Teoma results are now showing Overture sponsored links in the top two positions.

Yes they are.

I get alot of traffic from ask.com via the teoma database but not directly from teoma.com. So for me this is alittle bit of a none event.

When i first looked at Teoma, i was trying to figure out who the sponsor feed came from, i recognised similarities between Teoma's and MS / LS.

Look at the mouseover on the link -it gives it away.

It's kinda nice that it is only 2. I hope it stays that way. If it does, it makes Teoma's serps the 2nd most spam free of any search engine (AllTheWeb being first).

If Teoma becomes a real player and continues to show only the top two Overture results, that could really drive up the bids for those positions.

They do dominate some nice real estate on the serps though. Almost got me to click on one.

Definetly prominent, even at 1600 * 1200.
