I'm in Askjeeves. At a URL my site hasn't been at since February. It doesn't look like they actively are spidering at all for quite some time.

The little fella took robots.txt and buggerd off a couple of days ago. First time I'd seen him on my site. A fleeting, teasing visit. Nasty little bloke!

I have'nt seen a major update on jeeves for a while.
Nell, in regards to your point, i would think that is a policy regarding all search engines rather than just jeeves

I can't see how Jeeves/Teoma can remain competitive if they only include paid listings. As a consumer I don't care a hoot who has paid and who hasn't -- all I want is the information that I am looking for and if I get better results elsewhere, well that's where I'll go.

Yes, the PFI does seem to result in less relevant results, even for non-commercial sites that otherwise got into Yahoo AND Zeal/Looksmart for free in a timely fashion. But can't make it into Teoma.
It's a shame. Ask Jeeves had it's 15 minutes of fame in 2000. I don't know anyone who uses them anymore.

> I have'nt seen a major update on jeeves for a while.
While that is certainly true, there was a good 'shuffle' when Teoma was brought in. My site went up/down in serps for almost every KW. But Teoma or no Teoma, my listing has an old description from last year!

I did see the shuffles, on the teoma > relaunch, and a couple of mild tremors, but nothing that concludes me to believe, that they have an award winning algo, except a relatively dated index of sites.

teoma's and other ask jeeves web properties, should not be discounted at any cost. Things move very quickly in the game of search engines.
