DW and the Russian search engine Rambler.ru have expanded their ongoing cooperation. Rambler, one of the Russia’s top three most popular web portals and a longtime DW premium partner, now includes a selection of news teasers from DW’s Russian website on its news platform. In March the links drew around 600,000 visits to DW’s Russian website in two days.
A compact web version of DW’s Russian news magazine Geofaktor has also been well received by Russian-speaking audiences. The 10-minute online format was recently created as a response to the increased demand for information in regions affected by the current political and social tension between Russia and Ukraine. It took only three days for the format to go from concept to reality– an excellent cooperative achievement for DW’s editorial, distribution and multimedia departments. The modified Geofaktor receives between 30,000 and 100,000 views every day.
