Is anyone seeing a crawl yet, my server is being bombarded right now. Just wondering, will it increase traffic?

While nowhere as popular as Google, ask.com does have enough users I'd classify it as significant. Dunno if my site is typical, but I am getting 7% of the total hits I get from Google from ask.com. I rank very well in both these SEs. Only SE besides Google where I get more hits from is Yahoo. I consider ask.com sufficiently popular I'd be concerned that I was doing well there. Ask.com ain't like say Wisenut, where that site of mine didn't get one hit from last month.

AJ has around 4% of the search market. Good demographics. Scroll down through the AJ forum and you'll find more info.
