I am getting fedup with Google & their poor service

 Has anyone else noticed that Google are loosing their shine? I have to admit I do love Google and the services they offer. I use them on a daily basis and I find myself relying on them. In fact I have recently recommended a charity & a couple of businesses switch to using Google Apps.gmail_playing_up.png

However in the last few days I’ve loaded up my Gmail account to be presented with an incorrectly loading page. The image on the right here is a pic from my mail box. As you can see it’s not looking right. Yet I can log into my other accounts no worries. I can switch from Flock to Safari and login to this account and it looks fine.

Have you also noticed that Google Analytics and AdSense are also becoming slower and slower? I had noticed that Analytics code was slowing down the site & now that I’ve put AdSense back on (short term) I see those also having an impact on the load times. As part of the new design I restructured the page and you will notice that the post title & post will load without the page header, sidebar or footer until the Google stuff has loaded. It’s annoying but I figured better to have the actual content there than nothing.

Are we starting to see the downfall of our ‘beloved’ Google? Are they able to once again polish up their image and rebuild the trust they are loosing? I’ve recently (and I really should find them and link out to them) read a number of articles about Google Search no longer being the best.

Anyone else noticing this too?

I just use the firefox plugin ‘no script’ and forbid the google analytics script on every site I visit anyway!

you want now? dude that’s not very nice :( That means I can’t gather the right data to find out what people are doing on the site & continue to tweak and grow it based on that data.

I do that all the time here at work. We rely quite heavily on Analytics to tell us how different people are using the site
