Adding a business

A business is added to the Yandex Business Directory for free.

  1. Sign in. Only authorized users can add information to the Yandex Business Directory.

    If you are registered in Yandex, enter your login and password (click the Log in link in the upper-right part of the page). If you don't have a login or you don't want to use your existing login for working with the Yandex Business Directory, you have to register.

    You can log in to the Yandex Business Directory using a profile on a third-party website or with a Yandex.Mail for Domain account.

  2. Fill in the form on the New business listing page.

    In the form, fill in the fields Business name, Address, Phone, Business category, Website and social media (if there are any), enter the business hours, and click Add business.


    Note the rules for filling in the fields in the Yandex Business Directory.

  3. Confirm the information.

    The system will check if the business exists in our database. If it does, you will be able to confirm your rights to the existing business listing on the Similar businesses page.

    If the business is not in the database, click the Add button in the Add business with my information section.

    After information about a new business is verified and added to the Yandex Business Directory database, it is available on the Waiting for confirmation tab. Click the Confirm button and enter contact information in the opened window. Within 10 minutes, you will receive a call from an automated operator to the number you have entered. The operator will give you the code for linking the organization to your account.

    If you have entered a mobile phone number, you can choose how to receive the code — by automated phone call or by SMS.

    You can enter the code on the My requests page (go to the Confirmation requests tab).

Once your rights are confirmed, information about your business is available on the My businesses page. You can edit information, add or delete photos, and view statistics.

In addition, the system creates:

  • A business profile in Yandex.Maps (for more information, see the Help for Yandex.Maps).

  • An address snippet in Yandex search results.
