    Where to put ad network code in Wordpress? It's slowing my page load

    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone could help me with this...

    I have had Valueclick ad code pasted right into my header file in Wordpress to have my ads showing at the top of page. For awhile, it's been fine...

    Now all of the sudden fastclick code appears to be holding up my page load and sometimes it wont load at all. Once I take the code out, it loads fine.

    Is this a bad way of doing it? Does anyone have ideas where I can have my Valueclick code in there so it doesn't affect page loading?

    Thanks in advance!

    Kenneth

    Yes this sounds like an issue with their server, it does not matter where in your layout you paste it as far as load time.

    It is their ad not your site. This happens from time to time with some ads. No matter where you put it on your site it will load slow untill they fix the problem.
