Bill Slawaski over at SEO By the Sea has a great post on "Edison" the new Social Search Ranking Algorithm from ASK.com. The new algorithm will combine Teoma and Direct Hit technologies both of which have been dubbed "the original social search engines". According to Bill, Ask.com has had three different patent applications published in the last three weeks.
Apostolos Gerasoulis, co-founder of Teoma Technologies discussed and confirmed the existence of Edison with Jim Lanzone, the CEO of Ask.com last week at SES NY.
