    I found strange redirects and cookies on one page of my site.
    Until now I did not find other pages on my site, where this happens.
    Please have a look on the redirects on Gtmetrix
    There are a lot of redirects which shall not be there. The cookies I found are addthis.com, casalemedia.com, everesttech.net, mookie1.com, quantserve.com, target.com, beacon.walmart.com. Until now, I found the cookies only on this one page in German. The English and Italian versions are not affected (there are only 4 groups of cookies which is correct (booking.com, widget.getyourguide.com, tourist-in-rom.com, http://www.tourist-in-rom.com)
    I checked with my host provider and they say, the site is clean.
    I had a link on my page to an external page and on that page I found the same cookies.
    Have you any idea how to solve this?
    Thank you

    Update: I disabled Google Adsense on most of the pages and the cookies and redirects disappeared on these pages. I had a look at the Google cookie policy and the cookies, which I found, are not documented there.
    Disabling Adsense, I see in Gtmetrix a reduced load time, e reduced page size and an improved page speed score.
    I’m quite convinced that the cookies and redirects I found are not GDPR compliant and I’m wondering, whether there is a way to control them. Actually, Adsense seems to be completely out of control, setting cookies here and redirects there, slowing down the site about 50%.

    How can I keep this under control?

    This is an issue with any sort of ad service, unfortunately, as they will all make requests to external servers that will set cookies/redirects.

    The only way to prevent this is to host ads locally, which of course isn’t possible with services like Adsense.
