Anyone getting much traffic out of the Lycos ODP setup:

[dir.lycos.com...]

I don't. Very few and far between.

I got 6 hits from dir.hotbot.lycos.com in all of 2001...does that count? ;) Less than that from dir.lycos.com so far this year.

Absolutely none. In fact, I didn't even realise I was in there - I've never checked before! Though hardly surprising as I can find myself listed when typing in my name listed (apparantly) in the category Regional>Europe>United Kingdom>Business and Economy>Internet>Site Promotion> Search Engine Submitting and Positioning

But when you try and go to the category - it says it doesn't exist!

I've seen 4 or 5 TV ads in this period in the UK - that might explain it.

As for Lycos ODP hits - none that I'm aware of.

Related to this - the directory in the Lycos.co.uk site seems to be a completly independent entity. With its own non-responsive editors and a distinct lack of sites. This is important as search results seem to be weighted heavily on the descriptions given in the directory.
