A few days ago Yandex posted several interesting job openings, including server-side SERP developer and research technician for SERP speed project. Later Anatoliy Orlov (acting Head of Development at Yandex) shared some comments in his private blog.
This sounds like a very challenging project for Yandex. Also sounds like a challenging project for various rank checkers for Yandex, which will need to crack the new technology and learn to parse the new SERPs.
Russian SEO bloggers speculate about the possible outcome of this new Yandex’s SERP architecture. Some even predict “live updates” and “instant search” like the ones of Google.
Time will tell, but it is definitely an interesting turn.
