Russian .ru extensions in search engines.

I have a couple of .co.uk sites and a couple of .com sites. I published a .ru (Russian) site about a month ago, written in Russian. So far it has 12 pages. But it is not listed anywhere at all in Google. In addition it is totally absent in Yandex (it does not appear in either even when I enter the site name, Russian or English). Are the Russian search engines slower to index a new site compared to the UK or USA search engines? Any advice greatly appreciated

Hi nomis5 - welcome the Euro forum.

Good questions!

Let's take it one step at a time:

>is not listed anywhere at all in Google

You mentioned it's only a month ago. That's not very long, so you might want to check your logs and see if Googlebot has visited the pages. If not, well then you will not start to show in Google before they do find your pages. If they have been crawled, well then it's probably only a matter of time before you'll show.

Try to point/build some links to the pages, deeplinks if you can :) Build more pages - Google love pages and then to find a large site "more interesting" than a small one.

>Russian search engines slower to index a new site

I'm not completely sure about Russian search engines per se, but talking to guys that know about this I get the feeling that at least Yandex is a pretty good and very well know search engine that crawls regulary, so my guess is that at least Yandex is up-to-date.

Hope that helps a bit - otherwise just post again :)

I have a 150-page dot-com in Russian and Yandex is crawling that at about the same rate as Googlebot, or slightly more. So the only thing you need is some patience.

Patience was needed as suggested. It's in Google now and Yahoo though not Yandex as yet. But a bit more patience and it will probably be in there too. Thanks for the advice.
