Hi There,

Thank you for your question. Yola offers you the option to remove the Yola Link for a fee of 9.95 USD per year. This is an account level feature, so you can remove the Yola Link for all sites in your account! To do this:

1. Click on "Edit Page Design" in the Site Builder
2. Click on Remove "Yola Link"

For more information please see: Yola Link Removal FAQ

Also, once you remove it, you might still see it on search engines for a bit. Search engines index your site based on whatever content their bots found the last time your site was indexed. This is an automatic process which takes place according to the formula of the search engines and it is out of our control. However, your live site will no longer have the link.

The reason that you might still see "Make a Free Website with Yola" in Google and Yahoo is that this is what their bots "found" the last time they crawled your site. The next time they crawl your site they will see your latest changes and update their index accordingly.

All you can really do is sit back and wait for the search engines to crawl your site again. One way you can "train" the search engines to visit your site more often is to update your content frequently, so keep adding fresh content to your site as often as you can. You can also get another established and related website to link to your site, which will prompt the bots to crawl your site again.

I hope this answers your question, if not please let us know.
