SEO and SEM for Russian search engines

Yandex and VK make it to Top 100 sites in the US

The largest social network in Russia vKontakte and Russia’s leading search engine Yandex were among 100 most visited sites in the US during 2014, according to SimilarWeb. VK ended up at 81th place in the rating and Yandex – at 91st.

SimilarWeb do not speculate about the reasons for such high popularity of Russian sites in the US. Any thoughts, folks? :)

  1. […] Yandex and VK make it to Top 100 sites in the US, russiansearchtips.com […]

  2. It appears that with 2.9 million people, Russians are the third largest ethnic group in the US and the second largest ethnic markets after Mexicans (check this out – http://www.ameredia.com/resources/demographics/russian.htm). There are 600,000 Russians in Southern California only – no wonder Yandex and VK made to Top 100.
