Ask Jeeves emerged as the highest-gaining search engine in the period.

The search engine experienced a 77 percent growth in market share to reach 2.6 percent.


So proud, so proud. :)

Ask is expanding in Europe too, they will be launching their SE in France next year.

It will be interesting to see how Ask preceeds in the Euro market, if they will enter the different markets as "Ask" or as "Excite". My understanding is the Excite brand is better known in some of the countries.

They've been hitting the advertising trail heavy in my market.

It's never easy to grow a lot...but when your market share is infinitesmally (sp) small...it is relatively easy to have big jumps.

Regardless...it is such a general non-entity in terms of driving business to a site.

In truth...MSN is generating less than 10% SE traffic to my site and I have some very strong rankings....and ASK is a weak weak weak version of MSN.

They have about 8 more growth quarters like the last one...and they will reach MSN's traffic.
