The world has search engines other than Google, although it may not seem that way. Yandex is a search engine that serves as the main product of a Russian company named Yandex. Yandex’ search market share in Russia is hovering north of 55%, which is very rare when competing against Google.
Yandex joins Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo and Ecosia among others in fighting for share against Google. While many focus more on Twitter and TikTok and HIFW you see the latest MEME or GIF, there is an ongoing battle in the market for searches. Google dominates now, but many players are going after them not to mention the crossover battles with Instagram, Facebook, Yahoo, and others. How Yandex or any weave in Bitcoin and Tezos eventually is anyone’s guess.
Yandex’ reach however goes far beyond just search engines however and helping people find Anna Kanyuk or Josh Richards. The company is hitting the huge market for payments and money as well as facing a ride sharing showdown with the likes of Uber.
Yandex is the largest search engine in Russia. It is the only one that can access all the languages in use in Russia as well as the country’s major dialects.
With such a large number of languages it makes sense that it would be able to provide a wide range of services in Russia, the most popular of which is search engines. This could include the ability to translate into a native language. However, due to its size, it may be able to cover only a limited number of languages, if any at all.
Now, the company is looking to expand on the other side of the equation. They are currently working with Mercedes Benz on a self-driving car program. This is where they will be able to translate information in Russian into English for the vehicles. Some of the words used would be medical terms and other details about the technology.
There are a number of car manufacturers in Russia, which have already teamed up with Yandex. These include Oveja Negra, Dolomiti, Continental, Porsche, Hyundai, Saab, Volkswagen, and many others. Now the work is on to connect all these with other car manufactures and suppliers.
The idea is to create a system which will allow people in Russia to easily find their desired car from anywhere within the country. While driving down a country road, they would be able to enter the specific model, make, and color of the car they wanted to look up in the vehicle. They would then be shown a map on which the vehicle was located. The idea of self driving cars along with self driving electric trucks has an enormous future, and that potential extends into delivery robots, scooters, high speed rail, and other improved forms of transportation. Certainly Elon Musk of Tesla is pursuing this as well.
This will greatly help both car makers and consumers to connect with one another. Instead of having to go to a separate web site each time they want to know about a particular car, they can use the same technology for all of them. This would be of great benefit to both and would enable the search engines to be more interactive with the people who use them.
This type of system will also improve the communication between car makers and dealers. It is very difficult to keep track of every car that sells in Russia. However, it is easy to manually add new models to a database, if it doesn’t already exist. If you can allow a car dealer to search for the models and types of cars you are selling, you can save a lot of time and hassle.
It is easier to find a used car now than ever before, but it is still necessary to keep track of every vehicle’s registry. With this, a dealer will have a way to easily locate the vehicles he or she is looking for at any given time. This should take some of the pressure off of the dealer as well.
