When adding a site, specify the URL at which it is available: with or without www, and with the HTTP or HTTPS protocol. You can copy the address from the browser.
If the site has a subdomain, add the primary domain and subdomain to the service separately. You can verify the rights with a single code.
A site added to Yandex.Webmaster should return the HTTP 200 OK status.
Verifying your rights
General information (Summary)
Brief information about errors, crawling of the site by the robot, pages' status in search statistics, and search query statistics.
This section shows the sites you added to Yandex.Webmaster. Brief statistics on the site status in the search is available if you verified your rights for the site management.
If Yandex.Webmaster detects errors on the site, information is shown in this section. The site is checked every day.
The information about errors doesn't affect site ranking or indexing, but we recommend to fix “Critical” and “Fatal” errors. Learn more
You can subscribe to notifications to receive messages by email.
This section allows you to view which pages on your site are crawled by the robot. You can identify the addresses of pages the robot failed to load because the hosting server was unavailable, or due to errors in the content of the pages.
Webpages available in Yandex search (menu section)
The section shows the site pages included in the Yandex search.
A page may be missing from the search results if it duplicates the content of another page, contains spam or viruses, redirects to another URL, or if there was a downloading error.
The service shows the site sections containing not less than 10 pages and making up more than 1% of the total number of pages that have been loaded into the search database.
If you delete a custom section from the site structure, the information about it is preserved in the search engine database.
Check URL status
You can check if the robot knows about a particular page if youverified your rights to the site.
In the URL field you can enter the full page URL or the path from the site root beginning with “/”.
Collection and processing of information usually takes up to 2 minutes. Sometimes it may take several hours. Once the data processing is complete, the report status will change to “ready”.
You can track how Yandex indexes the most important site pages and the most popular pages recommended by Yandex.Webmaster.
To get information about changes by email, configure notifications.
Moving the site
This section contains information about the region set for the site. Region changes take effect after the search base is checked and updated.
If you post texts that haven't been published online before, notify Yandex about it. This can be taken into account when showing the site in the search results. Learn more
Letter case of the site name
You can change the letter case of the site name. It does not affect the ranking.
The changes will be checked and will take effect after the search database is updated.
The section contains statistics on the search queries from the Recent queries section.
This section shows search queries for which the site is in the first 50 positions of Yandex search results. Learn more
Yandex can choose search queries that match your site's topic and thus can bring additional traffic. If such queries are found, they are displayed in this section.

To check if indexing of a certain page is allowed or prohibited, enter the page in the URL list field.

“In queue” — The page is sent to the robot for crawling. The request will be processed within 3 days.
“Crawled” — The page was crawled by the robot. The page information will be updated in the search within 2 weeks.
