In Germany for another 5-6 days and I've been experimenting tonight and simply cannot believe the problems I've been having.
My sites are all fast, I still try to keep pages under 100k and they're all in flat css/html.
At the moment I'm on my laptop which seems to work ok but AdSense ads are still slow to render HOWEVER tablet pcs are horrendous for many sites and ads.
My sites render extremely fast however all others do not appear whatsoever, including WebmasterWorld, and AdSense ads even on my sites rarely load fully and yes, I tried it just to see how atrocious things were, 99% of landing pages did not display whatsoever.
Whether this is a tablet thing I have no idea other than MY SITES WORKED PERFECTLY except for AdSense not displaying regularly!
This is not a caching thing, this is a total failure of many sites PLUS AdSense not to load on these devices ... I've tried it with three tabs so far and it is far from a good user experience ... late 90s or early 00s BOO come to mind.
Wednesday I am supposed to be on a super-quick wireless network ... we'll see, however if I have problems, not with my sites but with many others, what the hell is the point of us working our asses off when intended users can't even get to the sites they want to and then when they do click ads and cannot get to a landing page?
Oh, and another thing, I typed into Google.de my main widget trade keyword in GERMAN and ended up with a page of FRENCH results ... Yeah G, you're totally infallible, I trust you no end!
I have to say that I have never had this type of problem in the UK, US, India or China therefore am I missing something simple?
