Admonkey.Dapper.Net issue haunted me for couple of hours yesterday. After solving the issue I thought it would be great to share the details.It is one of the worst issue faced by me due to below reasons
- There is very less resources available for the search key admonkey.dapper.net
- The issue does not occurs everytime the website loads.So this makes t tough to reproduce the scenario
What actually is admonkey.dapper.net issue?
It is used to track behavior of visitor and sometimes it causes the website to hang up.The website keeps waiting for it and hampers user behavior.The website keeps loading for indefinite time.The visitor sees that all contents are loaded but still the browser is loading something.Thus the visitor leaves the site and can mark it as a spam site.I do not like websites which keep loading for quite sometime (may be lack of patience)
To solve the issue follow below steps
- Install Google Page Speed in your browser
- Open your website in browser
- Run Google page speed for your webpage
- Go to the resources section of Google page speed
- Browse through the results and search for admonkey.dapper.net text in the urls
- The URL on which above term is found is the resource causing the problem on your website.In my case it was Adbrite.The advertising network was referring to this site and causing the problem.I had to make a tough call as Adbrite is good advertising network but I can not go with this experience.Below is the details of the request as shown in page speed.Adbrite has been acknowledged about the problem and it seems that their ads are now free from this issue.
- Remove the source of URL (very likely these are advertising networks).You can remove the code from that advertising network and your website will be free from the problem.
- If you find any advertising network causing this problem then please share the name using below comment form for others help.
