Ask Jeeves Upgrades Ask.com

Ask Jeeves Web Properties, a division of Ask Jeeves, Inc., introduced upgrades to the experience, performance, and design of Ask.com. Dubbed Smart Search, the new features should enable users to conduct more effective searches by helping narrow, broaden, or more directly answer user queries.

Ask Jeeves Smart Search features prompt the user with interactive tools, refinement suggestions, or sets of highly relevant links around popular subjects. For some queries, such as images, news, state and country capitals, and dates for holidays, Smart Search also delivers direct content to the Ask Jeeves results page. The company said the site now loads 50-percent faster than the previous architecture. Design improvements include bolding the search terms; more clearly differentiating between the different types of search results; and replacing tabs with radio buttons. Ask Jeeves' proprietary spell check technology, now out of Beta, recognizes misspelled words and offers correction suggestions.
