FAQ

How often can I send requests?
There is no limit on the number of requests, you can adjust their frequency yourself. Yandex uses algorithms that prevent too many requests.
Can I send the same URL multiple times a day?
We don't recommend sending the same URL too often. If necessary, send it with pauses (10 minutes). If the page is updated frequently, use other ways to report this to Yandex.
Can I send pages with HTTP code 404 via the API?
Yes, you can use IndexNow to report pages with a 404 or 410 code.
Can I send pages with the HTTP code 301 or 302 (redirection)?
Yes, you can send URLs with information about redirects or other changes.
