Lycos

(World-Wide Web)
A World-Wide Web index, served by Carnegie Mellon University. It allows you to search on document title and content for a list of keywords. Lycos is probably the biggest such index on the web. By April 1995, the Lycos database contained 2.95 million unique documents.

The Lycos database is built by a Web crawler that can bring in 5000 documents per day. The index searches document title, headings, links, and keywords it locates in these documents.

The Lycos servers are efficient but overloaded. Failure to connect or "please try later" messages are common.

Lycos

(Lycos, Inc., Waltham, MA, www.lycos.com) One of the major Web search and content sites on the Web. In 2000, Lycos and Terra Networks, S.A., the leading provider of content and Internet access to the Spanish and Portuguese markets, merged to become Terra Lycos.

In early 2004, the company restructured and redirected itself from portal status to become a vast social network and online community. This so-called Lycos, Inc. division, based in the U.S., was sold in October of 2004 to Daum Communications Corporation, the leading Internet site in Korea. Acquired in the transaction were the flagship Lycos.com and its specialty sites that include tripod.com, angelfire.com and hotbot.com. See Web search engines.
