Giant server performance difference with and without ADS

Recommended Posts

I want to share with you the experience I had with the performance optimization of my forum. 


I'm not sure if this is a problem with the AdSense delivery system itself, or it's an issue with the IPB 4.2 ad delivery system or another issue. The point is that when I test in GTMetrix with the ADblock option turned on, the performance of the site is significantly better.  Is there any way to improve this and obviously keep the banners, since they are the ones that keeps the site up.

Don’t trust those services too much. I tried WebPagetest as a comparison and it didn’t show any such problems. 

I also can’t see any problems with the ads when visiting the page myself. They are loaded after the page rendering starts, and that’s what matters.
