Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

OAKLAND, Calif., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The following are comments made by Ask.com regarding today's news of a pending agreement between Google and Aardvark.

"A Google+Aardvark combination in the search marketplace absolutely validates the Q&A space where Ask has been #1 in for years. We welcome that challenge, we're ready for it, and we believe we're the best in the world at Q&A – as we always have been."  - Scott Garell, President, Ask Networks

 "Google's purchase of Aardvark is simply an acknowledgement that Q&A is the future of search. As the #1 brand in Q&A, we've been passionate about investing in this next phase of search for a long time.  Our current technology is unmatched at answering questions using content we've crawled and indexed from across the web.  In Q2, we'll also beta launch a Q+A community that will route the questions we receive to real people with relevant knowledge. This community will reach search engine scale - able to handle more than a million questions a day, faster than Google or any of our competitors. We're singularly focused on Q+A because, in the end, we believe that consumers rather Ask a question, than Google one." - Doug Leeds, President, Ask.com-U.S.
