About Advertising

Yahoo offers you a variety of products and services for little or no cost. We’re able to do this because of our advertising revenue. This also makes it possible to provide certain services and content that would otherwise be unavailable to you through Yahoo services.

Online ads include text, images, and enhanced content that Yahoo has been paid to place in certain locations on Yahoo sites.

How to identify ads

Ads will be labeled with “Ad,” “Sponsored,” similar text, or an identifying icon.

Yahoo has a financial relationship with some content providers that allows us to deliver more useful results to you. When Yahoo is not paid to place the content in a specific location on your screen, the content might not be labeled.
