You toss some advertisements on your site and the worse thing that happens is that it slows the display time of your site to the end user by waiting for the advertisement to load up.

There’s another way of handling the advertisement boxes like Techonorati and Google adsense and others that take forever to load.   That is by putting them into an iframe and loading the code from a file on your machine.

Create a file on your hosting, say in the root directory of your hosting; call it something like adbox.html

Put your advertisement code into it, like this example:

<!-- BEGIN UAT - 728x90 - YourComic: YourComic - DO NOT MODIFY --> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ad-cdn.technoratimedia.com/??/??/??/uat_????.js?ad_size=728x90"></script> <!-- END TAG -->

^ That is an example of a technorati ad code, you place that inside of the adbox.html file in the root directory of your site.

Then let’s place the html code inside of the text widget where you original had the advertisement.

<iframe src="http://yourcomic.com/adbox.html" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" style="padding: 0px; border-style: none; width: 736px; height: 100px; overflow: hidden;"></iframe>

The above iframe will ‘allocate’ space on your website and letting the rest of your site display and load, and itself load the advertisement form the adbox.html into the space that was allocated for it. Leaving no undesired page-pause while it loads.
