Ever since Ask Jeeves announced they were tweaking the image search results offered by their partner Picsearch, we have suspected they were working on their own technology.
Today, that becomes a reality with Ask’s launch of their own proprietary image search technology.
With the new image technology, Ask Jeeves is also expanding Image Smart Answers, which appear at the top of the search results page for queries such as â€œpictures of Mount St. Helensâ€? from the main Web channel. All picture results can be saved to usersâ€™ MyJeeves by clicking the â€˜saveâ€™ link under each image. MyJeeves is a personal search service where links to web pages, images and selected Smart Answers can be stored, organized, annotated, searched and shared.
