This Split Test Proves Heatmap.com Has No Negative Impact on Website Performance
Est. time: mins
Historically, website owners have been hesitant to install heatmaps on their websites due to "site speed impact." Microsoft Clarity and Hotjar are known as the two that have the most negative impact on site speed.
Heatmap.com’s innovation of Site Speed Protection has proven we have zero impact on website performance. The best part, we ran a formal A/B test with over $2 million in revenue, proving site performance is identical with and without our snippet.
When you look at "site speed checkers" like GTmetrix or Google Pagespeed Insights, the results are not accurate to how your website is actually performing. They do not match the reality of what users see.
For example, the website shown below loads in less than 1-second! We ran this on 14 laptops and 12 phones with varying internet speeds, and all got the same result. That is insane site speed!
But… GTMetrix shows a "C-rating" for this INCREDIBLY fast-loading website. Below 1 second is as fast as a website can load, but a C-rating is a "bad score."
Here’s what a website with a sub-1 second page speed (faster than 99% of websites) gets a "C rating" looks like:
Formal A/B Test for Site Performance

Experiment (with Heatmap.com installed) also resulted in an identical $3.65 Revenue Per Session and $1.2 million in revenue.
