Turbo pages for media sites can be generated:
  • Manually from the RSS feed.

The steps for turning on Turbo pages and displaying them in the search results are described below.

  1. Step 1. Generate and upload the RSS feed

To display Turbo pages in news stories or Zen feeds, you need to create corresponding RSS feeds. For more information, see Displaying Turbo pages in Yandex.

Step 1. Generate and upload the RSS feed

If your site uses Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla or 1C-Bitrix CMS, use plugins to create the RSS feed.

If you are using another CMS or the suggested plugins don't suit you, create the RSS channel yourself.

Step 2. Upload your RSS feed to Yandex.Webmaster

Upload the RSS feed using one of these methods:

This method is suitable for small sites and mass media. You can send up to 1,000 pages at a time.

  1. Put the RSS channel generated on the first step on your site's server and update it regularly (for example, once an hour or on request to the server).
  2. Enter the RSS link in Yandex.Webmaster (Turbo pages → Data sources).
  3. If you use authorization to access the RSS channel, enter your username and password. To do this, click the enter your username and password link on the Turbo pages → Settings page. The Access settings block opens.

Step 3. Install the tracking tag.

To install the web analytics tag, do the following:
  1. Go to the Turbo pages → Settings page in Yandex.Webmaster.
  2. In the Tags section add the web analytics system and specify the tag ID.

    Supported web analytics systems:

    Yandex.Metrica

    Specify the tag number. For example, 123456.

    To make it easier to work with reports, use the same counter on the main site and on its Turbo pages. Learn more about viewing Turbo page reports in Yandex.Metrica Help.

    LiveInternet

    If the tag is only installed on one site, leave this field blank.

    If the tag is installed on multiple sites, specify the name of the tag. For example, example-host.

    Google Analytics
    Specify the tracking ID. For example, UA-12340005-6.
    Mail.Ru

    Specify the tag ID. For example, 123456.
    Mediascope (TNS)
    Project ID tmsec with the “- turbo” ending. For example, if the example_total tag is installed for regular site pages, then specify example_total-turbo for the Turbo pages.
    Other

    If your web analytics system supports installations as a one-pixel image, you can add it to the Turbo page.

    You can also include additional parameters in the URL to send them to the web analytics system:
    • {referrer} — Referer.
    • {referrerStarsEscaped} — Referer for Mediascope (with escaped character *), to connect this system without specifying the ID.
    • {pageTitle} — Page title.
    • {originalURL} — The original page URL.
    • {screenWidth} — The screen width.
    • {screenHeight} — The screen height.
    • {random} — Pseudorandom number (a new value is generated for each occurrence in the string).
    • {requestId} — Request ID (one per page).
    • {clientId} — Client ID (one per user's browser).

    Example:

    http://some.doma.in/{screenWidth}*{clientId}/{random}/{originalURL}?title={pageTitle} 
  3. Click Save to apply the changes.
