Hello!!! (This forum is a great discovery for me!!)
I am a student of Information Science from Barcelona (Spain). I am currently doing a dissertation on the search engine Ask Jeeves (I've never heard it before but i think now that it is very interesting) and I'd like learn more about Ask Jeeves: i. e. How many spiders works at one time? How works these web spider? (meta tags, words occurring in the title, full text...), How builds index? (significant word on a page leaving out the articles, NLP,...), How store the information? What is the method by which the information is indexed? The knowledge database its only compiled by human editors? What criteria uses to rank? (formula for assigning weight to the words in its index), Does it really NLP or only use boolean operators?,...
