They shouldn’t! The widgets load data asynchronous from our servers, so your page doesn’t wait for them to load.
- How fast do the Odds Widgets load
The first time you refresh a page with a widget, you might notice the widget takes one to few secconds to show. This is needed for our servers to build it based on your settings. However, our servers use advanced caching systems to speed up the load of your widgets, so on next page reloads, the widgets on your page should load almost instantly.
