I am seeing MORE AND MORE the slow load of pages due to GA not connecting back to the mothership.

There has to be a way to prevent this from slowing or preventing the load of the page.

Even if the system is only temporarily bogged down, this should NEVER be allowed to happen and there has to be a design solution to insure that it never does as it makes Google Analytics look so bad.

Please, does anybody have a solution?

PS: I wish I could cross post where the Google people would see this!

You should go back and check the placement of your google analytics code. If your code is properly placed between the HEAD tags, a modern browser should not wait to render the rest of the page even if the GA script is slow to load.

err, checked that. Not an issue.

This is a real thing - there's even been an official (and extremely rare) Google Apology (Googleology?) for this a few weeks back and it is still happening.

If your code is properly placed between the HEAD tags

Double-check that ... it doesn't match what I'm seeing within my GA account.

On the page where one gets the code snippets, it says,

"Copy the following code block into every webpage you want to track immediately before the </body> tag."
