Y2: Revolutionary changes in the Yandex search

Yandex has launched a new long-awaited version of Y2 search, which expands on the new features from the previous big update. Along with the redesign of the search page which now has less of Yandex-owned services visible, the search itself has become more accurate, enriched and personalised.

Probably the most exciting innovation for Yandex is the emergence of professional search for people of narrow specialties. Yandex now uses neural network CS YATI for better search results in development and machine learning queries. In the future, Yandex will provide search support for doctors, financiers and other professionals.

Yandex search can now determine the long-term user’s interest in a particular topic and structure the information, allowing them to continue work at any time. The complex classifier combines queries on topics such as finance, real estate, education, and products for online shopping.

For the e-commerce niche, this is particularly inspiring news, because the service will collect the most important facts about the product in one card and show it in the SERP. So far it works for electronics and appliances, but we’re all certainly looking forward to expanding this list.

Testing of the auto-translation service has been successfully completed. Yandex users can watch foregin video content in five other languages with an auto generated Russian voiceover. You can read more about it here.

With each update, Yandex is becoming more user-oriented. Today, the cutting-edge technologies of this service are aimed at improving the efficiency and speed of search on the World Wide Web.
