Description

In a world where many advertising technologies brag about how fast their real-time bidding is, we have to wonder why advertising on the internet is still so slow. We all have constraints to work within when making our sites faster – for some of us it is to work around what we can’t control.

Learn why advertising is so slow, why it’s not necessarily their fault, how to make sure you’re impacting the things you are responsible for, which tools to use to speed up what you’re not responsible for, and even how not showing ads might actually make you more ad revenue.
