Mail.Ru Group has asked Yandex to remove the project from the largest Yandex.Radar site rating, the RBC said. The company believes that Yandex itself is a player in the advertising market, so rating data will be biased.
Mail.Ru Group has requested that data from Mail.Ru, VKontakte, Odnoklassniki, Games and other projects be removed from the rating. The company criticized the situation as "one of the biggest companies in the Russian advertising market measures this market" as unreasonable. "As one of these TV channels measured and announced TV viewership, the company's interest in this situation is too great.
According to the Mail.Ru Group, Yandex.Radar underestimates the potential customers of Russian companies that do not have foreign players (Google, Facebook, AliExpress), Metrics counters (Mail.Ru, Odnoklassniki, VKontakte). Another competitor of "Yandex".
