Why is it taking me longer presses on iPad to open Verge stories? May need more sensitive.

I have an iPad air, and sometimes i have to press twice on a link to post on the Verge's main site, just because it didn't register the first hit on the screen. I go to many different websites on iPad, and i really only notice it on my favorite site. Am i alone? On Yahoos website, the slide show on top are wicked sensitive. I dont like long button presses unless im right-clicking. Im just touch and go, touch and go.
