I reported at the Search Engine Roundtable that Ask.com Advertises on Google.com To Promote Search Quality of Engine. A search on Raccoon brings up an AdWords ad that is marketing Ask.com's search results. Specifically, if you click on the ad, you are taken to a search for the same keyword, Raccoon at Ask.com. That search result sports a nice Ask Smart Answer. It is nice to see Ask.com using paid search in this fashion to promote their own search engine.
