Ask.com to Launch AskCity.com

The former search engine of AskJeeves.com, Ask.com, has launched it's newest engine called AskCity. AskCity focuses on a more localized search to try and win some market share from the top engines like Google and Yahoo who lead the pack in quantity (hits) and, to most, quality (relevance of search results). Ask.com is looking to pick up some of that market share by providing more detailed results and listings around the given location than the typical local search engines.

According to News.com, AskCity will integrate services from established and successful sites such as Citysearch.com for business reviews, TicketMaster for event tickets, ReserveAmerica for campground reservations, Fandango for movie ticket purchases and OpenTable.com for restaraunt reservations" all owned by InterActiveCorp, as those sites have been perfecting on their algorithms and features for quite some time.

AskCity.com is said to integrate search results with feature filled maps as well as ticket booking and reservations for restaurants to add to and improve on Ask.com's search engine and services offered by other search engines. The new site may not jump ahead of the game but we can't wait to see what AskCity.com will have to offer in terms of features and functionality over the likes of Google.com and Yahoo.com.
