What Is The SEO Texts Violation?

The purpose of the SEO text violations is to distinguish website content which has been prepared for search engine optimization (SEO), and to prohibit its use by other domains or subdomains, as well as by various types of meta tags.

There are two types of SEO text violations:

  • The use of texts for search engine optimization (SEO), designed to improve the ranking in search engine results pages. This is an integral part of web spam that we detect with the help of the Yandex.Metrica service.
  • The use of texts for search engine optimization (SEO) which are provided by spam sources and which contain links to commercial resources.

You should understand that using SEO texts can result in your website being banned from our search results, or the suspension of your Yandex profile account, or in being blocked from our API, or even being banned on a country level.
