Consequently, if you're not factoring in the cost of ads in terms of performance, you may be throwing money out the window. There's a price paid via user attrition correlated to load time. People will close your site if it's slow and often what makes it slow is advertisements.
Some numbers: Eliminating ads shaved off 7 seconds off the page load time for a cold cache hit. 11 seconds to 4. The estimated revenue lost there is massive from bounce rate/attrition when you talk about our user numbers.
