SEO and SEM for Russian search engines

Yandex ranked the world’s 5th largest search engine

In September 2011 Yandex processed over 3 billion search queries, reports comScore. This allowed Yandex to climb 2 positions up passing South Korean NHN Corporation (Naver) and eBay.

The leader is, obviously, Google with 118 billion queries (globally), followed by Chinese Baidu with 11 billion queries.

Yandex has been showing exceptionally fast growth in both traffic and revenues over the last years. Earlier this year the company raised $1,4 billion in a NASDAQ IPO, and a few months later reported astonishing 93% jump in net income comparing to Q3 of 2010. The company’s value is around $8 billion, which makes it one of the top 25 leading online buisnesses in the world:
