I calso hecked Ask Jeeves and they are now only showing paid listings on top with Sprinks from about.com in a drop down menu next and then Looksmart listings last.
Looks like the same database at [ask.com...] to me. Maybe your region has updated ahead of where I'm looking at. Thanks for the heads-up though, I'll be keeping an eye out (what a disgusting expression.)
<added> And if Teoma has updated, then they are using my site description from a couple months ago.
Teoma has definitely updated, because my rankings were horrible the last time I checked (February 3rd) and now ... not too shaby!
Pages went up end of November, now in. No Yahoo, no ODP, did_not pay. Coming up for main search phrases, a few spots lower than at Google. They're using the meta description.
It is not a *new* site on its own, it's part of a site that's been up for a while, in a directory.
New site redesigned in January now in. Using top graphic alt tag, H2 and part of first sentence for description. Not paid. Another older site with minor changes a few months ago is now showing new page title and coming up for the new search term.
No ... I didn't pay to submit, but I did write to them many months ago and asked to be included as they (at that time) had no way to submit. They wrote me back and said they would try but wouldn't guarantee anything. Pretty darn good service I thought! I wrote about it here:
[webmasterworld.com...] but got an 404 error when I tried to pull up the thread to find the date I wrote them.
