AskJeeves to leave Overture 4 Google's Adwords

Google adwords will be apart of Ask.com

Ask.com will continue to offer its own paid-for search products but results from Overture's pay-for-placement network - will be replaced with those from Google's adwords.

This will have a slight effect on the Overture Keyword Suggestion Tool.

The new overture keyword suggestion tool for the January search results has just gone online:

who is doubleclick? is it owned by jeeves?
If so, why aren't they fixing their links? all doubleclick links are dead.

this tells me that jeeves doesn't own doubleclick. If so, are they terminating contracts with them?

example..search for <dell>...doubleclick gives <gateway> as an add result. All links in that result are dead.

another one. Search for <flowers>..doubleclick gives< 800flower.com> as result...all dead links?

1)How is doubleclick affiliated with jeeves?
2)Why are they so slow to fix the problem? (it's been a long time now.)
3)If doubleclick is not part of jeeves...what would they do in place of that area of advertisement?

There's no mention of this in the press sections of Google, Ask, Teoma, or Overture yet. I stickey-mailed JeevesGuy for confirmation.

this is relatively old news.... (the deal was made in the fall 2002)
Do a search on google ...

Do the same search on Aol & Ask - and look at the difference in terms of how the "adwords" results sort of "blend in"

(the adwords boxes are not required)

thus, this is why they may have gone relatively unnoticed.
