    Rubbish…completely and utter rubbish not worthy of airing in public. This opinion tract masquerading as news, I mean, not the ads.

    How hard is it? ‘We do search. We can find what you’re looking for quickly and easily’… hmmm, why not ASK Yahoo.com how that strategy’s worked for them so far.

    By the way, in case you hadn’t noticed, you’re talking about the Ask.com campaign.

    Hmm. On the other hand, it always seems to give them air-time. So maybe they’re doing something right by releasing bad ads…

    Sadly and unfortunately, we Americans know Kato Kaelin. He’s not worth talking about in this forum. You are right it is not worth wasting your time with.

    More importantly, Ask.com seems to still follow the old adage that bad discussion is good advertising. Just because someone talks about your product does not mean they are using it. Airtime does not mean revenue.

    It is time for Ask.com to drop their “algorithm” marketing campaigns. It was a bad idea from the beginning.

    As I mentioned in a post, “Marketing Advice for Ask.com” (http://www.johnwellis.com/marketing-advice-for-askcom/), Ask.com is taking a completely wrong approach. The one group they need to appeal to the most, online marketers, are the ones that are bashing their advertising.

    This strategy will kill them sooner than later, if they do not pull back.

    A couple of the ad spot may be intertaining for a minute or to, but I think thier not sending a good message. They seem to be trying to make it sound like using thier search is fun….. But does little to show benefit ….Hey, maybe it’s the youtube mentally behind these ads?
