I try to create a small site for myself, but my problem is that if I insert Google AdSense the page flickers, and also the page load slows down.

I googled around a lot but I could not find any answer how could I avoid this.

Anyone had success with this?

This seems to be everyone's problem, especially the slow page load time.It's strange that Google does not react.

Either way, you can do the same thing this site does:

  • Create a div where you would like to put the ads. Let's give it the id adsense_container. For example:
    <div id=adsense_container style="display:inline;"></div>
  • On the bottom of the page create an initially hidden div which contains nothing but your adsense script. For example give the id "adsense_div" to your div:
    <div id=adsense_div style=display:none>
      <script type="text/javascript"><!--
        google_ad_client = "pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";
        google_ad_slot = "xxxxxxxxxx";
        google_ad_width = xxx;
        google_ad_height = xxx;
      <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
  • Finally at the end of the page reparent the adsense_div to be inside the adsense_container:
    <script language=javascript>

Hope this helps everyone.
