We have placed the code block at the top of our html because the banner adspace is at the top of the page. We have noticed that occasionally that has slowed the page loading. Is there a way to do this or something like setting up an empty div block and throwing that javascript into an onload event. So the page loads before the advertpro code?

    Are you running third-party ads? Lots of those can be really slow to load. I see that a lot with networks like FastClick and AdBrite.

    One way to deal with this is to use AdvertPRO zone code with <IFRAME> tags. That won’t slow down the page loading because the frame loads independently. The limitations of <IFRAME> tags should be considered though: they can’t support mixing ad sizes or running expandable banners.

    A better way is to place the banner code at the end of the page code, wrapped inside of a

    and use CSS absolute positioning to move it to the proper place on the page.

    Thanks for the good suggestions. We are not running any third-party ads. We are puzzeled by why its happening only sometimes. It happened last night around 7:05 pm est and has been happening about twice a week.

    Well, that’s odd. Could just be network congestion between you and the ad server.
