Google ads and load times?

    Hey does anyone know much about Google ads?

    There's a site that I loooove but it takes ~30s to load. This seems outrageously excessive. It makes me suspect that something's not optimized as well as it could be.

    I've talked the owner but he's not really knowledgeable about the technicalities. He says
    I ran fiddler on his homepage and it makes 307 separate calls on first load, pulling down 770K of data, several ads are 30K+ in size.

    Yeah yeah, I know I want him to be able to have his cake and eat it too, but surely there's a way to find a compromise?

    Anyone care to take a crack?

    This is one of the best sites I've ever seen on the intertubes, and I hate not being patient enough to visit it regularly.



    This is the site:
    http://www.darkroastedblend.com/

    And, to jump-start the analysis, I'm going to just go ahead and post some of the fiddler data, sorted by size (PF won;t let me post it all):

    Hey Dave, that's a great site you have there, sorry to hear you're having problems loading it.

    Loading it normally, it took me roughly 8 seconds - but then I used AdBlock on the page, it took less than 1 second. Definitely the ads causing the problems.

    Many, many, people complain about this all of the time, doing a quick search on Google results in dozens of threads about it. Google seems to know about the issue, but they have done nothing to fix it, unfortunately.

    Usually 3 or more ads results in the excessive loading times. With a page that large, there's bound to be more than three.

    Unless you can convince him to drop an ad (some people have actually said the extra ads caused them to lose revenue due to the extra load times.), I'm not to sure that there's anything you can do except to use AdBlock - which is never a good thing, especially when you like the site.
