Google Analytics blocks all sites

Hello,
we have included Google Analytics within several customer sites. Today the connection to google analytics was so slow, that all pages did not show up at all or they needed more than a minute to load a page. This is a very serious problem as our clients can not sell any more. They have a revenue slump and Google is to blame for that. Has anybody else these serious problems? It is really disgusting that Google can not solve that problem. It's not the first time. And people that use Google Analystics may not know that they have break downs for sereveral times due to the small piece of code from Google Analytics.

Stick the script at the bottom of the page, inside the last body tag

Yes, it has been slow for me too. I removed it from most of my sites already a while ago and will not bring it back in the near future.

Isn't there a way to make browsers wait for script to load for, let's say t=0.5 seconds and skip it if it can't load the script?

WHY has it to be JavaScript?? Why can they not give away some PHP code, ASP code, JSP code? *do not hurt me: or an image*

I don't really understand the problem.. The page isn't slow if you ad the script at the bottom of your page (just before the </body> tag) like Google advises you to do?

yeah i find it is fine if you ad it at the bottom of the page. google does advise this now, but at the beginning they advised us to have the code at the top, i reckon some people haven't changed it yet.

I'm one of them. They said to put the code exactly before </head>.

Even when it's at the bottom, that will cause one of those endless blue loading bars (at least in Firefox). That's not the worst thing in the world, but I guess it's all about which price you are willing to pay for getting Google's stats...

Do you still use VisitorVille?

At the moment, no. At the moment I'm using only my server's default stats package, which is pretty flat & dumb but is OK for a quick overview... and it goes straight to the log files so there's no client-side overhead...
