yandex reverse image search

Yandex is a Russian search engine that may be unfamiliar to most American internet users. However, the company has an excellent service called Yandex reverse image search that allows you to find similar images on their site with just one click of a button. This post will teach you how to use the Yandex reverse image search and some helpful tips for using it effectively.

 

What is Yandex Reverse Image Search?

Yandex reverse image search is an advanced image search tool that allows you to find similar images to a picture by uploading it into the service. The results are displayed in a visual table with thumbnails and can be filtered by type of images, license status, color, orientation, and more. For example, if you were looking for pictures of cats, you could search for the word “cat” and combine it with Yandex reverse image search on the same page so that it automatically filters only images of cats.

How to use Yandex Reverse Image Search

Using Yandex reverse image search is simple. Just follow these steps below to discover new, relevant pictures within seconds on Yandex’s site.

1) Go to http://images.yandex.ru/ and search for a keyword 2) On the top of the results page click on “Поиск по картинкам” (see picture below). 3) Upload the image you want to reverse search by clicking Browse or drag-and-drop it onto the text box as shown in the picture below. 4) Click the blue button, “Начать поиск” or press Enter to start searching for similar images on Yandex’s site.

Yandex Reverse Image Search Tips

Now that you know how to find images on Yandex’s service, it is also important to know how to use the search feature effectively so that you can achieve your goals faster. Here are some helpful tips for using Yandex reverse image search more effectively: – Use Yandex reverse image search in conjunction with a more specific keyword. For example, if you search for “cat” on Yandex’s site, you will most likely get too many images of cats to process. Instead, try adding a specific feature of the cat you are looking for such as “gray tabby cat” so that the results are more relevant. – Use a more general keyword first before trying a new one for a better result. For example, if you want to find images of butterflies, start with the word “butterfly” and then try changing it into something more specific such as “blue butterfly wings on green background” if that does not work. – If an image is licensed under a Creative Commons license, it will be marked with the icon next to its thumbnail. Therefore, you can avoid using copyrighted images by making sure that the site is not marked with an icon before you download them.

How to get better results using Yandex Reverse Image Search : On average it is found that Yandex only indexes just over 50% of images on a page for indexing, so if you find a page that looks like it might have your image try to find a text link to the image and re-submit this for indexing.

Tips on using the search engine correctly :

– If you are using several phrases, only use the asterisk * instead of AND.

– Don’t use too many words in your search query, Yandex is very sensitive about this and often ignores short queries that look like spam.

– If you want to find a phrase on a page try putting it in quotes “” so that Yandex knows it is a phrase.

– You can use the ~ character between words to indicate variations in how you write them (e.g. “girl*” will return both girl and girls).

-“Not” (inverted commas) must be put before each word that you do not want to appear in the search results. (i.e girl not dolls, or dance and~school dance~ and school).

– Yandex does not like using the word “AND” as a search term, so if you want to find an image containing all of the words use the asterisk * instead (e.g., for an image with “car” and “motorbike”, search for *car* motorbike).

– You can use AND between your terms, but Yandex only uses it to replace the words that are very different in size (e.g., tiny brown dog will not match with big black cat).

– You need to have a good understanding of Russian to make full use of Yandex.

– If you are not fluent in Russian, try searching for the English term with Roman characters first before using inverted commas around the word to search for it in Cyrillic letters.

– Try not to have more than one phrase within inverted commas unless you are looking for two separate things, otherwise Yandex will ignore both words and won’t provide any results.

– When you use inverted commas, make sure they are around the entire search phrase (e.g., dad” “daughter – this does not work).

– If your language uses non Roman characters try putting it in Latin or Cyrillic letters first then search for the term in this script.

– If you use a word with non Roman characters, make sure to put it in inverted commas otherwise it will not return any results (e.g., Ресторан or ابن).

– However, sometimes Yandex may only search the first few letters of your word, so it is best to try both the English and Cyrillic words to get better results.
