    Lycos is owned by a Korean company and gets 12 - 15 million monthly unique visitors in the U.S. according to their website. The results are relevant but lacking the secret sauce of Google on keyword searches that I am familiar with.

    Who Powers Whom? Search Providers Chart - Search Engine Watch (SEW)

    EDIT - http://www.gordonchoi.com/askcom-pow...earch-20061113 first para also confirms that Google did power the paid listings for a period of time

    Didn't Yahoo already make their deal with the devil (errr Microsft)...
    Microsoft-Yahoo Deal News - The New York Times
    Competition is never bad, but what do you think the search engine share needs to be to make Bing/Yahoo relevant? 30% ? 50?
    Cheers,
