penalty-punishment-jail-ss-1920

Yandex, the Russian search engine, has been busy, as Anna Oshkalo from the Russian Search Tips blog reports. Now, Yandex says they will warn webmasters and SEOs when they violate their webmaster guidelines — similar to Google’s manual actions notifications.

The warnings that Yandex will give webmasters include these penalty notifications:

  • Buying SEO links (aka Minusinsk penalty)
  • Selling SEO links (aka AGS penalty)
  • Artificially inflating behavioral factors
  • Thin affiliate pages
  • Keyword stuffing
  • Hidden text

Anna also provided screen shots of what the notification looks like. For example, here is a screen shot of a website without a penalty:
