    Yan ang mahirap pag malaki ang traffic pero wala naman kita ang website. Kagaya yan ng Multiply ang laki ng gastos sa server pero ang mga viewers lang naman ay mga nag-post. Konti lang nag-view na mga buyer tapos pag bumili wala pa kita ang website.
    Marami pa magsasara na free classified ads website sa Philippines.

    Sana ayusin ng OLX yung search engine ng Sulit. Ang daming maling search results dun eh. Nung isang beses naghahanap ako ng mountain bike. For some reason pati ATVs at mga children’s bikes kasama, at top results pa.

    Congrats to Sulit! Retire na!
