Over the past week we've been tweaking the site and it's now currently loads the homepage as fast as it has ever loaded.
We've also reduced the ads that display on pages from 4 ads to just 3, which is less than every other TV related mainstream site. We'd love to get rid of them all but unfortunately we need to pay the bills, so NO ADS = NO SpoilerTV, which I'm sure none of us want ;)
We also believe that our site is now one of the fastest if not the fastest loading mainstream TV site on the internet.
As a Test I ran our site along with a number of others through a loading test over at http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt. Below are the results.
Here is our result.
SpoilerTV (3 Ads)
EW.COM (7 Ads on average)
TVGUIDE (8 Ads on average)
E!ONLINE (5 Ads on average)
We gave up on E!Online as the tests timed out after 20+ seconds
TVLINE (5 Ads on average)
TVOVERMIND (8 Ads on average)
What are the fastest Browsers?
Also for those of you interested you can see which Browsers load the site the fastest. These averages were taken from over 2 Million page views from all over the world.
So if you want the fastest experience, get Google Chrome!
