I have a number of UK clients that only serve the UK and want listing in askjeeves. Presently this isn't happening via traditional spidering.
All these clients are prepared to pay but do need confirmation that they will be included in UK results. And, on a slightly different point, does anyone know if AJ filters the UK results and if so how? By IP, .co.uk domain etc
Looks like your clients will be getting their wish. [ask.co.uk...]
As for having a distinct set of UK results and the methodology for filtering: Indeed we do have a UK index on Ask.co.uk . It is accessed through radio buttons ("UK websites" "Worldwide web" ), however we can't disclose the methodology for identifying UK sites.
Can you disclose roughly when you think the UK submission service will go live? I am doing submissions for a UK site at the moment and would wait a few days if it was going to be soon...do you think it will be a matter of days or weeks?
