I tried it for a number of sites but found that most of my traffic was coming from one search engine - Findology.com.
It seems very strange that most of the traffic was coming from a search engine with far fewer searches per month than Lycos and that I was also ranking much higher on Lycos in their results compared to Findology.
I sent Lycos an email asking them about it but just got a stupid canned response.
This is Aaron, an account manager with Findology.com. We’re currently doing 2 billion searches per month in our network that is comprised of sites like IGN.com, Rottentomatoes.com, and many more. We have a great relationship with Lycos due to our high quality traffic from these sites. It seems like you are questioning the amount and not the quality. I suppose it’s a good thing that we are surprising people by surpassing expectations, but I do want to make sure that you are happy with the traffic that you are receiving. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Aaron, are you guys the search engine Rupert Murdoch is taking a controlling interest in? I see you have a cozy relationship with Ruperts IGN AskMen and RottenTomatoes properties on your new portal. He could sure use your IM platform. I like the portal by the way. Is Looksmart handling your ad center and are they still the main content provider? Good luck.
