Spain Says Hola to Ask Jeeves

Word that Ask Jeeves has just released a beta version of their new search service for Spain at: http://es.ask.com. The engine provides access to both web and image databases. Three radio buttons below the search box allow the searcher to limit their search to Spanish language content (default), sites from Spain, or the entire web. Like other AJ web search services, relevancy is determined using their Teoma technology.

Results pages look similar to what you see at Ask.com. They include links to cached copies of pages, links to the Binoculars "page preview" feature, and a clickable list of related topics. The MyJeeves personalization service is also available.

At the moment, there are no ads visible on results pages. An AJ spokesperson said the company hasn't made a deal yet with a paid listings provider.

Ask Jeeves Espana is AJ's third international property. Along with Ask Jeeves UK they also operate Ask Jeeves Japan which launched as a beta in August 2004.
