I setup a website by installing WordPress about two months ago. I did not post anything until yesterday, but prepared the "privacy policy", "terms of service" and "contact us" pages.

Just after my first post, I checked the status on search engines (Google, Bing, Yandex) and realized that Yandex has marked the "privacy policy" page as low quality.

Actually it is not limited to that page, the "terms of service" page has the same issue from time to time. It seems that Yandex is really confused.

Even if those pages are not indexed, it is not a problem for me, but still I have some worries.

  • Since there are just a few pages in total, does Yandex completely blacklist my website due to the low quality pages?
  • If this is a problem, how can I fix?

Note: There is a similar question on Webmasters SE, but it is for Google.

  • How much traffic dies Yandex send to your site? It is next to nothing for mine. I don't care what Yandex thinks. – Stephen Ostermiller Nov 5 '18 at 22:52
  • @SimonHayter I do not know. :) – ahmedus Nov 5 '18 at 22:59
  • @StephenOstermiller At the moment that website has no traffic at all, because I started to post yesterday. I'm planning to add some content about Turkey (however in English), Yandex's market share is not bad in Turkey. – ahmedus Nov 5 '18 at 23:05

    @ahmedus this is about low quality sites: yandex.ru/support/webmaster/yandex-indexing/… – Evgeniy Nov 6 '18 at 13:52
