Yandex has translated its Webmaster service into English. The service, originally made for the Russian-speaking website owners, can now be used by any who owns a website and speaks English.

Yandex.Webmaster informs website owners about which of their pages have been indexed by Yandex, what search words were used by their visitors and where the traffic to their websites comes from. The service also alerts the users about Malware detected on any of their web pages.

To have full access to all Yandex.Webmaster’s features, users need to register and confirm their ownership rights. No registration is required for submitting a website to the index.

That's pretty cool - specially for non-Russian speaking consultants that have Russian language clients. Nice move.

Thanks, I like Yandex more and more as an alternative to Google.

The Google SERPs are too homogeneous after Panda. It's all Brands listing.

Yandax gives better results.

Hm, I dunno, their imagebot (the one that lives at 95.108) still seems to have trouble with English as used in robots.txt.

Lessee what happens if I let the regular YandexBot (the 77.88. one) in for a while. It seems to have a burning desire to look at my sitemap.

As long they share IPs with very "bad neighbours" , I'm not too much happy with cosmetic improvements.

Like lucy24 said, they have "burning desire to look" not only at sitemaps, even to scrape content for bit more.

A little late, I didn't find out about Yandex Webmaster Tools here but rather a few hours ago elsewhere. Very impressed by their new English-language service. It's not pretty or even very well-designed, but it does provide useful information from what I've seen so far.

They're running a separate spider for yandex.com, you may want to have this show up on the front page. I'll post about this in the bots forum so those interested in black/white listing bots will know to update their settings.
