So, I have a website that is approved with AdSense and I want to host it on Netlify.
I will place a maximum of 3 ad units on a page(mostly I will place only 2)+ plus google analytics script + Hotjar script. The page will be heavy with these js scripts.
I have a really simple template that I plan to use.
So what do you think will be the performance? will page load time be great with a static website along with these heavy scripts?
Thank you.

Why not host it on Netlify without setting the custom domain, use the direct generated netlify link. Run your speed tests, then optimize if needed / use another platform.

2-3 ad units should be okay for the server side of the task. But what about visitors. Wouldn't that be a lot of ads for the them displayed at the same time?

I may try this but I don't think will ad request work. do you think even with the Netlify subdomain I will get accurate page speed data?

I think I will stick only with 2 ad units, if I see a good page load then I may consider adding another ad unit.
