logo_ask-200609.gifA WebmasterWorld has discussion from SEOs on mostly noticing traffic shifts from Ask.com. Webmasters are noticing an increase in referrals from the Ask.com search engines.

Encouraging results turn sour:

For the last few months it has been a rising source of traffic for me. Up to Friday I was getting about 1000-1200 vistors a day from it. Now down to about 10.

Confirmation from the above by Senior Member BillyS:

Something seems to be going on with Ask recently. I don't get a lot of traffic from Ask but at one point I saw three or four referals from Ask in a row - all in a short timeframe.

Marcia, ex-WMW moderator:

Ask is up to 9.8% for one of my sites that fits their demographic, and that's not even relevant to the overall percentage of search engine traffic sources. I've noticed a steady stream of referrals throughout the day.

Good to see some life from Ask.com in the search forums. I also took a quick look at how Ask.com Image Search Gets Smarter, really, I was impressed. Oh, I am not posting this because they gave me some cool Ask.com Schwag recently. There is true discussion taking place on Ask.com recently.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.
