Yandex Finds Blogs by Location

Internet, March 20, 2008. Today, Yandex rolled out advanced blog search. Yandex users can now find all posts or comments from Russian-speaking bloggers in a specific city, region or country.

The new feature of the Yandex blog search equips bloggers with a tool to find postings of their fellow-bloggers living in the neighborhood, while journalists and analysts will be able to instantly track public reaction in a particular location.

The new advanced blog search interface makes geographically targeted search easy. Users can conduct searches using several ancillary search criteria, including age, gender, date, blog, community etc.

At the moment, advanced blog search works only on certain largest blog hosting services: LiveJournal.com, LiveInternet.ru, Diary.ru and blogs@mail.ru among others. To add this feature on a service, the owner only has to send a request via a feedback form.
