I have noticed that my pages won't disply anything until javascript is fully loaded. This has happened a number of times with the adsense javascript not loading so it stops my page from displaying. Is there any way to load and display the page first and then execute javascript second?

is the script in a nested table? That MAY be the problem, as the browser may be tring to work out the dimensions of table widths/lengths/images etc before being able to display all tables. Try releasing it from its table and put it out in the sun to flower - if your design can handle it..

I agree. My banners are not in tables and are the very last thing on the page to load.

Same here, solved it by moving the bonners to the bottom of the code and shifting them back in the layout with CSS.

I have noticed too as FleaPit.

I sent email to Adsense support and planed to make change as Chiyo's suggestion, but first I think to check website again, then I found all running as usual.

Anybody know what's going on?

This seems to be a common occurrence with various types of javascript. I've wrapped mine in a <div> and have absolutely positioned it at the right of the pages. It is the last line of code in my html and the page loads fine, then the ads come in. That's the way I like it, I want them to see what they came for first, then they can view the ads if they wish.

It's happening to my also. Never had a problem since I started.

I checked different browsers. I tried an old netscape communicator since it dosen't display the ad and the page loads. I went to many other websites that display adsense and the same thing.

This really bites because it is bad for my visitors and makes us look unprofessional.

Hi

As reported elsewhere on this board, I had the same problem earlier this week. It lasted for approx. 12 hours.

An interesting point is that international users of this site were able to see the Google ads on my site (I am located in Australia). However, friends locally (and via the same ISP) were also unable to see the ads. In addition, we were unable to see ANY Google ad on ANY network in Australia or Internationally (even the case-studies featured on Google's Adsense site).

So I'm thinking either:

1. There are occassional ISP blocking

or

2. There are occassional regional blocking

I don't mind losing the revenue. I do mind my entire site coming to a standstill, as the tower is usually within a table that needs to load first.

Getting the tower out of a table will certainly help things load faster. I've got mine in an absolutely positioned DIV, and the page loads fast, even if the ads don't load. I highly recommend this approach.
