“Good place 2020”: Yandex.Directory Awards Users’ Favorite Places

Yandex.Directory have summed up the results of the “Good Place 2020” project . Over the year, the minimum rating for a star sticker has grown to 4.4 points, and the list of good places has been replenished with new names.

Good places are organizations across Russia that get high ratings from Yandex users. Every year Yandex awards the owners of cafes, beauty salons, car repair shops and other companies with special distinctions – bright star stickers and a certificate. Stickers can be placed on doors and windows to let visitors know this is a really good place.

In 2020, the minimum score for a sticker has increased. Now the badge is issued to organizations with a rating of 4.4 at the end of 2020. The company’s rating is displayed on Maps, in Navigator or in Yandex search.

To check if your organization has been awarded, an asterisk will appear in front of your company name in your Yandex.Directory personal account, this means that you are amongst the Good Places, and will soon receive a sticker and a certificate. They will be delivered to the address indicated in the Directory.
