Well then,
The dealers would need to pay more if the ads were not there.
Same as the ads on TV. I never complain about them. Except if they are so stupid they are insulting.

Some of you do not understand what is happening on YW. It's not a pop up ad as you perceive them and I'm sure it is frustrating the owners of the YW website as well.

To clarify, you are viewing boats on YW when suddenly a pop up appears that covers the entire screen. There is no way to get out of it, everything is frozen. You can't go back, you can't exit the screen. You need to close your browser to exit. There is no way YW would allow this to happen. They've been hacked.

Is anyone experiencing it on any browser or system other than iOS and Safari?

You can probably get rid of the pop up by going through an exchange server but that leaves you open to other issues.

It's even more frustrating having your boat listed on the site .

To clarify further, is this a web browser or a YW app? If browser, specify which one when posting.

As for YW being hacked, I doubt that. My first guess (and I've never seen the symptom, so it's a wild guess) would be a problem with a 3rd-party ad service. There are ways to diagnose that, including trying the same thing with an ad blocker enabled. I just looked at the YW home page with Ghostery enabled:


It actually looks pretty clean, only 3 advertising services. There may be more when you get into the search pages.

Of course Tom. Many are better than the programs and cost much more money to produce.

We don't have adblock and have no problem. That's using various browsers including Chrome, Edge, and Samsung's browser. I tried Firefox just to see and no issue there either.

That is malware or more specifically adware that has somehow installed itself on iProducts. Seeing it on one person's Android surprised me although not impossible. However, most reports have been Safari related. Often that particular one is coming from an ads remover or blocker.

I'd recommend cleaning your browser and operating system with your Security software and hopefully it will go away. Those of you experiencing this, are you using a security software? Perhaps that could be why I'm not seeing it as I do have Norton on everything.

Thank you for starting this thread! I was having a problem also with YW. Pictures hanging up, slow loading. Quit using Mozilla and started using chrome. Still not as fast as it used to be, but somewhat better. However, every time an ad with video shows up, the site grinds to a halt. I have also notified YW.

I am on a Windows laptop.
