Hello Buldozer,

Welcome to Yola! I will try to answer each of your questions:

It isn't possible to import a previously made site into the site builder as for a site to work in Yola it needs to be built using the site builder. I hope you will be able to create a site with us, and if you need help along the way let us know.

You can place AdSense on your page by using the Google AdSense widget:

1. Open the Advertising folder and drag and drop the Adsense widget onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open, click on the link in the dialogue box to sign up for an Adsense account if you don't already have one.
3. Once you've registered your account and customised your ad, copy the advertising code provided by Google.
4. Paste the code back in the dialogue box on your Yola.
5. Click "OK".

You can also add Google AdSense using the Widgetbox Gallery:

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open, click on the Google category.
3. Click on the Google AdSense widget and edit the settings by adding your account information.
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

Please remember that you might not see the ad immediately, it can take a short while for it to be initialised by Google. Wait few minutes, and click "refresh" and the ads will display.

For a social network; it is possible to use Google Friend Connect and many users have had success with it. Here is a link to our tutorial on this: Google Friend Connect.

You can add games to your site; here are a few options:

You can easily add a game to your site with a widget from our Widgetbox Gallery, this is how:

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open, click on the 'Games' category or search for 'games' if you would like to see more options.
3. Choose the widget you would like to use on your site and customise the settings.
4. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
5. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

Another option is to add a game from websites like Miniclip or AddictingGames. This is what you have to do:

1. Visit the the website and choose the game you would like to have on your site.
2. Click on "Post to my blog/website" or "embed".
3. Copy the code provided.
4. Drag and drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
5. In the dialog box that opens, paste your code and click "OK".

To create your own game, you can use Sploder and add it to your site by copying the code in the same way as you would with Miniclip or AddictingGames.

To add a video to your page, follow these few simple steps:

1. Open the "Video" folder on the right hand side of the screen, and drag and drop a Google Video, Metacafe or YouTube icon onto your page.
2. In the properties sidebar on the right, click on the "browse" link.
3. Browse Google Video, Metacafe or YouTube for the video you want to embed in your site.
4. Copy the URL for the video from your browser window.
5. Paste the URL over the default URL in the properties sidebar in Yola. Hit "Enter" and then click "Apply".

A video will then be embedded in your web page.

That is lots of information I know! Please also take at our tutorials which will be helpful: Yola Tutorials.
