If you would like to write for RSN or purchase a sponsored post if you have a tool or service you wish to promote, please review the below guidelines and submission methods. This page details content guidelines, your rights, and our submission process.

First and foremost, RussianSearchNews.com is designed to be an objective reporting news-site, and bring the latest news and information relating to Yandex and Russian search.

We do, however, accept unique guides and insight posts into optimizing for Yandex and/or general Russia focused marketing insight.

Please read this page, and terms in full.

Article Topics

This is a niche website. All articles must relate to the Russian digital market, whether it be Google in Russia, Yandex, or digital trends in Russia. Generalist marketing articles for general Top X things articles won’t be read past the first few lines, and will be rejected.

Publishing Schedule

RussianSearchNews.com published articles, at minimum, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Publishing Hiatus

Twice a year, RussianSearchNews.com observes a “down” period in both publishing, and publishing non-scheduled content.

These periods are:

  • Christmas
  • The first 2 weeks of June

During Christmas, there is a period of ~10 days with no publishing occurring. The exact time period is always defined by a blog post the last Friday before Christmas, with publishing resuming in the first week of January. No articles of any sort are published during this down period.

The first 2 weeks of June, all content published during this period is pre-scheduled in advance.

Editorial Article Guidelines

These articles are user submitted, non-sponsored articles. You will get an author biography, and link to your homepage/socials from the footer.

Acceptance of these articles is wholly at the discretion of the editorial team, as they need to add value to the journal.

Do:

  • Use title case in each heading.
  • Run your article through a grammar/spelling checker (American English).
  • Eliminate contractions.
  • Think of appealing visual presentation.Ā Ā If you feel your post will benefit from additional imagery, add it – but don’t make the whole article a single infographic.
  • All guest authors must be genuine and identifiable – e.g. real photo, real name, real social media links…

Don’t:

  • Include multiple self-promotional links. Links to relevant resources are fine, but if they are your own resources – it must be disclosed.
  • Submit an article covering the same topic information that already exists on RussianSearchNews.com.
  • Submit an article that has been published elsewhere previously.
  • Publish the same article on other websites within 21 days of publication on RussianSearchNews.com.
  • Excessively bold keywords, or add links in bold, or add links in headers.

By submitting an editorial article, you agree irrevocably to our user submitted content disclaimer.
