Ad Injection
Speed / order of loading ads (4 posts)

    My ads with Ad Injection seemed to behave differently from the current plugins I am using in one crucial respect; my ads appear to only load after other elements are displayed.

    Needless to say, for my relatively slow loading site (www.freewaregenius.com) this had a significant negative effect on my revenue. I quickly switched back to the three plugins I use to display ads.

    Is there a remedy? Thanks.

    Hi Kurdi, Thanks for your message. Are you doing a direct comparison by using the same adverts across both plugins?

    Ad Injection doesn't do anything that would delay the loading of the ads (I think!). The ads are inserted into the page as it loads.

    Are you using the option to only show ads to search engines (or selected referrers)? This does add some JS to the page, but that does not control the ad loading, it just sets a cookie if the user comes from a search engine. Maybe this could be slowing things down?

    I am not A/B testing; I don't have a platform to do that.

    This is something that I noticed visually, that the ads with Ad Injection were loading after the rest of the page, while the other plugins were loading the ads with the page.

    I am not using the only show ads to search engine visitors option.

    I should mention: I am using w3 cache plugin, and mfunc ad insertion mode.
