It's all about traffic. There is no direct connection between the server hosting Stack Overflow and your machine.

Instead, there are routers and gateways and the data packets are doing "hops" from one to another until they reach their destination. More about hops.

Sometimes one or more of those routers/gateways might be jammed and cause slowness. Keep in mind that for each site there are different waypoints (assuming of course they have different hosts) that's why Facebook might be fast while Stack Overflow is slow and vice versa.

To see those hops, run cmd then type tracert stackoverflow.com. Here is my output as an example:

Tracing route to stackoverflow.com [198.252.206.16] over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1     3 ms     2 ms     2 ms  my.firewall [10.1.1.254]

Trace complete.

As you see, four local waypoints and four in New York.
