I would expect a slower load if there was a video or flash content or EXTRA large pictures, maybe even blurry ones, and over done BOLD and font color, but that is not the case with many pages including the one I visited and yet it is slower than the walking dead.
You are aware that Google's rank is partially based on how fast the site loads, right? I mean you know you are just hurting your chances with slow loading, because it took well over 16 seconds to load.
I would expect that from maybe dial-up internet, which I am NOT using. I have Cable lines and this thing here is almost at a crawl. Maybe some overblown, overwritten code that needs cleaned up.
It's not just that it effects rank, but readers (potential customers) don't want to wait around for 16 seconds or more for a page to load, because they will just go somewhere else to get the same info. There is NO reason it should take more than 7 seconds to load, and the really good sites load in less than 3.
I've noticed this for awhile, but it's getting worse. Is this going to be a permanent thing?

Hi Matthew,I've noticed the site is loading slower than usual. I'm using Chrome, but it's doing the same thing with Firefox. I'm not having the same problem with other sites. Also, on one of my unpublished hubs, the capsules were loading very slowly in edit mode.Thanks for your help.

I have been experiencing slow load time in the forum for a few days. I thought it might be my computer, but checked another and have the same issues. I just posted a response in a thread and timed it 65 seconds for it to post. Anyone else notice a lag or slow down?

I have been experiencing some agonizingly slow HP load times these past few weeks. The problem seems unique to the site, as I have had no trouble with loading other sites. Does this have something to do with the end of net neutrality? UGC site terrorists?? Barbarians at the gates (of...
