Ask.com answers user queries as well as allowing them to search for links. Aside from being a search engine site, the website is able to deliver answers due to its unique search technology that features its own proprietary Q&A index and algorithms.
Ask.com, previously known as Ask Jeeves, receives many queries that are written as a natural language question. Because of its ExpertRank algorithm, it delivers relevant information by finding answers from the most authoritative websites. This algorithm uses page rankings, identifies topics and experts on the subjects and checks the popularity of many other pages among those experts to determine the relevance of an answer.
