Summary

Ask Jeeves.com dropped the famous butler some time ago and implemented a raft of upgrades to create the new ask.com UK. Although acclaimed by critics to be better than Google it still faces an enourmous challenge to attempt to win people over to it's clever search engine. Most notable is Ask.com use of search term suggestions built from common searches conducted by other users on it's Teoma database. Despite being a competitor to Google, Ask.com advertising is sourced from Google. It will be interesting to see the future of AskJeeves in a consolidating market.

“Ask Jeeves must have the world's best marketing...”

Ask Jeeves must have the world's best marketing campaign, because it is the world's worst search engine.

Many people use Ask Jeeves because it has a picture of a butler, and they like the novelty of asking the butler a question. They also think that using a search engine like Google is more complicated.

Let me tell you something. Both Google and Ask Jeeves work in the same way. They remove all the unimportant words from your query (like "and", "it", etc.) and then search through websites for… Read Full Review

Your review does seem a little harsh, Jeeves seems a nice guy, and very well mannered, he always has a smile on his face and always welcome you with "God Morning" or "Good Afternoon"...sorry just kiddin. On a serious note... you do seem to have a bit of experience with a few different search engines, I on the other hand do not. I have always used Jeeves to search for things and not really had much of a problem. But I am going to mark your review as helpful and give google a try so that I can post a review here.

i think ask .com is the best search engine, google in my opinion google uses some of the words you type in your search but thats about it the results are extremly far fetched i like ask .com because it searches for exactly what you typed in the search box pluss gives you a list of diffrent ways to search for it

I tried Ask Jeeves a few times, and I was disgusted. I hope he irons better than he answers!

I always use ask as they search through about 6 different engines for you, so you usually get the information you want quickly and without having to trawl trough loads of site before… Read Full Review

I mostly use ask jeeves when I want to explore several sources of information or I suspect the info will be hard to find. They always seem to provide the right answers and provide comprehensive choices for the consumer… Read Full Review

I totally agree with you Paul. I refer to Ask Jeeves as "My Butler".
