      Partially Loading/Slow Sites - One Reason!

      Some of you will know I have been waffling on about www.freewebs.com\crashgearbox website's erratic behaviour while on SKY, sometimes working OK, sometimes partially, sometimes not at all, stalling part way through a page. Yet it works 100% from other ISPs.

      Well, I have found a reason why, and it explains issues I have had with some other less regularly used sites, too.

      NOW, Freewebs uses "in page" rather than popup targetted advertising, and this means that every time you view a page, the advertising panel may possibly change as they "tune" the displayed advertising to the page content, e.g. you're looking at bus info on page, so you get bus orientated adverts, etc.

      IF any of those adverts point at sites which still have bogon filtering issues with SKY IP's.........the whole page either does not not load or will partially load.

      Checking other websites, I have discovered that some sites have this advert type, and some seem programmed to onward search if an advert site is down, creating a delay before the page build completes while it finds another choice.....it's feeding your IP address to these sites, hence the slow to load syndrome.

      e.g. the site you directly access may be clear of any bogon issue, but the advert site may not be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Nice to know, but alot of things could also slow the loading of sites down!
      1. Server congestion - being the main one!

      True, but that's why the title says "one reason" and not "the reason", and in the text it says "a reason" and not "the reason".

      I have been in the position since going on SKY of having to to go to webmasters re: non-loading of their sites, due supposedly bogon, and at the time neither of us worked out that it wasn't THEIR site that was causing the issue, but the attached advertising, all we knew was that their site would not load, or was painfully slow. And of course it affected one of my sites.

      I'm guessing popup ad site bogon won't affect main site loading (may even be a plus, you won't get it!!!)

      Bottom line is it's as well to keep in mind that the main webhosting companies filters may not ONLY be the cause of site unavailability due to bogon filtering.
