These Ad Serving Rules are an integral part of the Agreement. Terms used herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in Yandex.Direct Online Advertising Service Terms and Conditions located on the Internet at: https://yandex.com.tr/legal/oferta_direct.

In case the Ads provided for placement are in the language other than Turkish with Location-Based Targeting other than Turkey, such Ads are placed on terms and conditions set out in Ad Serving Rules placed at: https://yandex.com/legal/direct_display_rules_ch. Meanwhile, such Ads should satisfy the requirements of applicable legislation of respective jurisdiction(s) for Advertising with Location-Based Targeting, including, but not limited to the legislation on advertising, intellectual property legislation and the competition law.

Advertising Impression shall be accompanied with the designation: “Yandex.Direct”, or “Direct”, or “Advertising”.

Advertising placed via Yandex.Direct may be displayed:

Selection of Advertising for Impression in ALL positions at SERP is based on keyword / key phrase (subject to exclusion of stop words (http://direct.yandex.com.tr/help/?id=1125927#1125932), the quality coefficient, clickability and the cost-per-Click, specified by the Advertiser.

At that, only Impressions and Clicks on search results of the Search Engine shall be used to calculate the Click-through-ratio (CTR) (as defined below) for Impression of Advertising on all position of SERP. Several search results pages may be simultaneously displayed on a single web page (including mobile devices programs interface). In such a case search results pages are numbered.

Click-Through Rate (CTR) means a ratio of Clicks to the number of Impressions of an Ad. CTR is calculated and recorded separately for: a) PCs and tablets, b) mobile devices. For the purposes of these Rules, mobile devices mean devices classified as such automatically by the Yandex.Direct system.

Yandex SERP may contain up to three Ads of the Special Placement. The Special Placement means an advantageous Advertising placement with high clickability, located above search results (under the search string or thematic insets of Yandex services («wizard»: https://yandex.ru/support/search/?id=1059399)). Impression of Ads of the Special Placement shall be guaranteed for each query identical to a keyword/key phrase (subject to exclusion of stop words), specified by the Advertiser.

Other Ads shall be displayed TO THE RIGHT of search results.

  • up to 4 Ads displayed statically, i.e., guaranteed for impression for specific keyword/key phrase (subject to exclusion of stop words), specified by the Advertiser, – the Guaranteed Impressions .

  • up to 5 Ads, not included into the Guaranteed Impressions, displayed dynamically (i.e., rotating) at the positions below the Guaranteed Impressions – the Dynamic Impressions . A total number of Ads, rotating in these positions, is not limited.

The Ads might not be displayed on the Advertising spaces specified in clause 2.1 of the Rules since a media context banner (http://advertising.yandex.ru/media/context) and/or Yandex.Market product offering (http://market.yandex.xx/) and/or information block covering Yandex's services and products might replace the former, as may be prescribed by certain inquiries.

Ads with the best indicators are to be displayed in the Special Placement and at the positions of the Guaranteed Impressions. Other Ads shall be displayed at the positions of the Dynamic Impressions.

Ads selected for the Special Placement shall meet certain threshold, irrespective of whether there are any competing Ads. For that reason it is possible that no Ad will be displayed at Special Placement, while Advertising in other positions is impressed. Accordingly, Advertising with high clickability may also be more often impressed at Special Placement for a cost-per-Click which is less than price of the first place in Guaranteed Impressions.

Advertising in Special Placement and Guaranteed Impressions shall be displayed in descending order according to the cost-per-Click.

Display of Advertising at the position of the Dynamic Impressions is depending on the total amount of Ads competing under specific Search Query, their clickability and cost-per-Click. Ads in the Dynamic Impressions positions are displayed in descending order on the basis of clickability and cost-per-Click.

Selection of Ads for Impression on Yandex.Direct all Ads viewing pages (http://direct.yandex.com.tr/search) and their placement shall be arranged in decreasing order based on multiplication of clickability by the cost-per-Click. At that, the position of the Advertising on the page shall be determined in accordance with the selected cost-per-Click, i.e., selected Ads shall be placed on every page in the decreasing order on the basis of cost-per-Click.
