This message is new. Up until today, HP has been 5-by-5 on the Site Health front.
Mine isn't showing that right now. In the past, it has shown slow page load though.
I went and rechecked. The message is still there for my best-performing hub; presumably it would also apply to all my other hubs. Oh, well.
Anywho, I'm not particularly excited about it. This is HP's problem to fix. I've done my good deed for the day by reporting it.
We are working hard to improve the performance of HubPages's speed. The two biggest factors in our page speed are ads and social buttons. Since we've moved to static social share buttons, that's been addressed.
Right now we are working on some technical enhancements to HP Ads. One of the major reasons is to migrate to asynchronous ads. When we complete this we will be able to render the content of the Hub fully without waiting for ads. The 728x90 is the first part of this that we announced today. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/122908
On the blocking css, it's sometimes recommended to add the styles inline so that at least all the above the fold content can be rendered and users can begin reading. There is a bit of a trade off of performance vs managing css and js if it's added inline and it doesn't look like a material performance gain for us. This is a much more fine grain improvement that we've discussed, but it's really small compared to the impact ads have on blocking the page from fully loading. So, we are going after that one first:) I'm glad you posted this!
Thanks. I hope the spammers leave HubPages alone and HP Staff can have a peaceful, relaxing July 4th weekend.
Paul, We appreciate all of the effort the team puts into this type of thing.
is there anyway to make the adsense ads a little darker color font so they stand out a little? Very hard to see and I don't make anything off of adsense. I make about a dollar a year through HP..I do fairly well on HP ads, but it would be good if I could get a little from adsense too perhaps..
One more, is there anyway to move the ads from the bottom of the page? the two that are at the very bottom under the comments? I'm sure no one sees those.
thank you...don't know where else do address this issue as I have sent in suggestions before and no one replies..

I was kind of frustrated with my earning for a while. Since last Feb as a matter of fact. Last month I decided to block Google certified ads and my earnings a up 100 last month. I would be really interested to know how this works for other as well. I also blocked...

I published an article on suicide. I thought the ads were off until it gained more traffic. But I just checked it out and it appears that the subject matter falls outside of the TOS?!!?? I had no idea. Staff and veterans, please clarify.

If we turn off HubPages Ads and replace them with one Amazon Ad would our ability to earn decent money be compromised? Would we still earn from Adsense? Could someone please explain the different scenario's to me so that I can better judge and understand which option is better for...

I am not seeing any ads on my Hubs. Is there something I've done wrong? There used to be ads.

because of the new ads. they were testing on the site before the Google changes ? Or are they too big (Google) to care about the other ads here or maybe Google search and Adsense are not 'connected' in anyway?Sorry, I just have the sort of mind that keeps asking questions even about subjects...

I checked about a dozen of my Hub posts from recent to older to active and the no-index posts too. None of them are running ads - other than the Amazon and eBay which I added myself. There are no ads placed by HubPages. I thought it was just the no-index posts but it seems to be that way on all of...
