I guess we’re all getting a little tired of writing about Google. Ask has been on the forefront of more than one person’s mind lately.
Jennifer Laycock asks whether Ask is On Fire, or Going Down in Flames? Good question. She points to Nielsen//NetRatings’ April results which show Google’s market share at 55.2%, up 48% over last yearâ€”and Ask’s market share at 1.8% and actually down 2.3% (or down half a percentage point) from last year.
Josh Catone on Read/WriteWeb asks whether Ask’s future should be search (riffing on Allen Stern of CenterNetwork’s plan to get Ask.com back on track). Josh suggests that they should focus on their advertising products instead. It’s not a bad idea.
