How often does AskJeeves update its index?

I've noticed that AskJeeves doesn't update very often because my company's title tag from several months ago (late April/early May) still appears in their index. Does anyone know how often AJ tends to update their index?

does anyone really track teoma updates? do they get enough traffic to warrant such attention? I don't think so. At least, not yet. anyways, I think buying ads on AskJ is way more effective than their SERPs. IMHO

regarding the updates of AJ's index. I think due to a lack of regular activity over previous years, certainly no regularity to updates - most have found it not important.

Stupid of AJ - not to do regular crawl/update cycle but one thing i now is teoma holds orphans in its index longer than any other search engine.

Re-index schedule used to be between 3-6 months occasionally a couple in one month in the past, but the level of re-index was always sporadic and mainly shallow, hence why teoma's results outside of g, msn and yahoo/atw is probably the worst.

Not sure why AJ as in the CORP who have got all the tools, making some quite smart acquisitions of various specialised service providers and still they can't quite get it sorted out.

I don't suppose AJ are to bothered - their growing and profitable!
