all the scripts on our clients websites without having them needing to touch any code after they put the tag container on their website. Very handy :)
Hi Felipe - we are updating our tag structure and will be including an asynchronous tag.
If you do need to use the asynchornous tag immediately, we recommend you sign-up with http://siteapps.com and create the buckets in that interface (it's our sister product). Their native tag is asynchronous.
