    On my website I'm getting a decent amount of traffic with people doing searches on yandex from Russia in that are in both English and Russian(Russian phrase than English words). Should I start adding some tags in Russian to some of my posts to help with getting more traffic from Russia? After the US(25%), Russia is the second most common region for visitors to my website at 7.2%. Or would it end up hurting the appeal of my website to the US market as well as drop in ranking on Google English search.

    The tags wouldn't hurt your traffic one way or the other if you are just adding them in addition to what you are using.

    And if it expands/helps your current audience - I say go for it.

    Since starting my website, the bounce rate for RU traffic is 30% compared to 28% for US traffic, I may try that but the type of site I have doesn't have much actual content, its mostly just posting links to downloads.

    If it is just links to downloads then tags should be fine.
