Jeeves Growing So Fast So Quickly

I remember when Ask Jeeves was just born, so small, so cute and was so eager to start its life. Now, a few years later, our Ask Jeeves has grown so big.

BusinessWeek published an article named Piper Jaffray Ups Ask Jeeves to Outperform, where I quote "as his analysis of search traffic suggests that Ask Jeeves, with 19% sequential growth from the fourth quarter, grew faster than Yahoo's 13%."

Over at WebmasterWorld a senior member makes sure to point out,

Comparing rates of growth doesn't tell the whole story. AJ is coming from the basement in terms of market share, while Yahoo has a much larger audience. 19% of a small number is smaller growth (expressed as actual numbers) than 13% of a significantly larger number.
