Why is keyword research important?

Yandex is the leading search engine in Russia with over 60% market share. Whilst Google presents additional opportunities, it's Yandex that should be prioritised when targeting the country's internet users. Yandex should also be part of marketers' considerations when looking to target Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus.

For marketers seeking to improve visibility in the organic search results of Yandex, the first step is to identify the search queries used by the target audience. By conducting thorough research over a variety of sources to identify keywords which are relevant and have as high traffic as possible, a set of strategically important keywords can be determined and form the basis of all on-page and off-page website optimisation efforts.

All research is conducted by a native Russian-speaking search marketer, who is experienced with local research tools and the additional complexities of working with Yandex. This blend of technical, marketing and linguistic skills is the most effective method of discovering relevant keywords on Yandex and is something that cannot be achieved by applying a translation process.

The outcome of the research will be a report that shows a categorised list of keywords and corresponding data, such as estimated search volumes.

We recommend that research is refreshed on a regular basis to identify changes in the patterns of search on Yandex.

How it works

The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire with your Account Manager to clarify your objectives for the research. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with delivering the research and is the foundation for all our quality checks.

Our native-speaking search specialist(s) will review the brief and ask for further clarifications if necessary, or will otherwise accept the brief and confirm a completion date.

When conducting the research, our team begins by reviewing your website or landing pages (if available) to compile an initial 'seed' list of relevant words and phrases in the target language. Using keyword research tools and techniques, we'll expand these seed words and select the most relevant keywords according to the agreed brief. These keywords are then categorised by theme and/or any other relevant metrics and added to our reporting template in Excel format.
