3x3 My cube can't be compared to any of your "states"

Im following this guide, but I always end up in a strange situation. Look at my attached picture001.jpg
I have the yellow cross with two yellow corners as well, but there is no yellow on the front face top left corner. But on the left side top-right corner instead.

And sometimes I end up with 3 yellow corners, but never 4 :(

I think I have tried the same sequence on every possible situation on the top layer, but it never works.

Im worried I might be crazy, but maybe color scheme has something to do with it? :D

yellow counter white
green counter blue
orange counter red

What am I doing wrong?

Are the two yellow stickers that aren't facing up like the following image? If they can't match the image, even after adjusting the yellow layer, then see here.
If they match, then doing "R U Ri U R U U Ri" three times should solve the cube. If you go here, click the reset button on the right (to the left of the *) then the play button (to the right of the *), you can see that it works. (You can ignore the first turn in the animation.)
