    The differences are subtle and technical, but below are the explanations of each version.

     

     

    RTP Tag - CDN, Asynchronous (Recommended)

    • "Asynchronous" means that the page won't wait for the RTP script to load before loading other page elements
    • In the case that RTP is not available, the request will timeout after 2 seconds
    • This tag imports the RTP JavaScript from a network of servers called a Content Delivery Network (CDN). This assures higher availability rates and better loading performance

     

     

    RTP Tag - CDN, Synchronous (High Speed)

    • "Synchronous" means that the RTP tag will load before any other elements on the page load
    • Like the CDN, Asynchronous tag, this tag makes use of a CDN
    • The "High Speed" does not actually mean the script loads faster, it only means that the page won't load before the RTP script completely loaded

     

     

    RTP Tag – Asynchronous

    • Like the CDN, Asynchronous tag, the page loads other page elements while the tag is loading
    • This tag Imports the RTP JavaScript directly from Marketo servers.
    • In the case that RTP is not available the request will timeout after 2 seconds

     

     

    RTP Tag – Synchronous

    • Like the CDN, Synchronous tag, the page will not load while other page elements are loading
    • This tag Imports the RTP JavaScript directly from Marketo servers
