We now turn to a favourite topic of everyone – spammy results. The better results for users are those with a lower percentage of spam – naturally.

Guess who wins? In the AnalyzeThis.ru index since 2009 to the present day, Yandex has never been beaten by either Google or Bing. They have won a reputation for being very tough on spam indeed and these figures seem to confirm that.

If you look at the graph you will see Yandex is suffering badly now from spammy pages, up from 1% a year ago to around 6% now, that's a horrible increase. I'm sure if you were working in Google PR not Yandex PR you would put an entirely different spin on it than "being very tough on spin".

I've no problem with Yandex, Google need competition, what I don't like is journalists being invited somewhere and lapping up the PR like there's no tomorrow.

Does he ever question the source of the data, the validity of the data, what's inferred by the data. No of course not, just reprints it all without question.

This really sums it up "this piece was written following a visit to their head office in central Moscow."

Surprise surprise !!!

It's kind of like hearing a facebook exec telling everyone that they will only use facebook on the Internet in the future. There won't be any need for all those other damn sites. Why are people still using those anyways?
