Update 1: If your site is hanging, you have two options: 1) update your tags with async tags, or 2) disable the tags until the issue is resolved.

Users are flocking the forums in search for answers as Google’s ad server – DFP (DoubleClick for Publishers) – suffers massive outage, leaving the Internet, literally ad-free for plenty of websites.

Google’s DFP solution is what powers advertisements on a plethora of websites; websites which are now either loading slow or hanging, or actually not showing any banners — and when you think people are getting blank spaces instead of advertisements, which are so vital for many, as their main source of income — this not just a glitch.
