It seems like Ask Jeeves UK has decided to go with Google's AdWords programme.

engine you are super quick today,

just got word back from HQ who said this only went to press at 10am :)

so basically Espotting looks to be out for the main listings, but still down the bottom.

Google does it again.

supanet and a few 1000 .co.uk domain speculators.

they are still on ask.co.uk just not as visible as before

might want to take a look at ASK.co.uk shopping section, looks like that has changed aswell, is that Espotting? or a bit of everything.

The Register has an interesting story on this:
[theregister.co.uk...]

The search company has already used Google AdWords "with excellent results" for nine months in the US, a spokeswoman noted. The financial terms offered by Google for Ask Jeeves' UK business was better, she said. In other words it struck a good deal over revenue split.

Interstingly enough, this leaves Espotting with Yahoo as the only flagship provider of search results, and they don't own any search engines. Some speculators think this is leaving them rather exposed and if the option to nuzzle in to Yahoo for safety was there it might be worth looking at again.

Off course espotting use lots and lots of minor players to show their results and are very agressive at finding more. I know as they keep hassling me. Smaller players are only taking a smaller revenue share than the big boys would want....It would be interesting to see their books:)

Am I correct in thinking that if you use adwords, your ad gets posted in Google AND Ask.co.uk
