Ask Jeeves had bought eTour assets a year ago. In fact I thought that web tours were a rather good idea to handhold beginners through topical discoveries of the web, and eTour used to drive significant traffic to SciFan (my site about science fiction and fantasy books). Well, apparently it didn’t bring much to Ask Jeeves except, I suspect, more unsold inventory.
