No offense to any AskJeeve fans here. I just can't resist expressing my feelings after seeing the listing results of our company's website.
Our domain name is the same as our company name. There are a few other companys with the same name but none of their domain name matches. Our website is optimized on page and off page with a few very good links. Our website is PR5 for homepage and 4 and 3 for the next 2 layers. However, ... we rank 7th for our company's name in ask.com
It is ridiculous. It has never happened in our website's 5 year history and our site is superior compare to any of those websites that rank higher than ours.
First off just because Google says you have a PageRank of 5 doesn't mean Jeeves thinks so, other words Google's PR doesn't mean anything to Ask Jeeves.
The web sites that come up for your company name have optimized for that keyword better, so don't get mad. Also if your site is so superior compare to any of those websites why are you ranking lower than them? Maybe your site isn't so superior compare to any of those websites as you think.
Jeeves results have always been a bit different to other search engines, becuase they are another search engine, as the chaps before have suggested their is absolutely no comparison between G AJ and any other search engine, as they delibrately are unique with their algo's to try and formulate a more representative / less spammy view of the info available - not that they are always good at it, but never the less they do try with different algo variances.
Regarding your concerns on 'Jeeve Sux', why not come to the WebmasterWorld conference in Vegas and speak to Paul from AJ, about your concerns and try figure out what the problem is and a possible solution to it.
