I keep on seeing this in under Google Developers where it says this function is not performing as well as it should be on a selection of my pages. Is this something the site is aware of.
64 / 100Speed
Works for me. It might even be why my cpm has dropped this last week+. The slow loading issues may be causing page abandonment.
True, HP has a lot of preload JS because of the HubTool, Adverts, etc. However, this is in relation to Google PageSpeed, and not necessarily all Spiders/Robots. A simple fix is to make the JS asynchronous. The new HTML5 markup includes an async tag to help speed up the DOM build -especially from external files- before the elements load. Older LAMP stack environments had this problem, especially Drupal and Joomla.
I ran the SpeedPage test and it does look like Glam & Google ads are slowing the render. 85% of the elems load in about 3.5s. It takes about 4.5s to load the ads. Ironic? Maybe. Google Ads are slowing down Google SpeedPage.
when you google it, there are 11,000 people asking the same question and the answer seems to be that it takes months to get an answer.
The google tool can be helpful (we've looked at it), but it's a generic tool that doesn't get it quite right.
The major performance gain we have left revolves around ads. If you use webpagetest.org it gives a bit more realistic view of page load time. Load a hub with ads turned off and you'll see what I mean.
We have done things to improve ad speed performance recently by moving to the asynchronous tags, but ads are the major thing slowing down the page.

Google is often considered a leader in online advertising, and now it seems they are working to be the first to comprehensively ban scam affiliate advertising.So, keep your eye on those ads that come up on your Hubs and see if they start to change over the next few weeks and months.Google Does...

What will happen if most people install AdBlock add on on their browsers? Already over 120,000 people have installed it on Chrome and far more on Firefox. This means the most effective means of earning is blocked for us and we will have to make do with just affiliate marketing. Makes sense?
