SEO texts

Some webmasters believe that for high positions in search results, the query text must be present on the site page. In this case, the text becomes incoherent non-informative and, as a result, difficult to read: not user-friendly. Therefore, Yandex algorithms lower sites with such texts in the search.

Yandex detected that I have this violation. How do I fix it?

We recommend you to delete such texts or replace them. The text should benefit site visitors and answer questions on the topic.

After that, you can use the I fixed it button on the Security and violations page in Yandex.Webmaster. The restrictions are usually lifted within a month after you clear the violation. When the restrictions are lifted, the violation mark will disappear.


You can click the I fixed it button again for the same site after a month. Further, this period is increased up to three months to avoid the button misuse. Therefore, we recommend using the button only when you are sure that there are no more violations on the site.

If multiple users have website management rights in Yandex.Webmaster, agree on who will send the website for re-checking and when. After clicking the button, none of the users will be able to click it again within a month.

I found no SEO texts on my site, do I need to click the button?

If you are completely sure that there is no such violation on your site, we recommend that you use the button.

Which pages of the site contain the violation?

Currently, there are no examples of pages in Yandex.Webmaster that contain this violation. We recommend checking if the texts on your site are easy to read. Usually SEO text may contain unnatural combinations of words and frequent repetitions. Make sure the text covers the topic of the site section in full and contains enough useful information for the visitor.

There're tags on my site. Will the search robot treat them as re-optimization?

If tags are placed on the site for the user's convenience and are part of site navigation or design, they won't be treated as spam. However, if the tags are of no use and are placed intentionally to influence search engines, then restrictions are possible.

Keywords are often repeated in my site's menu and catalog. Would this be considered re-optimization?

The algorithm accounts for the situations in which repeated words may be appropriate and used for the convenience of site visitors. In such cases, this is not treated as a violation.
