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
Looks like your clients will be getting their wish.
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.
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.
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.
