What happened to Adverlets?


Since yesterday, my blog's loading rate has been soooooooo slow! Superhero S and L'abeille have asked me what's the problem and Superhero S asked me to try to fix it.

So, I tried fixing it by reducing the number of posts in the main page and tried removing all ads that are not giving any profit to us ( no offense, but I'd rather give my readers a faster loading blog rather than I get some commission ) .. But, it was still loading very slowly and I thought maybe blogspot was having a server problem. Unfortunately when I opened other blogspot blogs, they loaded quite fast! ( All along during those revamps, the Adverlets ads were always not fully loaded .. I did not to think that could be the prob at first )


And then I found a tool ( Pingdom Tool ) that can test any website's loading time. So, I gave it a try and waited for the result. When the result was out, I was really shocked that the Adverlets ads was the slowest thing to load at my blog! What the...?

For two days, I have been trying to fix up the mess but then Adverlets has really let me down. I went to the their website but was unable to access to it and it was really disappointing really. It took me around 4 hours to access to their website but even that, it was with some errors.

So, I'm really wondering what's gotten into Advertlets? Anyone knows? And as of today, I am STILL having the same problems. But, I don't really want to take out the ads.. so what now !!!???? *sigh...

Hi,

Josh Lim from Advertlets here. Where are you accessing from? We use Pingdom as well to test, and generally its quite fast.

Just tested, and your blog takes 2.9 seconds to load Advertlets (which is a bit slower than it should be, but still okay). However, there's this one file: www.fileden.com/files/2007/10/4/1483447/arrow-older.gif
that takes 20 seconds to load! You might want to look into that. Alternatively, you can try rearranging the position of codes as the load order can also affect load speed.

We had a bit of slow loading time yesterday afternoon, but I believe the problem should be resolved by now. Do let me know at josh.lim@advertlets.com if you continue to face any issues. Cheers.

hi josh lim.. thanx for the fast reply..

nway, i am accessing using an office wireless LAN. Yup, I saw that file already. The 'file hosting website' also having some problem, I am going to change the file later. Because it just a small picture..

yeah, i do hope adverlets give the best services to all bloggers.

thanx
