Terra Lycos Posts Fourth Quarter Loss

"They need to take action in the (United) States," she said, adding that Terra's U.S. portal business, Lycos, is losing market share.

The loss was expected, actually they could narrow losses compared to previous quartals. Not so good anyhow is they could only get there by cutting costs, not by increasing revenues. Severe case of suffering from downfall in ad revenues.

>marketshare: it's a rather vague statement - would be more interesting if we knew if it's about reach/visits or share of ad revenues.

Anyhow, compare Lycos.com now with what it was half a year ago: they have improved. If that's good enough in the competition against MSN, AOL, Yahoo...no idea.

>losing market share

All the portals are losing major market share. I think it is just Google continuing to grow.

What about MSN - aren't they growing all the time?
