    Yandex Notifies Webmasters of Guideline Violations, Introduces "I Fixed It" Button

    I don't know how many of our users actively pursue Yandex, but I thought I'd give this forum section a little love. Yandex has introduced warnings and an "I Fixed Everything" button to Yandex.Webmaster.

    The types of guideline violations that they'll notify people about include:
    - Buying links for SEO
    - Selling links for SEO
    - Inflating behavioral factors (clicks, pageviews, visit times, bounce rate, etc)
    - "Thin affiliate pages"
    - Keyword stuffing
    - Hidden text

    Once you've fixed your issues, you can click a button to notify Yandex so that they can take another look. That button can only be clicked once a month and, "Yandex warns webmasters that the decision to press the button should not be taken lightly, but should be properly prepared and thought through."

    Also interesting in that article, I guess that due to how the Russian SEO scene is organized, Yandex sees no need for a disavow feature in the future. Paid links sound like the norm over there.

    I love the idea of "I fix it" button: Google has something to learn from! They cold limit how often webmasters can click it to avoid false alerts but otherwise a very cool feature!

    • Will-O-The-Wisp agrees : I thought it was a pretty awesome idea too! Get on it, Google!
    Everything will be ok in the end

    If it's not ok, it's not the end

    I didn't knew about Yandex much but the concept of "I Fix It" button sounds great to me.
    Wish Google also introduce such kind of stuff for the users soon.

    Now Yandex also punishing webmasters for using 'clickjacking'. Be carefully with using services such as social-spy etc
