Remember Lycos? It's planning a new search engine for launch in 2013

Lycos to return in 2013, planning new search engine

| Internet & Websites News | Posted: Dec 27, 2012 5:20 pm

The once king of search Lycos is planning a comeback for 2013. The exact details of what type of search product they will offer is still a bit of a mystery. CEO Rob Balazy, in a recent interview said "it will offer content on the page itself without having to click off to pages in individual search results"

Back in the late 90s Lycos was what Google is now. Everyone trusted it for their web search needs, it was eventually over taken by giants like Yahoo, Alta Vista, and of course Google. Over the last decade, the name Lycos has all but disappeared from monitors across the world.

 

At the moment you can still search the web using Lycos, but it is being fed by a deal with yahoo, who in tern has its search fed by Microsoft's Bing. Personally I am excited to see if Lycos will truly bring something new to the search table in 2013 or if they will just rehash the same played out business model we continue to see.
