    I´d like to rank a site on Yandex for a local KW in Moscow. Since I am new to Yandex and read about their No-Links Policy, I am not sure what to do. First, does anybody know whether their No-Links Policy applies to all search queries or not? I read that they started it in April this year as a test and only 2% of the commercial search queries in Moscow were affected. Then I read in another article that this policy affects all search queries on Yandex.

    Besides doing a good onpage, what else can I do? I thought about buying fake traffic, because I heard that they rely on traffic a lot. However I am not sure if this would be a good choice because fake traffic usually horrible for onsite factors like bounce rate etc.

    Is the no link policy implemented already? since they never gave an exact time when it will be implemented but they mentioned sometime this year. :confused:

    Links still work. The niche sites I built links to are ranking well on Yandex even though they are not receiving any traffic from Yandex.

    not sure. I understood it as that they start their test on April.

    Are those commercial or informational KWs?

    I'm sure Yandex only rolled this algorithm out on commercial keywords?
