If you are using adsense from google you can contact them, or actually filter the ads that are ok for you site and those that are not. But then again, that is with Adsense.

Hi Cindy

The reason that people are asking you to post your URL is that Yola does not place advertising on any of our websites. So if you have a Scientology ad on your site, we need to find out where it came from and then we can advise you how to remove it.

I had the same hunch as Denise, when I first read your post. Namely, that you were using Google Adsense on your site. If this is the case I can certainly explain how the ad got there. Google would have found keywords on your site, and placed ads that seemed related. If so, then she has given you some great advice.

However, if you are not using Adsense we will need to investigate further. I understand not wanting ads that contradict the message of your site, and I am sure we can get to the bottom of this and find a good solution.

Sorry, the url would be something you need! / I will be waiting for your advise. I am not using Google Adsnse that I know of. I have unpublished the site until I get this taken care of. If you need me to start it up again please let me know and I will until you get a chance to check it out. Thanks for your help.

Hi Cindy, we do need the site to be published so that we can take a look.

Some free widgets start placing ads either right away or after a certain time (that's why it's free). Check all your widgets.
