The slow loading of PoliZeros the past day or so may have been caused by the Google ad.
There were three external sites referenced from the home page, the blogrolls from blogrolling.com, the comments from Radio UserLand, and the Google ad. I removed each one, then tested the system. Removing the blogrolls or comments made no difference. Removing the Google ad made an instant difference.
So the Google ad is gone, at least for a few days…
Is anyone else having speed problems and is the speed better now?
