Getting started

Step 1. Log in.

You need a Yandex account to work with Yandex.Webmaster. If you don't have it, register.

Step 2. Add the site to Yandex.Webmaster

Note. You can only add a site with its own domain to Yandex.Webmaster.
  1. Click theAdd site button.
  2. Specify the site URL that will be shown in the search:
    • By HTTP or HTTPS protocol.
    • With or without www prefix.

    For example, https://www.example.com. The Cyrillic address will be automatically recoded to Punycode. In this case, the page URL encoding must match the content encoding.

  3. Click the Add button. The site will be shown in the My sites section.

Step 3. Verify your site management rights

In the Access rights section, choose a verification method. To verify your rights, make changes to the site.

If you added the site with its subdomains to Yandex.Webmaster, use simplified verification of rights.

After verifying the site management rights, you can transfer your rights to other Yandex.Webmaster users. The user you grant the rights to will have unrestricted access to all of the service features. Learn more in the Delegating rights section.

Note. Yandex does not guarantee that a site added to Yandex.Webmaster will appear in the search results. To learn more about what is required for a site to appear in the search results, see the How do I add a site to search? section.
