A Look At Ask Jeeves & Teoma

Ask Jeeves shot to fame in 1999 by being known as the "natural language" search engine, which let users search by ask questions instead of using keywords and Ask Jeeves would responded with results which looked like answers to the questions asked.

This looked like very good technology being used, but actually in the start Ask Jeeves had about 100 editors who looked through the search logs and then research for the best answers on the Internet to get a list of websites that seemed well matched to the most popular queries on Ask Jeeves.

But this is has all changed now and today Ask Jeeves results are provide by a crawler-based technology called Teoma which is another search engine Ask Jeeves owns.
