Just noticed commercials for ASK on TV. I am glad to see someone else besides Google MSLive and Yahoo in the news.

I think there is some weirdness in the SE market share. If Yahoo and MSN have the market share thats reported, why do i never see that reflected, in any site over several years ? Seems to me the share is more like Live5%, Yahoo 10%, Ask 15% and Google 70 %.

If Ask refined there results, stopped framing there results and kept campaigning they could become the second most popular search engine.

If Ask has 15% of the search engine market, that is definitely a lot.

Does anyone have any ideas about what Asks values in its algorithm?

Really? My logs don't support that claim. Where do you get that figure?

I was looking at the opening post. I think I may have misinterpreted what it is saying.

I don't even see Ask spidering my sites anymore. They used to do it so much they were becoming a big pain. You can't be a search company if you don't have anything to search.
