I want to go out to businesses and offer them advertising on my website. Say I went to a company and wanted to put their company on a leaderboard ad, is it possible to get this done using Yola? If I received a code from the company and placed it in the google adsense window, would this work?

Hello Michael,

You can most certainly place ads on your site. There are a number of ways to do this:

1. We have a Google Adsense widget to make adding this effective advertising tool easy for you. Simply open the "Advertising" folder and drag and drop the Adsense widget onto your page. Click on the link in the dialog box to sign up for an Adsense account and get ads for your site by copying and pasting the advertising code Google provides, once your site has been approved for their program.

2. Add a banner image to your site using either the text widget (click "insert image" on the text editing toolbar) or use an image widget. You can then turn your banner ad into an active link using our link editor. For more information, see this handy tutorial: Creating Links.

3. Place any other form of advertising on your site as long as you can source the HTML embed code. Integrate this with your Yola page by dragging an HTML widget onto your page and pasting the HTML embed code into the HTML editor.

Please note: You are responsible for getting your site approved by your chosen ad network. We can assist you with instructions on how to build your site, but each ad program has their own set of requirements and it will be up to you to ensure that your site meets those requirements.

Kind Regards,

Hi Michael,

Thought I would just give you an example of what I have on my one site. It was really simple to do:

As Emmy pointed out already, you can add banners/advertising by using the HTML widget. If the company you're working with has a URL for the image, as mine did, this makes it even easier:

All I did was drag this small amount of HTML code below into an HTML widget:

<!-- <a href="">
<img src="" width="468" height="60"/></a> -->

you can see the result on this page, at the bottom.

1.The tag starting with "img src" told the HMTL widget what I wanted as an image, hence the URL in the rest of the tag..
2.The tags starting with "a" on either side of that create the link you want when people click on the image.

What is nice about this method is that you can employ it immediately.
