Yola, a free website builder, announced it had surpassed 3 million users, tripling

its user base since January ’09 by helping small and medium businesses

create, host and grow professional, customised websites. Yola’s

drag-and-drop technology enables its users to create

websites that feature the latest, most popular business-oriented

widgets such as Google Maps, PayPal, Skype and YouTube. Because

Yola’s users can build and host their websites inexpensively, the

company estimates it has saved its users a total of $120 million while

enabling their sites to draw in a total of 28 million global

impressions per month and 9 million global visits per month.

“Thanks to Yola, my company’s website is professional instead of

stale,”” said Patrina Ozurumba, the owner of Next Steps Career

Solutions based in New York, NY. “”I used the simple and free template

just before getting serious press on With the new site I

was able to put my business’s best foot forward.””

“”Yola gave me control over my website while saving me time and money,””

said Ling Hou, owner of the San Francisco-based tutoring service Ling

Ming Mandarin. “”Before Yola, I was spending too much time and money

working with a web designer. With Yola’s easy-to-use and professional

site builder I make my vision happen. I am thrilled to have a service

like this.””
