It seems Overture is not very liked in the UK. Espotting, which provides the sponsored results in Yahoo UK, now provides the top 3 results in Ask Jeeves UK. The only way you can tell these results are from Espotting is by looking at the bottom of Internet Explorer when you let the cursor hover over the link.

Refresh me - was Overture there before on Ask?

I can't remember seeing results from Overture displayed within that section

Ok, that's what I was thinking too. So it's just an addition, not a replacement?

Yeah, but my point is that Overture obviously lost out on this one. Ask UK is potentially quite a good market, and Espotting was chosen above them. Why?

Has be what makes the world go around love, Op's I mean money, you'll probably find where Overture has grown so fast they are not prepared to move much with what’s been offered on the table where Espotting are still trying to impress I wouldn't be at all surprised to see these type of results switching between either company as one out bids the other

LOL perhaps they should produce a SE offering similar placements to websites
