Silicon Alley Insider is reporting that there could be layoffs at Ask.com and that IAC is thinking about dumping the Teoma search engine in favor of Google.
But a person very familiar with the matter told CNET News.com that Ask.com will stick with Teoma.
Ask.com spokesman Nicholas Graham declined to comment on the potential for layoffs.
Ask.com has undergone so many makeovers it's hard to keep track. A site redesign last year, along within the past few years, has failed to significantly change its market share.
