Yes there was some disagreement about it. I felt we needed to wait for them to make it official.

Nice - now i see so many of our sites having nice placement in ask/teoma

Just wanted to point out that this is on the ask.com sites .... not ask.co.uk :( we're still subjected to direct hit results.

So do you think this will bring Ask Jeeves back from the dead? *sorry* I guess that was mean.

Does anyone get any really good refers from Jeeves?

December averaged about 500 a day from AJ/DH compared to 1k for google for a couple of the same sites. Couple others only get a few. It's hit and miss.

I get very good traffic from ask.co.uk it seems to be very important for the uk market
and growing !
Now with the results coming from Teoma, I think it deserves much closer attention and understanding, I am not listed in teoma and am very nervous, when are they going to open for submissions again?
I am not sure as to how I managed to get my listing under “Keyword” = companies providing = result (3 pages from my site!) I did submit via email early last year, I used to get fair traffic from the results pulled from altavista in the past.
Brett, How about a forum for Ask and Teoma

Welcome Terrier.

Brett already thought of that: Alternative Search Engines [webmasterworld.com]

Thanks grnidone.
Who Knows maybe it will merit more than just "alternative search engines" in time.

I don't know how it is in the US, but in the UK ask.co.uk gets marketed on TV quite a bit. It's a simple and easy to remember URL so people are likely to visit it. Everyone I know gets a pretty decent hit count from Ask UK.
