Sitelinks are a shortcut to important information on your website. They make it possible for users to go directly to the page of the website they need.
Tutorial video: How to set up sitelinks in your ads
In Yandex.Direct, you can add up to four sitelinks that lead to pages of an advertised website, a page for a product or service on Yandex.Market, or to social networks.
- They improve ad CTR without additional expenses
Based on Yandex data, ads with sitelinks attract more visitors. At the same time, sitelinks do not require extra advertising expenses – a sitelink click-through is paid in the same way as clicking on an ad. If a user clicks on more than one link in your ad, you will only pay for one click.

Once sitelinks are added, your ad will have additional elements that will help users to go directly to the sections of your website that they need.
- They offer more space for promo text
With sitelinks you can talk about your offers, describe favorable delivery terms, or add other information if there is not enough space for it in the main ad text.
Sitelinks can be added when creating or editing an ad. To do this, on the ad editing page in the Ad extensions section, select .
