It all started July 3, 2001 Here's what he said on this subject Kirill Tikhonov:
"Since yesterday on the pages Narod.ru, одном из самых популярных бесплатных хостингов в России, появилась реклама. До сих пор отсутствие рекламных вставок было главным, что отличало Narod.ru from other similar services.
Advertising banners are displayed on top of each page in the so-called minibloke. The website visitors can minimize or even close it completely. In the event that within 30 seconds that never happened, miniblok rolled himself.

As for free hosting, Yandex disingenuous: after all, Yandex scrolling advertisements on their sites, users of popular sites pay them for hosting. Although he claims Yandex converse :
"... All this really free?
Placing personal page on the people really completely free. We can also assure you that it will not be paid for ever ... ".
