Ask Jeeves stops paid inclusion

Updated 03-03-2004

To compete with Yahoo's new search and Google, Askjeeves will stop accepting advertiser for inclusion in its Web database. Instead what paid inclusion will do is allow web sites to be indexed more regularly in search engines. This is the same system which Yahoo has just announched. However Google still don't require payment for sites to be regularly daily or every 48 hours.

A statement from an Askjeeves vice president Jim Lanzone stated, "After much testing of paid inclusion the company found that it can negatively sway search results—producing more commercial and irrelevant lists of Web sites, Lanzone said. Ultimately, that hampers the search experience. We're never going to mix church and state again," Lanzone said.

This and Yahoo's new search database could spell much more competition for Google.
