Ask Jeeves Buys Direct Hit
from the search-engine-consolidation dept
Well, it seems that the second wave of search engines is beginning to consolidate. Ask Jeeves has bought privately held Direct Hit for half a billion dollars. I still have yet to find anyone who uses Ask Jeeves on a regular basis. Most people I know try it a few times and say it’s not particularly useful. Maybe Direct Hit will help it return more relevent results.
