I Just want share my experience. My site contain a lot photos and "repeaters". I'm poet and photographer, Songwriter. My pages contain a lot of "heavy" materials .... Pages load slowly and... I try to do something to not lost visitors because of delay. At First I organized "preloader" and It's working - show that page are loaded, but not every time. Sometimes when I clicked on pagename from menu - page not opened, and awaiting with open and frozen Menu.... Just everything "are stock"... No chance to believe that site is still working. All stopped. I do "empty page" just with one text line "Page Are Loading" and make simple redirect. In this case Menu not stopping any more, Visitors go immediately on light empty page which immediately start to redirect to heavy page, but preloader start to show that site is working. That's all. May be my information be useful May be you know another way.... PS> Sorry My site only in Russian. I write my art only in Russian.
