    Whenever I click on a link to a hub, the title and the first few lines load and then the page freezes. The status bar reads "connecting to" (I understand yieldbuild to be the ad server for hubpages.)

    This has been going on for a few hours and happens whether I use Explorer or Firefox. No other sites are behaving this way and I can access other parts of Hubpages such as the forums and people's profiles (where there are no ads, incidentally). I suspect there is some glitch in the ad server.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    I just noticed that some of my pages are loading very slowly.  This is unusual.  Hubpages is normally very fast...something I appreciate.

    Yep, I am having this problem too. Many of the hubs I am able to access have no adds at all. Certain hubs won't load at all.

    Me too. I thought it was just because I was trying to load a page that was heavy with videos. I guess not smile

    Me too. Additionally, on some hubs the comment capsule is missing.

      If your comment capsule is missing, edit your hub and add the comment capsule to make it reappear. wink

    I was starting to think it only happened to me roll but now I see I´m not alone. Lets hope this thing will go away soon enough! There are lots of new hubs I want to read...

    I've disabled ads altogether on hubs until the problem is cleared up.  Enjoy the ad free HubPages experience while it lasts. smile

    Just noticed a drop in google rankings of one of my popular hubs.....wondering if it has anything to do with no adsense ads on the hub?   Does google respond that quickly?  Or am I being paranoid?

      Paranoid I think.  They don't respond that quickly and I'm pretty sure they would say that the presence or non-presence of AdSense doesn't influence the ordering of results.
