Adding the recommendation widget

The recommendations widget is a block placed on Turbo content pages only if automatic ad positioning is enabled. The widget contains recommendations that lead to Turbo page on your site. It can also contain Yandex Advertising Network blocks.

Attention. The widget selects publications only on the sites available in Yandex search results and connected to Yandex as a content site or its mirror. For example, materials from a site that is blocked in Yandex search can't be recommended in the widget. Publications usually appear in the widget within two hours after it is created. It may take longer if you register a new domain in the Yandex Advertising Network before creating the widget.
