No ad - "Waiting for Google Analytics blah-blah"
What Is Going On?

One of my top pages is showing a lower than usual CTR.
So, I went to the page and there was no ad served - just a blank spot.
In my status bar, it said "Waiting for www.google-analytics etc." For 5 minutes.

So, I finally hit refresh, and there was an ad.
The status bar then said "Read www.gstatic.com" - once again, forever.

Anyone else seeing this? No wonder my CTR stinks.
Anyone have a suggestion about what might be wrong?
Thanks.

Why should I have to hit refresh to see an ad? This page is long established and gets over 1,000 visits per day, with EPC over $1 when clicked.

I've seen it a few times in the past. I moved a large site in the last few days and have been running speed tests. The new server is working well and serving pages in a second or less but some lag seems to occur with Google's Adsense servers and with G+ according to the waterfall charts. It could be an issue with ISPs or, perhaps more likely, with Google's content delivery network as the number of ad networks increases.

I see it occasionally and refreshing the page always produces an ad. Stuff Happens.

How many people refresh just to produce an ad? Not me (except for testing my own site).

It would be interesting to know the percentage of time that this occurs. I try it once, and it happens. Not very reassuring. 5% revenue hit? Seems to me that G would be all over this. A fix here could mean tens of millions of dollars to them.

For me, using Chrome or Safari, time to time the page just stops executing javascript. The last file loaded when it happens is a .js file, served from gstatic.com and its first line reads

/* Anti-spam. Want to say hello? Contact (base64) Ym90Z3VhcmQtY29udGFjdEBnb29nbGUuY29tCg== */

(decodes to botguard-contact at google.com)

I can't find any errors/hangs whatsoever, page loading/javascript just randomly stops..

Thank You! Seriously, this is driving me nuts, but at least I'm not alone.

You are definitely not alone, I even have this problem whist trying to log-in to AdSense!

I've been wondering if G is having problems serving so many requests and I'm finding info that support my guess

I can think of quite a lot of servers holding up page loads. Analytics, Facebook, Doubleclick, 1,001 other ad servers. It's reaching plague proportions.

None of whom have the remotest connection to actual page content.

I don't think it hangs, it just stops the page from loading. All of my internal/external scripts are loaded asynchronously (well, except Adsense) and even they stop loading/or executing. I'm not exactly sure what the hell is going on.

The Google Publisher Toolbar seems to cause ads not to load every time. I deleted it, not disabled it and the problem went away. Another reason not to use it.

Nope, happens with Safari too. I'm almost sure that Adsense or some other security measure calls window.stop()
