When implementing prebid.org I didn't like the fact that GPT was only loaded after all the bids were back. This resulted in a browser that was idly waiting for bid responses while it could be loading and parsing the GPT libraries.
It was fairly trivial to change this behaviour. I changed this example:
to what I have been using for a couple of months now:
The main changes:
This has been working flawlessly for me and this results in a rather nice speed boost because loading, parsing and running GPT takes quite a bit of time.
We've been looking into this ourselves and trying to solve. Looks like we missed googletag.pubads().disableInitialLoad();. Thanks so much for pointing it out! We'll be working on updating our examples!
+1 here for seeing the solution. We are looking at this as well from our end at sovrn. Excited to see the end result.
There is a PR for this. Should be merged today > #288
just saw that!
