Yandex, Russian-Based Search Engine, Adds Mobile-Friendly Label To Search Results

by on November 20, 2015


Yandex has added the mobile-friendly label to their mobile search results, for pages that meet their mobile-friendly criteria.


The Russian Search Tips blog reported on the change, saying Yandex announced it in Russian and now, mobile-friendly web sites will show the label.

They also released a mobile-friendly diagnostic tool so webmasters can check to see if their sites are mobile-friendly. If they are not, the tool will offer advice on what changes to make to be mobile- friendly.

Earlier this week, Yandex told webmasters to stop blocking JS and CSS. I assume that notice was aimed at Yandex being able to detect better if a site is mobile-friendly or not, among other things.

Bing just recently rolled out their mobile -riendly testing tool, but had the mobile-friendly label for some time. Google released their mobile tool a year or so ago, with the mobile-friendly label.
