Ask Jeeves Adds Comparison Shopping
Through the agreement, DealTime's search technology will work with Ask Jeeves' natural language search engine to provide comparison shopping and access to millions of products through hundreds of merchants.
According to the two companies, the combination of Ask Jeeves' natural language capabilities and DealTime's search algorithms allows Ask Jeeves users to quickly search for and find the products they need at the prices they want. As a result, when consumers ask shopping-related questions such as, "Where can I compare prices on digital cameras?" Ask Jeeves will offer them DealTime's search results.
