Help improve Publisher Ads Audits for Lighthouse. Share your thoughts in our survey.

Avoid waiting on load events

Overview

This audit checks whether or not the first ad request is blocked on a page load event. Ad requests themselves do not interact with the DOM and are not dependent on the page being fully loaded. It's therefore recommended to make ad requests as early as possible to speed up ad loading.

Recommendations

Remove any logic that prevents ad requests from being made before the page load or domContentLoaded events fire.
