Anyone notice Teoma results plunging?

Good in every other SE, but not Ask/Teoma

I have really good search results for keywords in Google, ATW, MSN (mostly), but have just crummy results in Ask/Teoma. How can it be that the majority of search engines view my site as relevant to my keywords, but Teoma refuses to see that?

I wouldn't lose too much sleep over Ask/Teoma results.

They are currently providing 0.8% of our referrals - and that's with us at #1 for main search term!

Yeah, I know that the 2 combined are not even in the top 5 of engines. But, it's frustrating anyway.

I would do some deep browsing here in this forum to find the answers to optimizing for Teoma/Ask. :)

As far as traffic, Ask can move some nice traffic depending on your topic. All indications are that it is growing in popularity.
