Hub pages abnormally slow!

    Jane@CMposted 8 years ago

    Is anyone else having this problem?  It took 8 minutes for Hubpages to come up this morning & posting is taking around 3 minutes??  Are they doing maintenance work?

    Good, it's just not me. It's been painfully slow.

    The same ! It takes me more than 2 min. to post

  4. Jane@CM profile image59
    Jane@CMposted 8 years ago

    Okay, I just received an message when I tried to post saying Hubpages is undergoing maintenance, check back later.

    Actually, this is a good thing for me, I need to write & not play in the forum big_smile

    I thought it was my internet connection acting up. It's taking a while to load pages from Hub Pages.

    I was thinking that it was time to clear my cookies or something but last night I got a Server under maintence page. However it's been like this since a little after 1am est.

    I'm experiencing the same thing. At one point, I got a page that said that HP was down for scheduled upgrades. That went away after about 5 minutes, and then the slooooooowness!

    Yes, it's been this way since last night.  Crank, crank, crank.

    My earnings and traffic are down too - presumably people aren't hanging around when the page is so slow to load ...sad

  13. buckey777 profile image73
    buckey777posted 8 years ago

    Well think of it in the shoes of the readers. If I were coming to a page that was slow loading to doesn't load at all I'm going to move on to the next result on my search engine. So yeah profit and trafic lost. Please fix soon hubpages.com smile

  14. Anti-Valentine profile image96
    Anti-Valentineposted 8 years ago

    Yeah, the pages might be loading slower than usual, and sometimes they don't load at all, especially in the forums. If I try to post something, it doesn't go through. I tried taking care of a few things from my end as was recommended by some other hubbers, but it didn't really resolve the problem.

    Has been slow but It could be due to maintenance.  While in Forums earlier today, a page came up on my screen, indicating HP was doing maintenance and I just logged out.

    Wow, like the rest of you, I thought I had screwed up my computer system some way. Good to know, I won't try and fix what isn't broken.

    I've been out of HP almost all day. Couldn't get past moderating comments. Every time I try to moderate, I kept getting errors. I've finally gotten steady flow of service for a good minute.

      Yeah, Larry is one of the HP techs, and does a lot of stuff behind the scenes.

      He started showing his face more and more this year. Don't know about the cellphone though.
