Ask.com, the Search Underdog

Sara Goo

Ask.com's chief executive Jim Lanzone stopped by The Post yesterday to give us an update on his search site. A year ago, Ask ditched its well-known butler mascot, Jeeves, remade its site and started running commercials with some kind of animal--I think monkeys.


Ask.com CEO Jim Lanzone and The Post's Sara Goo record the weekly Tech podcast in the newsroom radio studio.

In the past year, Ask surpassed AOL to become the fourth-largest online search site. Though this is progress for Ask, it's still a tough road ahead when your competition has become the verb for search.

Jim joined me and Sam Diaz on our weekly podcast. Listen to it here or subscribe to it via XML or iTunes.
