Web search engine Ask.com has announced that its butler Jeeves will be returning to the UK, responding to demand from users. Ask says that the return of Jeeves caps an extensive program of improvements for the Ask.com search engine.

Ask.com returns to its original name Ask Jeeves in the UK. The search engine was originally created in 1997 with users asking the digital butler questions and he would retrieve the answers. Ask.com says Jeeves embodies the spirit of British resourcefulness.

Jeeves was dumped from the Ask.com website in 2006. A poll conducted by YouGov found that users of the website wanted Jeeves back. The respondents said that they missed the human touch Jeeves added to the search experience.
