A pair of announcements from Ask Jeeves Inc. on Wednesday stirred simmering speculation that the Web-search space could see more consolidation after a burst of deals between November and March.
But while rumors persist about some of the Web-search sector's bigger players, many industry watchers do not see any mega-mergers in the near future.
Looksmart and Yahoo just got cozier, as yesterday they renewed their deal [theage.com.au] for Looksmart to provide a feed into Inktomi.
It will be interesting to see what AJ is going to do now that ink and ls have continued on their partnership. And with google's recent server re-config, What is AJ/teoma to do? I was seriously expecting the next big thing to come from them, certainly from what Paul was saying at the conference in Boston. Seems not be happening quite that way.
