Yandex Degrades The Delivery Of Sites With False Pop-up Elements
The searcher has learned to define, whether the pop-up windows are quite harmless advertising or the put-up affairs.
Soon Yandex will start to pull down sites which actively use deceiving pop-up elements. Therefore the searcher strongly recommends to check up the site on presence of similar elements and to remove them.
Alexey Elfimov, the head of search advancement department of i-Media:
“In my opinion, commercial projects will do suffer a little. It goes without saying, there will be "unfairly offended", but this is only a temporary event. Speaking about entertainment portals/sites and alike (where a given phenomenon occurs more frequently), likely, almost all of them will suffer (if they won't be able to eliminate "problem"quickly).
Our position is that we completely support this step and we hope that they will go as far again. Every cheat/spam should get punishment. Many web-masters with deceptive pop-up elements will shout: «We are bear of earnings!» and towards Yandex it will be «-1». From our side (the users) it will be «+1»!».
