AskJeeves Forum?

AskJeeves owns Direct Hit and now Teoma. They represent a powerful referral driving search engine.

Do you think we could use and sustain a forum covering all 3?

Based on my traffic and experince my vote would be no. Leave them where they are.

I don't know. I think they may be up and comers that we should probably be looking at for future growth. They seem to be trying to spread their wings. If its up for a vote, I say yes.

No. But an up and coming search engines forum would be better, for Wisenut, Teoma and Ask etc.

I get only a little traffic from Ask. I have never really gotten a handle on Ask and Direct Hit and now Teoma in this mix and I would like to.

On another note I think it would also be neat to highlight up and coming SE's - but maybe that is already handled in Alternative forums.

DirectHit is a steady performer for me and with the recent SE conversions/experiments re ppc, it's becoming more important. I've never done well w/ ASK, though some moderators here have repeatedly pointed to strong performance in my categories (travel & real estate). Add the wildcard Teoma and I'm very interested. I vote yes.

I'm still looking for another NBCi.

We can always throw it back.

My vote is yes too. I haven't spent much time or attention on ask in the past, but I do think they have a nice percieved niche position in the SE market. I know techies who will claim that ask is better for certain types of searches than even google, and thats before the teoma additions. I think they have nowhere to go but up or out(overture).

We get pretty good traffic from Ask. Certainly enough to warrant posting and sharing info regarding the engine.

Add Wisenut and Teoma and I think we will have an active forum. I vote yes!

I also suggest a WiseNut forum, it will be intressting to see how they present the SERP with the new db comming up soon, if you look at there white paper, you will see that they are fit for fighting.

I have seen a slite increase of visitors from ASK, but it's still below 1 % of my visitors come from ASK.

I on the other hand have lost significant traffic. I could tell almost to the minute they had teoma results on/offline while they were testing this. I think it will come back. (ummm, aj/dh is another one of those little seo secrets we don't talk enough about)

>another one of those little seo secrets

That was really the point in my comment about "looking for another NBCi" -it was the joke of the internet as far as SEO-driven traffic, but when it came to conversions it was a gusher. I'm hearing the same about the ol' butler. Keyword: demographics.
