Adding a business

You can add information about a business to the Yandex Business Directory for free.

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

    If you already have a Yandex account, enter your username and password. To do this, click Log in at the top-right of the page. If you don't have a username and password or you don't want to use your existing username to access the Yandex Business Directory, register an account.

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

  2. See the Rules for filling in the fields in the Yandex Business Directory and enter your company details on the New business listing page.

    A business has an actual address

    In the windows that open, specify in the following order:

    • Name and Business category (choose from our list of categories).
    • When asked Is there an office location your customers can visit you at?, select the answer Yes, there is a branch, store, or office.
    • Enter the address or select the actual location that users can visit on the map.
    Примечание.

    The following are not accepted for publication in the Yandex Business Directory:

    • Addresses of rental properties (apartments, offices, or private houses).
    • Online stores with no actual address or that are registered at the owner's place of residence.

    An online store without an actual address can be added to the Yandex Business Directory as an online business.

    A business without an actual address (online business)

    In the windows that open, specify in the following order:

    • Name and Business category (choose from our list of categories).
    • When asked Is there an office location your customers can visit you at?, select the answer No, I have an online company.
    • Service area: Select the appropriate regions from the list.

    Внимание.

    Businesses without an actual address are only shown in Yandex search results. Information about online businesses isn't published on Yandex.Maps.

  3. Enter your contact information and confirm registration.

    • If the Yandex Business Directory already contains information about this business, you can confirm your rights to it. To do this, select the phone number that an operator can call or where we can send as SMS.

    • If it's a new business and the database doesn't contain any information about it, then to confirm the data, enter the Website and social media (if any) and the Phone number to call or send an SMS to. After registration, this phone number is displayed in the business profile in Yandex search results and in the organization card on Yandex.Maps.

    Within 10 minutes, an automated operator will call the number you entered. The operator will give you the code to link the business to your account. You'll also receive an SMS with the code during this time. Enter the code in the Confirm registration window.

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

Information about your business will be sent for verification. You can track the verification status in your profile on the My businesses page.

After passing moderation, update the information in the Info section: select two more business categories, specify the business hours, and add URLs of social media pages. For online businesses, specify the service area by entering the radius around a specific point.

You can also edit data, such as by specifying additional parameters in the selected categories, add or delete photos, and view statistics.

For a business with an actual address, the following is created in a few days:

  • A business profile in Yandex.Maps (for more information, see the Place card section in the Help for Yandex.Maps). One profile per business address is created.

  • An address snippet in Yandex search results.

If your business has multiple addresses (branches), fill out the forms and confirm the data for each of them. If necessary, you can combine them in a chain.

For a business that has no actual address, a profile is also created after the data is verified. It's only shown in search results for queries related to the business category.

A profile, or a business page on Yandex, is created for each business. Its tabs show all the information about the business: address, reviews, photos, prices, and news posts. The more information you add to the Yandex Business Directory, the more complete your business profile is.

You can only confirm your rights to a business at the phone number specified in the business profile. To add or change a phone number, find the business on Yandex.Maps, click Edit information, and enter the phone number in the window that opens. After some time, the information in the Yandex Business Directory is updated and you can receive a verification code.

Примечание. We verify phone numbers if they were changed in Yandex.Maps. Make sure the current phone number is also specified on the official website or social media page.

I created a business, but I don't see it among my companies

If your request for creating a business is approved, but the My businesses page doesn't show your business, link it to your account. To do this, find it in the Yandex Business Directory and click This is my business. Get the verification code and enter it to confirm your rights.
