I am on vps, and its disappointing
The server rarely has that much to do with it. It's the size of the page, image sizes, the scripts you run, and the number of http calls. I have a client who was running on a temp server during his development phase so he wanted to blame slow performance on that, but it was really numerous other issues. We fixed those, and now, even with the development server, his pages are now very fast.
...choke-full of no-answer question pages. They do make it look more like a search page, actually:" we don't have an answer but perhaps you'd be interested in these pages?" - the list follows.
IMO, these can be the worst, particularly if none of the other pages have answers either, which is often the case. They make you waste your time, and it feels like you've been scammed and spammed. I'm sure Google is aware of the problem. It might be they haven't fully solved this problem algorithmically yet, but I'm sure they will.
