Ask.com Update

I have arranged for a fellow blogger to do a guest review of Ask.com's Mapping Site. Why? Because the only thing I can come up with is "They blacklisted Catholicgauze!"


TDAXP has another report on Ask.com and its strategy. He compares Ask.com to the murderous, ungodly terrorist group Hezbollah. It is a fun read!

Hmm. What blacklist? I searched not only keywords but also titles on Ask.com's new blog and feed engine and found many posts to Catholicgauze.

I find the same thing on Ask.com's Bloglines engine.
http://www.bloglines.com/search?q=Catholicgauze&ql=en&s=fr&pop=l&news=m

As a matter of fact, I just found a post from Catholicgauze posted a few hours ago.

In fact, it was added and made searchable within 20 minutes of when it was posted to the blog.

From my comment on TDAXP

"No where does the main web search link directly to any part of GTWC. GTWC use to be the first result until it was magically removed when I wrote about their mapping site. Now no direct link can be found with the main search (other blogs are perfectly findable in the main search as was mine)

The blog search was a token they gave me when I started raising a fuss."
