Remedying Browser Timeouts and Slow Loads

July 15, 2007, 3:32 PM Eastern (UTC-4 America/New York)

Over the past several days, the system has been rendering browser timeouts and slow page loads, especially for the stats reports.

You should see an improvement today, as we have disabled the banner ads on the stats report page because they often slow down the page loads. (Be sure to comment if you do not see any improvements in the page load speeds.)

Meanwhile, we are working on a longer term solution that will be implemented in the next day or two to help the database and web servers more quickly for you.

Also, can you comment on this post, or send an email, to let us know which pages are causing the most timeouts and slow page load experiences for you:

More updates to follow.

We have added another slave database to improve page load speeds when you view your stats reports. We also have restored the leaderboard banner advertising to see how performance is affected by loading a single advertisement with the stats report page.

Hi blogpatrol team!

Over the past two to three days I've been having difficulty loading most pages for my stat report. I've only successful loaded the welcome page and "search engine details". But as soon as I load all other stat report pages, it just times out. And then as much as i try i cannot load blogpatrol in my browser again.

I have to close the browser and then reload it just to view the welcome page. Any news on improvements for this?

Thanks and more power!
