Yandex.Direct, contextual advertising service on the Russian Internet, is nowadays considered to be one of the most effective of it’s kind. This is achieved through high relevancy between search queries and a showed ad. For instance, if user looks for the keyphrase „Экскурсия в Праге на русском“ („Prague tour in Russian“), advertiser can show him the ad with offers of currently available tours around Prague, which happen to be in Russian. The ad contains the necessary contact info and a link to the website with the service offered.
