Ah-Ha was a US American crawler-based web search engine that was online from 1998 to 2003. Mostly Ah-Ha was known as an online advertising company. The site offered paid search, i.e. providers of websites paid to be listed at a certain position in the search engine for certain search terms. Ah-Ha also had relationships with hundreds of search engines including Mamma, DogPile, Search123, abcSearch, TurboFind, SureSeeker, BigWhat, InfoSpace, SearchRocket, AltaVista and LookSmart, so who was listed on Ah-Ha was also listed with the partners - but very rarely. Another program of AhHa was "LogoLink", with which providers could place their logo next to their search results on the partner sites. In 2003 Ah Ha was renamed Enhance Interactive.

»Like DogPile and GoTo.com/Overture, Ah-Ha.com has no directory. What appears at first glance to be a directory is really a bunch of shortcut searches. [...] The search results are paid listings, unless none has been purchased. In that event, the results are ah-ha database results. [...] Currently Ah-Ha has relationships with hundreds of 2nd and 3rd tier search engines and gets 5-7 million searches every day (examples include Mamma, DogPile, Search123, abcSearch, TurboFind, SureSeeker, BigWhat, InfoSpace, and SearchRocket). They also have two flag-ship relationships with AltaVista and LookSmart. On both, the top three Ah-Ha bidders who have also signed up for a service called "LogoLink" have their logos and 70-80 character descriptions displayed in the right-hand column. The "LogoLink" program is $9.95/month. Don't count on seeing your ads on AltaVista and LookSmart too often though. Both conpanies rotate different advertisers through their space.« Source
