Aweber Opt-in Form Not Showing Up for a Few People

by Ken Strong 11 replies
I'm getting a handful of scattered complaints that the Aweber opt-in form is not showing up on my squeeze page in their browsers. It shows up fine for me in both Firefox and IE.

The only thing I can think of: When creating a form in Aweber, you have a choice of copying and pasting a large block of HTML code, or a line of javascript. I normally choose the javascript, but I'm wondering if javascript doesn't work on some computers due to firewalls, anti-virus software, or custom settings by the user?

    Hello Ken

    I just checked my site stats for you. Based on the last 15,000 visitors, 5.2% had Javascript disabled in their browsers.

    Cheers,

    Neil

    A lot of folks do have javascript disabled.

    We recently ran across a client with a web hosting account that wouldn't allow them to add javascript to their web pages.

      Yes, they probably have javascript disabled.

      Which also means that in 2008 the majority of the web is broken for
      them with javascript disabled.

      Place the raw AWeber HTML form on your page and they'll see the form just
      fine. However that will remove the ability to split test your opt-in form, track
      your opt-in percentage rate, and make changes directly from our interface
      without updating your site.

        Thanks for your input, Tom. Hmm...I suppose I could put two opt-in forms on each squeeze, with the javascript where it usually goes and an HTML one at the bottom. That way, they'll always see at least one, and it might raise conversions, too.

    I have been using the javascript versions of CJ ads on a lot of my sites and I just read something last week about a lot of computer users have java disabled. I guess I should head back and make some changes too.

    I bet there is a code that could be implemented that would be something like:
    >>If java disabled = then show this html box, otherwise = show the java box<<

    That way we could still utilize the split testing / tracking built in to the jave version.

    The most popular plugin for Firefox is NoScript. It's a whitelisting program so the user has to tell it a page is OK. I've used it for a long time, if a site doesn't look right click the button in the lower right corner and click allow. This plugin will be a problem for many sites as it is usually the first plugin a Firefox user will install. This affects Google Analytics and video feeds as well as Aweber.

    Yet another reason to put the HTML on your site. You do know you can use a tracking code with that, right?
