On A Roll: Ask.com Launches New 'AskCity' Servicehttp://seekingalpha.com/article/21660Fourth ranked internet search site Ask.com is introducing its new AskCity search service, a city search feature which allows users to locate information about local businesses, restaurants and cultural/entertainment events. Early reviews of the service have been positive, and according to Ask.com CEO Jim Lanzone, the new feature brings together available data from its parent company's other businesses like Citysearch and Ticketmaster. Acquired by IAC/InterActiveCorp in 2005 for nearly 2005, Ask.com (called AskJeeves at the time) has lately been gaining internet search market share. In addition to continuing to help Ask.com gain search market share, AskCity is also seen as a way to tap into ad spending by small businesses, many of which have yet to switch their advertising dollars online.
