Yandex Now Crawling CSS and JavaScript

Posted on 11.18.2015

Most websites in the English-speaking world don't receive much traffic from Russian search engine Yandex, but for those that do, keeping abreast of changes that may impact their search engine optimization will most definitely benefit their digital initiatives.

Yandex recently announced that they are now able to crawl CSS and JavaScript files - just like Google and Bing. While it appears to only be a test currently (and a test on a relatively small subset of pages), it is very likely the search engine will expand the capability in the future.

Much like its search competition (Google and Bing), Yandex is recommending that CSS and JavaScript files are not blocked.
