“Verified” icon

An organization's card on Yandex.Maps or in Yandex Search can display a special “Information verified by owner” icon. It is displayed by organizations that:

  • Have a verified owner.
  • Have a Yandex Business Directory profile that is at least 90% complete.
  • Have their information updated by the owner at least once a quarter.
  • Have the “Open” or “Temporarily closed” status.

The “Verified” icon is displayed differently in Yandex search services.

The icon is placed next to the business name in search results.

A special mark is added to the business profile.

To have your business display this icon, you'll need to confirm the management or ownership rights to your business, check its information in the Yandex Business Directory, and add at least three photos. To check your profile's completion percentage, go to your business page in the Yandex Business Directory interface.

The icon appears in the profile and on Yandex.Maps within three days of updating the data.

Owners of marked businesses can manage profile changes suggested by Yandex.Maps users. You can check the information, accept or reject changes on the Edits page. If the business owner doesn't make a decision on the edits within three days, they are transferred to the call center for standard verification.

Yandex can remove the icon from a business profile if:
