Best Practices: How to optimize NerdWallet widgets

Placement is key!

Include them in contextually relevant pages. For example:

  • Place a retirement widget in a savings or retirement article or home page.
  • Place a personal loans widget in story pages related to starting a small business, buying a car or home, consolidating debt, paying for school.

Place widgets inline whenever possible.

  • Place widgets between paragraphs where they’re relevant to what your users are reading about.
  • Right rail placements tend to feel like ads.

FAQs

NerdWallet will be collecting self-reported user inputs on widget fields and associating with a browser cookie id. This anonymous data is not tied to any personally identifiable information, and cannot be used to identify a user without that user signing up for NerdWallet’s membership experience.
Yes, these widgets are responsive. They will flex to be 100% of the width of whatever container or screen size they are displayed in (all except one, the personal loans rates widget), and will adjust styling (such as font size, column arrangement, etc) to fit the container or screen size as well. A few of the widgets may grow in height depending on user inputs. For these widgets, the widget will know to get taller when this happens. To see their responsiveness, try them out! Drag the window of the tablet or laptop that you’ve viewing on smaller and bigger to watch the widgets flex.

Our script tag is very small (7kb) and is hosted on our CloudFront CDN. 99% of the time spent in the script (including writing/loading the iframe) is deferred to an asynchronous event that occurs after the page is loaded. The embed render itself is non-blocking and will not prevent the rest of the page from loading.
