Lycos Launches Vertical Search Products

Lycos U.S., part of Terra Lycos, has unveiled two new vertical search tools designed to help users find people and topics. Lycos People Search retrieves information about people and aggregates information available in numerous online databases, including contact information, alumni directories, professional profiles (from Eliyon), and public records. Lycos Discussion Search retrieves information from Web public community boards and forums. The company says the new products are two key components of the company's personal connectivity strategy announced earlier this year.

Mark Stoever, CEO of Lycos U.S., said:

"We are pursuing a focused path where we know we can add value to our user and advertiser audiences by building on Lycos' core strengths in the areas of search and subscription personal publishing services. The emerging personal connections and publishing space is poised for dramatic growth, and our new connectivity products position us to capitalize on the current environment."
