SUPER SLOW Google Ad Script on WordPress – This is How You Fix It

26 Shares

Oh yes the infamous SUPER SLOW Google Ad Script on WordPress. This is a speed sucker and will surely slow down the full load time of your entire page. Well we have come up with a way to delay the load of this script in order to start loading it 5 seconds after the page is fully loaded. This is a very useful tip for websites as the ads can fade in after the page is fully loaded and not interfere with the main goal of content being visible. This is NINJA stuff right here!!!

So no need to make this post super long winded. Let us just share the code with you below. The 2 items you must change that in the code that are unique to your Google Ad account are UNIQUE_ACCOUNT# and UNIQUE_AD#. Please let us know if you have any issues with this.
 
 
STANDARD GOOGLE AD SCRIPT:

<script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
style="display:inline-block;width:728px;height:90px"
data-ad-client="ca-pub-UNIQUE_ACCOUNT#"
data-ad-slot="UNIQUE_AD#"></ins>
<script>
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
</script>

 
5 SECOND DELAYED CODE GOOGLE AD SCRIPT:

<ins class="adsbygoogle"
style="display:inline-block;width:728px;height:90px"
data-ad-client="ca-pub-UNIQUE_ACCOUNT#" 
data-ad-slot="UNIQUE_AD#"></ins>

<script type='text/javascript'>
(function() {
var done = false;
var script = document.createElement('script');
script.async = true;
script.type = 'text/javascript';
script.src = '//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js';

var createScript = setTimeout(
function(){
document.getElementsByTagName('HEAD').item(0).appendChild(script);
}, 5000
);

script.onreadystatechange = script.onload = function(e) {
if (!done && (!this.readyState || this.readyState == 'loaded' || this.readyState == 'complete')) {
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
}
};
})();
</script>

  • Is it safe to use such code? Google doesn’t usually allow code modification except the ones mention on their policy page. Is this modification allowed?

  • This is a very good way of delaying the ad.

    Does it mean that if I have multiple ads on the same page, I could use only one scripts for multiple ?

    Possible to do so.
