    Please can you stop the video advertising you started on your website last week – its making your site to hard to visit now with Philippines bandwidth

    You have too much advertising now on your site – first the bar at the bottom and now this – horrible

    a great site being ruined by a poor layout due to greedy advertising

    • stoic says:

      indeed..

      this site should be renamed to yug-ADS-tech!!!

      I bet you guys hate it, but undeniably not the revenue it generates..

    • GREEDY ADS says:

      your ADS will crash your website. stop the greedy fucking ads of yours.

      Ads are the lifeline of any blogger. It is also the motivator to do more and strive to better your website. Think about it, google had a huge chunk of profits on ads thru adsense, with doing less, while blogger had to scramble through competition for little money. So if you have large audience, strike at all fronts while the iron is hot.

    Hard to believe that India’s Internet is slower than ours

  3. Hen-Sheen says:

    2.5Mbps? Just a little more push, then our internet speed will be 5Mbps! PLDT controls 80% of the Telco Service/s here in the Philippines. PLDT = AT&T…..

    Hey mr Yuga you are such a greedy man. Google Ads should ban your account to much ads will kill your website.

  5. To those complaining about ads, you may want to install adblockplus to your browser(Firefox/Chrome/Android).

    Yugatech was previously on whitelist because I like this site but now their ads are too much. Ads on the site, and even articles are sponsored to promote brands/sites(Like Acer
    and Lazada).

    WTH The average internet speeds in the Philippines are on par with Indonesia’s.

    Possible options for our ISPs and big websites to skirt around the problem: invest in faster internet speeds or concentrate on mobile.
