Running this Google Tool
highlights consistent page rendering delay problems that could be fixed. Could HP please fix these problems.
Your page has 3 blocking script resources and 1 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.

I ran this once and wondered about the results. I sent them to staff but never heard anything. What does it mean, and is it important?
Good tool, didn't know about it. It let me know my own sites are not doing so well in terms of speed. Not sure I'm capable of fixing, lots of solutions involving code and all that.
Slow loading time was brought up 20 months ago via the same alarming source as mentioned here. There is very little we can do individually. The problem is too many ads. You can see a not very helpful reply from Mathew in this post:
I have moved all my photos down, allowing a brief introduction at the beginning of hub per Camden815's suggestion and ensured they are large. That does not help ads above fold but may assist to some extent.
I often try to get on this site and do something else while I wait for it to load. The issue doesn't happen on other sites, so this site does have a problem. I'm sure it is hurting all of us.
I know I've waited upwards of twenty minutes for the page to finish loading after I've changed some text in my hubs. I don't have this problem on any other site, only HubPages.
Edit: this comment took eight minutes to post from the time I pressed "Save" to when it posted.
Could anyone who has photos at beginning of hub run the test and report back on the results of that test?. It would be nice to know if it affects the page loading with photos above the fold. Thanks.
I checked it out with a large photo above fold, and it apparently did not affect page loading. Does anyone else remember an issue?

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...

After editing one of my hubs, I noticed that it took forever to load and watched to see what it was waiting for, and i.betrad.com showed up. I couldn't find too much about it while searching. But one post associated it with malware. I finally had to escape and try again, and the...

Elsewhere on the forums people are reporting very long delays in getting indexed by Google - the delays seem to be increasing. Obviously this has been caused by the NOINDEX tag added to new hubs when under review and to ZZZ hubs while being reconsidered. Surely this is of concern to HP? As a writer...

As of yesterday my hub ranked very highly in google for most of my search terms. Today it is completely gone from google....not even listed at all. Also on the stats page of my hub there are no incoming hits from any where but hubpages.com. Yesterday I had hits coming in from multiple sources...

When I am looking at other web sites and the first thing that pops up is an advertisement (above the fold) I usually bounce out of that page and go find something else to read. I am sure I am not the only one to do so. I would like to propose that HP do an experiment and publish 100 or 1000 hubs...
