I am pretty sure that Ask had a largeish update this weekend, my traffic is up approx 4 times and I am now getting more referrals through Ask than MSN and/or Yahoo. :)

Update Data probably from Mid January time - which is a reasonable turn around for Ask.

As lots of posters are aware the Ask crawler is out in force - at least we know that pages are getting added to the index.

If "out in force" means "deceased" I'd agree with you.

The thing can't even keep pfi pages in the index now.

This used to be the best quality engine but they just seem to have completely collapsed.

HI Dayo_UK

Hi Great that your traffic has increased. I would like to know which industry you are in? and what is your target market? You are targeting traffic from European countries or from North America?

Very broad range of sites!

Oldest site which is about a year old has now a decent number of pages, without being to specific - features Computer related questions and answers. Target Worldwide.

Newer sites - mostly shopping, targetting UK - starting to show some pages.

Encouraging signs :)
