Do Websites in the United States need Yandex Webmaster Tools?

The “Yandex.Webmaster” section of Yandex’s site is ironically webmaster.yandex.com. Why didn’t they just call it Webmaster.Yandex?

Anyways, do you need it?

Fiddling with Yandex

Today I logged in and poked around a bit. I decided to register my site and upload a sitemap to it. I poked around. I did discover that Yandex didn’t know the “region” of my site, which is interesting. I mean, I run Telapost from a building but it is privately owned and located on private property and there probably isn’t any identifying location information on the site. But if I were a law firm in Dallas Texas I would definitely want search engines to know where my business is located.

Will Yandex benefit you? It is a tough call without combing through your website. I am sure I can find something wrong with your site, and that means there is a good chance that Yandex can, too. Of course, if you are located in Russia, Ukraine or Kazakhstan, you should probably be using Yandex, too. 🙂

Here’s what I did today:

  1. Register with Yandex. https://webmaster.yandex.com
  2. Add your site and verify rights to it
  3. Add Sitemap file under Indexing | Sitemap files

I will update this article as I learn more about Yandex.
