    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.

    Hahaa! it would be good!.....its actually running Google software!

    Bogart....lycos and a few other search companies actually have a licence to use google software!! So what you see on lycos is GOOGLE!

    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

  5. people are used to google, it would take forever to change what they're use to.

    Didn't Yahoo already make their deal with the devil (errr Microsft)...

    Competition is never bad, but what do you think the search engine share needs to be to make Bing/Yahoo relevant? 30% ? 50?
    Cheers,
