Find Addresses and Phone Numbers with New Yandex Service

Internet, December 8, 2005. Today, Yandex launched a new service: Yandex.Adresa search for companies, organizations, government agencies, and public associations in the regions of Russia. Contact information for each organization includes the exact name, postal address, and phone number.

The new address service is integrated with the maps. For all cities on Yandex.Maps, search results are presented with both text and points on the map. The required organization can be searched both on a specified street and “somewhere near”. It is sufficient to set the point of your location (for example, the address of Yandex — 40 Vavilova St.) to become the center of the world: after that, all organizations will be sorted by distance from your place (so, you could look for schools near Yandex, to know where to take the kids :-).

“With Yandex.Adresa, the Internet search gets closer to the user, it moves to your neighborhood, to your district and your block,” believes Andrey Strelkov, head of the service. “Unlike information search at sites where geography is rarely critical, the new service focuses on objects that have real, not virtual, postal addresses. In this case, the convenience of location of a store or beauty shop can be crucial for the customer”.

The new service is a joint project of Yandex and Eniro Rus-M, the publisher of the Yellow Pages Moscow directory and the owner of the electronic advertising directory The catalog of companies is set up on the directory’s database, which contains information on more than 850,000 companies and organizations.

“Internet is a strategic line of development for the business directories market in general,” — says Alexander Smolin, CEO of Eniro Rus-M. “Yandex.Addresa provide the users of Yandex with an additional source of carefully selected and regularly updated offline information, and offer the advertisers of Moscow Yellow Pages and Yandex new advertising possibilities.”

Today, Yandex.Adresa provide information on companies and organizations in 58 regions of Russia. The plans envisage expanding the list of regions in the future. To develop Yandex.Adresa service, Eniro Rus-M and Yandex invite organizations that hold regional company directories and electronic maps of Russian cities for mutually beneficial cooperation.
