We thought it would be fun to take a walk down search engine memory lane and look at what some of the search engines from the times before Google’s domination are up to these days. Remember the days when the search industry wasn’t dominated by Google or even the combination of Google, Yahoo and Microsoft? I’m going to look at …
The end seems to be near for Lycos Europe. Although the company’s name used to represent one of the world’s most important Internet businesses, this branch may soon be chopped up, and then various parts and services will either be sold or terminated.
There has been some useful posts of late that discuss the pracitical methods to get started at developing a new site or blog specifically for affiliate marketing. In particular Aaron Wall discusses practical tips for starting a new site and Dosh Dosh looks at choosing the right blog niche.
YouTube has added some new services to their site. They now allow users to organize video clips around categories. A number of online publications are reporting that YouTube has recently launched TestTube on their site.

Lycos, a community destination for broadband entertainment has released The Lycos 50, the most popular search results for the week ending February 24, 2007.
“American Idol” contestant Antonella Barba had a surge in Web users searching for her. Not because of an outstanding performance on the show but because news surfaced that there were nude pictures of her on the Internet.

Lycos U.S. recently launched a Discussion Search product that should be a hit and a People Search product that might charitably be called a sacrifice bunt.

Lycos features a weekly top 50, and according to the braintrust of the search engine, this is the first time anything related to the Iraqi war has made the top spot.
The past year has been one of major transition in the search engine industry. Changes to the landscape have been enormous with mergers, acquisitions, and the easing of several formerly big-players out of the sector or, in the case of AltaVista, Lycos and LookSmart, into the minor leagues.
