Configuring search blocks

To edit added blocks, go to the list of search blocks (Products → Premium placement or Products → Yandex.Direct Search). Find the block you need and click Edit.

All visual configuration changes take effect automatically (without resetting the website code) within 30 minutes after changes are saved. If a loading method (synchronous/asynchronous) or alternative ad code changes, the website code must be reset manually.

Configuring ad block design

On the Direct design tab, you can configure the visual design of a block by specifying your own font and frame settings, as well as color settings with the help of a palette (click a color sample next to its 6 digit code). The display of advertisers' website icons and sitelinks can be enabled or disabled on the Formats tab. In addition, you can enable and disable the display of illustrated ads on theme-based platforms.

All configuration changes will be immediately visible in the test block.

Please keep in mind that the design of your ad block significantly influences its CTR and, consequently, your site revenue.

Maximum number of ads

You can edit the maximum number of Yandex.Direct ads:

  • For premium placement block: 1–3;
  • For Yandex.Direct search block: 1–9 (if a block is placed under the search results, it should contain at least 4 ads).

Use the Formats tab to set the limit.

General settings for search platforms

Please note that the settings defined for a search platform function in search blocks.
