It is Yola's policy not to place ads on customers pages, but integrated third party widgets that customers select to add to their pages may contain ads. These widgets will be offered in the menu bar, or in some cases may show up as a default option on the page, and it is the customers option whether to include the widget on their site.

In this case, the Google Search Box widget runs Google ads on the search results page, and Yola gets a share of the revenue generated by the ads. (We do not, however, take a revenue share on the AdSense widget.)

This is consistent with our policy of offering the best solutions for our users while keeping the service free. An alternative would be to leave the blog search widget in the menu, and not default it onto the page, but our intent was to include popular options in the default settings in order to make it faster and easier to set up. Deleting the blog search widget is a two-click step, first click on the "x" in the top right hand corner, then click "confirm" and that will take care of it.
