Ask Jeeves and Lycos Enter the Search Engine Optimization Field

"In a highly surprising move, two well known smaller search engines have entered the organic search engine optimization market! Ask Jeeves and Lycos are both offering services in a sector has traditionally maintained a symbiotic but armís-length relationship with search firms. While both firms have long offered assistance to webmasters through programs such as Lycos Insite-Select and AskJeeves Interactive until recently no search firm offered direct organic SEO services. This may mark the beginning of a trend that should concern SEO practitioners, webmasters and search engine users."

Since Jeeves has abandoned its search engine, they have to do something. Basically any move into another industry makes sense for them.

i certainly would not be concerned about AJ moving into SEO/SEM or any industry that they choose. Though i would raise an eyebrow if they were planning solely to optimise for their own systems.

Ask Jeeves denies this whole story.

It is simply a case of strange bed fellows.
