Google is one of the leading search engines on the Russian market. However, there is one area, namely community knowledge and understanding, where Russians favour Google's local competitor (Yandex). To strengthen its position in Russia, Google wanted to prove its local expertise.
The end of the year – the time when people tend to look back and draw conclusions about the year that has ended and start making plans for the coming year – was believed to be the ideal period for Google to remind its audience of its deep engagement and involvement with local events, places, moods and the life of Russian people.
