Ask Jeeves worth 40?

Msg#: 393 posted 12:59 am on Apr 11, 2004 (gmt 0)

Is Ask Jeeves worth paying for? Cos I haven't been spidered by them yet.

What exactly do you get for the 40.

Can't find this info easily though, as I've looked for it.

I am assuming (because you are talking pounds) that you are talking about Ask Jeeves UK.

My experience is with Ask Jeeves US but the concepts are the same.

Basically you are paying to be included into the index (Paid Inclusion) on a per URL basis, for a 12 months subscription period. You will be listed in 4 to 7 days and re-spidered every 7 days or so.

You also get click thru reports and query terms.

With Ask Jeeves, you are not paying per click.

Remember that PFI doesn't boost ranking at all!

I don't reckon so. I never paid them 40, but I now get referalls through their search engine anyway.

Ask Jeeves also crawls the web for free and adds URLs into their index using the Teoma technology.

PFI is another option available to web masters to get into the index in a shorter period of time.
