ask jeeves & espotting

Hi,
First time on the forum - after some advice about ask and espotting.
We have several PPC accounts including adwords, Overture and espotting which are all doing ok but i've noticed that our presence for our top keyword on Ask is really low. Now espotting says in it's ad blurb that ppc will get a top 10 place on ask jeeves -
"Espotting's Top 10 results appear in Ask Jeeves' meta search listings."
There are only two ppc bids on our main keyword (v. specialised)- we do appear right at the bottom of the page in the "SE's I have checked for you" box. I'm not sure but is this what Espotting mean?
Are there any other ways I can cost-effectively get my keywords in the main body of search?
Thanks

Google adwords has got the ASK contract now.

[webmasterworld.com...]

surely if you are doing adwords then you should be showing, unless you are limiting to Google only, and not partner sites.

thanks for the info,
We already have the top 2 places with our main keyword on the main google search so I haven't bothered using this particular keyword in our adwords campaign - I've concentrated on other keywords. Is it worthwhile placing a sponsored ad if I already have the top positions?

I don't know if you can instruct your adwords to only show on Ask. However, I would try it anyway. Afterall, you have nothing to lose.

You can NOT pick and choose where your adwords will show (if you could then everyone would choose AOL)

Why dont you go direct to ASK instead, they are always keen to direct deals, and it would solve all your problems :)

Once again thanks - probably Ask's answer links is the best option for getting a higher position. I'll try this and tell you how i get on.
