About Ask Jeeves

Ask Jeeves was the first natural query search engine. A child of Garrett Gruener and David Warthen, Ask was born on November 29, 1995. Ask Jeeves aimed at personalizing web search by providing a question answering service.

They did a good job of marketing, but their product was inferior to many of their competitors so they purchased Teoma. Integrating the acquired technology with the popularity of the Ask Jeeves web site allowed Ask to become a major player in the search market.

As current executive would admit that their search was not competitive a few years ago, they think it is highly competitive now. The first and foremost goal was to create a search which is personalized and has a personal feel about it, now their goal is the best search.

Teoma has a cool technology but the Ask Jeeves website often places 10 Google AdWords ads before the organic search results.
