It just took 31 seconds to load my top-performing Hub despite my efforts to keep the images lean.
I understand the need for advanced scripting to produce a highly interactive site. But at the same time Google has been very clear on site speed as a ranking factor.
Definitely a concern...however, when I checked my hubs after having read this, it did not take more than a couple of seconds to upload. It remains to be seen whether this slow uploading speed is just a one-off phenomenon or a regular feature.
For the record, I understand that site speed varies from one moment to the next based on how much traffic the site is getting and a person's Internet access.
I just ran the process again. It took 14 seconds this time. But my understanding is that Google recommends 3 seconds.
If you want to check site speed, you need to do so on a browser which has not been used by you recently to access your hubs/niche sites you use and where the cache has been cleared so there is no "storage" online of the basics of that site.
In other words you need to test site load times as if you were a person who came to the site fresh having never ever seen it before.

I checked today on this website and found one of Cardisa's recent salad recipes stolen with a dead link to the hub. It is a summary of the hub. I don't know if anything else can be done. It may take traffic away from our site. I have done what I can. I reported it as spam to Google. and someone...

Okay, I do understand that Pagerank doesn't carry the same importance that it once did, but I can't help but feel delighted when I see several of my Hubs with increasing Google Pagerank! They are mostly, but not exclusively, the older ones, so I naturally assume that age helps to boost...

I noticed that someone called guidepatternsdotcom were on my google analytics real time tonight so I went looking to see who they were. It turns out that they have a few of my flower felting tutorials on their site. They are using my images with links to my pages but what is in it for...
