Ask Allows Enhanced "Zoom" & "Web Answer" Functions

News comes way that Ask has announced two new very useful features named Zoom and Web Answers. John Batelle has a quick & easy write up on those features but I will try to make it even quicker for you below. Chris Sherman & Gary Price has a more detailed write up at SEW.

Zoom: Search Ask for the beatles and look at the right side of the page. "Narrow Your Search", "Expand Your Search" and "Related Names" make up the zoom feature.

Web Answer: Search Ask for deadliest snake and see [Web Answer] in red. You can then click through to the three other Web answers to see 3 groups of answers.

Forum coverage at Search Engine Watch Forums and I have updated the Ask Jeeves SEM Time Line of Events at Cre8asite Forums.

Side note: Notice how I titled this enter "Ask" versus "Ask Jeeves", but what is weird, Jeeves9000 made a surprise appearance last night.
