|The site may experience some (hopefully brief) downtime over the next few days.|
Google penalizes sites that don't load quickly enough. While HonestGamers seems to load reasonably quickly to me, especially compared to page loads in the past, it unfortunately falls outside the range that Google determines acceptable.
To fix that issue, I am changing hosts. This is not a process I have gone through regularly, and I can guarantee that error pages will show up somewhere during the process. If you are submitting content during this time, I highly encourage you to keep a local copy on your computer, in case any transfer of information causes it (temporarily) to be lost.
I'll be sure to let you all know once the server migration is complete, and I'll work to address any issues as they arise.
This is an important step, and one I would rather not take, but I also would rather not see our content drop down the search rankings. Similarly, I'd rather not people click to view the awesome stuff we post, then leave because the pages don't load as quickly as ideal. I hope that after this migration, the site will be faster and more reliable than ever, because you all deserve that from the site you allow to host your work and creativity.
Thanks for your continued support, and please accept my apologies in advance for any bumps along this transitional road. With any luck, they won't last long!
