Yandex N.V., together with its subsidiaries, an Internet and technology company, operates an Internet search engine in Russia. The company also serves Turkey, Ukraine, Belarus, and Kazakhstan. The company also aggregates and organizes local, national, and international content, as well as offers a range of additional services. It offers access to its search engine through personal computers, mobile phones, tablets, and navigation and other digital devices. Services for Users The company offers a range of search, location-based, personalized, and mobile services that are free to its users and that enable them to find relevant and objective information, and to communicate and connect through the Internet, from both their desktops and mobile devices. Yandex Search The company’s search engine offers instantaneous access to the range of information available online. It utilizes linguistics, mathematics, and statistical analysis to develop proprietary algorithms that extract, compile, systematize, and present relevant information to users. The company’s anti-spam protection detects and downgrades pages with low informational content, made-for-advertising and ‘doorway’ sites, pages with pop-under banners, content farms, and scraped-content pages. The company supplements the results from its main Web index with results from its ‘parallel’ search system, which blends listings from all available Yandex specialized and vertical searches according to their relative relevance, such as Yandex.News, Yandex.Market, Yandex.Maps, Yandex.Auto, Yandex.Realty, Yandex.Music, Yandex.Image, and Yandex.Video. Yandex search is responsive to real-time queries, recognizing when a query requires the information, such as breaking news or the post on Twitter on a particular topic, and presenting these results graphically separated from other search results. The company is also focusing on social networking search, and has improved the social component of search by integrating data from the Russian social networks, including VKontakte, Facebook, LiveJournal, and Odnoklassniki, as well as the feed of all public posts on Twitter. It also offers personalized search that provides search suggestions, as well as search results that are aligned with individual interests of its users. The company’s Spectrum search technology is designed to capture the spectrum of possible meanings, based on query statistics. The company offers yandex.com, its platform for beta testing and improving non-Russian language search. It also offers yandex.com.tr, its Turkish language search product. It expanded the size of its global search index. In 2013, the company introduced various primary innovations in search. It rolled out its new search program Dublin, offering users personalized searches based on both their short-term and long-term interests. The company also announced Islands, a new search results page concept. Islands allows its users to interact with Websites directly from the search engine results page where answers are presented in the forms of blocks accommodating various kinds of information, including texts, videos, pictures, and interactive information. Islands is available in beta stage and various Websites have already launched their interactive answers or Islands. Also in 2013, it introduced its new concept called Atom that allows any Web resource to be personalized, even if a user has not visited the Web resource before and has a search history at Yandex. In 2014, the company announced its agreement with Facebook, which provides Yandex with access to the social network's ‘fire hose’ of public data. Public content from Facebook users in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, other CIS countries and Turkey is available for indexing by Yandex as soon as it has been published. Yandex Homepage The company’s homepage provides a gateway to the wealth of information available online. Users could find answers to their explicit questions through its search box, as well as to their implicit questions through current news, weather and road traffic reports, TV and movie schedules, and other services. In January 2014, its homepage had 56.9 mill
