Yandex search engine is very popular in Russia. According to statistics, almost half of Russian internet users choose it as an alternative to Google. Therefore, any developments in this area are socially important for the country.

Due to the fact that Yandex is changing its domain name, the journalist of the “Public News Service” news agency turned to Iurii Nemtcev, CEO and founder of Big Lab, as an SEO expert and head of an international group of digital agencies in Russia, UAE and USA, for a comment. 

In his commentary Iurii Nemtcev expressed his own vision of the future of the Yandex search engine in Russia and talked about what changes users can expect in the near future.
