The largest Russian search engine has launched their mobile-friendly algorithm yesterday.
Yandex has told us they have rolled out their mobile-friendly ranking algorithm for their Russian index today. They code-named this update Vladivostok, the name of the largest city in the Russian Far East, where the share of mobile internet users is the largest compared to other regions in Russia.
A Yandex spokesperson told us that the new mobile-friendly algorithm is currently available only in Russia but will be available to searchers in Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Turkey in the coming few months.
In November 2015, Yandex began labeling mobile-friendly pages in their index with the goal to release this new algorithm.
