I use Google Analytics on my retail site and have been since about the end of September. This morning I noticed that the home page was verrrry slow to load (about 5-6 seconds on a cable modem), so I contacted Hostgator.
I was wondering if Analytics might be slammed just due to holiday browsing and shopping, so I took out the code to test it.
It didn’t help. I was hoping that was it. But it didn’t help, and there isn’t anything unusual going on with my server at Hostgator, so I’m not sure what to do except keep an eye on it.
