I’m typing this on an iPad Pro ios16, and this happens to me radomly on different websites while in Safari. It also happens on my workstation running Windows 10 and Chrome browser. In fact, it happened on a website yesterday. It’s like the site loads with data and raw links in a text version, without the pretty HTML stuff to go with it.
I clicked a link that took me to another page on the site, and it loaded properly. Then clicked “back”, and the original weird page loaded properly. I have no idea what causes it, but I have experienced it with different sites, and different devices. For those reasons, I’d say neither your device, nor the SOTW site is the root cause.
