Ask ditches search for community answers

Ask.com is cutting 130 engineering jobs and outsourcing its search technology, as the internet icon finally concedes that it cannot compete with Google and Bing in the search market. In a move similar to Yahoo, which recently outsourced its search technology to Microsoft, Ask.com will stop working on its search algorithm and instead hire a third-party company to provide that technology.

The company is laying off engineers based in Edison, New Jersey, and in China, althouth it has not disclosed which companies it is approaching about a search partnership. Ask.com, which digital conglomerate IAC bought in 2005, plans to focus on developing its online question-and-answer service, in which actual humans field customers' queries. An "ask the community" program launched in July.

Ask revamps search with community-based answers

Ask.com has launched a new site focused on Q&A-based queries, with results based on user generated answers to questions. The move comes as the fourth biggest search engine looks to gain lost ground on rivals Google, Yahoo and MSN’s Bing.

Rather than relying solely on the Web, the updated Ask.com combines real user interaction with standard Internet search to help users find info. The new site actually harks back to the company’s initial question orieanted focus, which it had back when it launched in 1996. This time, however, the power of the people is a core part of the equation.

Google imitates rivals with search results revamp

Google has updated the way it presents its search results, in a bid to make the information more relevant and simpler. The new layout includes features that are already being employed by its rivals such as Bing Yahoo and Ask. The changes include a touched-up logo, and a navigation panel on the page to refine queries with options to search specific categories such as news, images, blogs and video.

The site will also include trending topics, pioneered by the likes of Twitter. So for a hot topic, such as the General Election results, users would be able to refine their search to content posted online within the past 24 hours or past few days. Similar lay-outs are already employed by Bing, Yahoo and Ask, making Google a relative latecomer to what has become a standard design for the search engines on the web.
