    Default long load times and time-outs

    I don't know if it happens to others or not, but this site (and only this site) frequently takes a l-o-n-g t-i-m-e t-o-o l-o-a-d ... so long that Chrome gives me this message:

    This site can’t be reached

    www.inspectionnews.net took too long to respond.
    ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

    I suspect it is all the ads which need to load, but there should be a happy medium between the load time and the right number/type/size/MB of ads??? These ads are what helps Brian pay for the site, but still .... it should load fast enough to be user friendly and not time out.

    No problems of that nature have happened with my logging on.

    This site (and only this site) has been plagued with slow loads, and general poor performance for a long time now.
    Different PC's, different browsers, etc.

    I find it unacceptable often enough to not even use it. Seems some IT function gone wrong.

    Although I have experienced issues I can not recall long load times.

    I think that you hit the nail on the head.

    There are two types of adds that are displayed. One the static and the other that are active.
    The latter is where I have noticed the lag in loading pages. I just chalk it up as the price of admission.

    Still happens with regularity - and I know it is not my connection speeds for my internet:
    - download through my notebook connected wireless is 73 Mbps
    - download through my desktop connected via wire is 110 Mbps

    It's got to be the ads.

    Unnecessary plugins, extensions, and even browsing data can slow your browser down to a crawl, or make it crash. Here’s how to fix it.
    Also; Close unneeded plugin's, clean all browsers caches, close unneeded start up programmes and tell me how it works.
    What Internet security program U using?

    'How to fix it' or 'what needs fixing' is not on my end as this is the only site which does that - all other site load quickly ... as they should.

    I suspect it is some of the ads, not all of them, maybe only one sets of them, maybe they are taking far too long to figure out which ads to place within their space?

    Try testing Inspection News load times.
    WebPagetest - Website Performance and Optimization Test

    Chrome is Google remember.
    Ads are part of what Google matrixes.

    Adjust your Chome ad crawling.
    I had to do the same thing.
    https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/113910?hl=en

    Although you think the price of admission is free, we are all being crawled for our browsing. Still better then Internet in China.

    I think the delays have to do with the ads loading. On my Mac it is slow to load at times, most of the time. Not really a big deal for me, but it is annoying when you post and it takes 15 seconds or so for that post to load. One reason we see so many duplicate post, folks get impatient and hit the enter key again.
