I have a number of UK clients that only serve the UK and want listing in askjeeves. Presently this isn't happening via traditional spidering.

All these clients are prepared to pay but do need confirmation that they will be included in UK results. And, on a slightly different point, does anyone know if AJ filters the UK results and if so how? By IP, .co.uk domain etc

Thanks

Hi Bareback

Looks like your clients will be getting their wish.
[ask.co.uk...]

As for having a distinct set of UK results and the methodology for filtering: Indeed we do have a UK index on Ask.co.uk . It is accessed through radio buttons ("UK websites" "Worldwide web" ), however we can't disclose the methodology for identifying UK sites.

Thanks

probably for submitting to the .co.uk index, as a means of determining the origin of the site > joking.

If he told you NFFC, he'd have to kill you. ;) This is a deep, dark secret. You can Ask Jeeves, but he won't tell.

>Why on earth not.

Because optmizers would learn how to exploit it. You ready for every .com'er to know how your site got id as a UK site? It would spell a measurable increase in competition for you over night.

Hi Jeeves Guy,

Can you disclose roughly when you think the UK submission service will go live? I am doing submissions for a UK site at the moment and would wait a few days if it was going to be soon...do you think it will be a matter of days or weeks?

Thanks,

ck

Is this the new UK AskJeeves pay-for-inclusion program that you are asking about?

Ask Jeeves UK head of business development David Graham said the new products would guarantee inclusion of the subscriber's URL for 12 months and make their URLs' performance more measurable.

>exploit it

I really can't see either why or how. Maybe I'm being naive but the methods of indentifying such sites should use trusted sources and out of the direct control of the webmaster.

I can't see any conflict between the aims of the SE with the aims of the webmaster in this case.Its almost like the UK Yellow Pages not telling you how to get an entry in your cities book.
