Ask Jeeves introduces video games and music smart answers

Ask Jeeves UK has introduced two new Smart Answer features that provide content for video game and music related searches direct to the top of the page, eliminating the need for users to navigate through the traditional “ten blue links”.

In an attempt to keep up with the numerous features Google adds on an almost weekly basis the search engine has teamed up with IDG Entertainment to provide product descriptions, images and webpages as well as links to cheats, FAQs, pricing information and trailers for upcoming releases.

Ask Jeeves has also partnered with All Music Guide (allmusic.com), providing musician and band biographies, discographies, lyrics, pictures, and product price comparisons.

For example, with the query “Foo Fighters”, the Smart Answer box gives a biography provided by allmusic.com, further links for album and song details and links for more pictures of the band provided by Ask Jeeves' Picture search.
