I just edited one of my older hubs this morning and now it's taking forever to load on the page. During the time it's loading I see messages across the bottom of the screen, "transferring data from pagead2 dot Google syndication dot com". (I added spaces so it wouldn't be a link.) I've read that this might be some sort of virus that is affecting YouTube and other sites.
I cleared my cookies and cache and my browser is Firefox.
Is this site wide or just affecting me?
I was having an issue with slow loading this morning when trying to read and make comments on my hub. So, maybe it's a site wide issue?
I just downloaded the newest update for Firefox and the downloading speed has not improved. In fact, when the pages first load, the text takes a while to plug in and text at the bottom of the page is all in blue and takes a while to finally look like the pages usually appear on Hub Pages.
Looks more to me like Google was just having internal server load balancing issues.
By the way, I have not had any problems with loading Hubs today or slow response.
It's Adsense related and used to show ads on your hubs.
There was a temporary issue that affected Hubs, but has since been resolved.
I checked your Hubs and did not have any problems.
If you have not done so, clear your browser cache and restart your computer.
Please let us know if you are still having problems.

I found it very hard to work with it, almost impossible. As before I clicked on Computer, press Browse,and had the picture. had all my uploaded pictures there and pressed to uploade it. Now I can't get into my picture file. I can't download all the pictures for my hubs about a country.

I think there's an issue with CSS. Site is slow to load and it looks like it's a CSS thing.Here's a fun, recursive looking picture of the problem.

I have been experiencing problems trying to post comments. When I finish writing the comment it doesn't post and the screen returns to the top of the hub. Anyone in my boat?

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without reading our pages. To prove my point that the very high number of ads is to...
