I know that Lycos has disappeared from everyone's consciousnes for quite some time, but I understand that Lycos has recently relaunched their search engine.
In my site, Lycos has creeped up in my top 10 sources of traffic, starting May 6.
What's fascinating for me is the level of engagement of the traffic that Lycos brings -- if my Google Analytics is showing correct data.
Google's visitors peruse only an average of 2 pages per visit, but Lycos' visitors read an average of 17 pages. Time on site is also double, and bounce rate is incredibly low at 4%. Makes me do a double take each time.
Plus, the visitors it brings to my site are mostly new visitors (96%), which I also like
Has anyone see a surge of visitors from Lycos as well around May 6? Or is it just my site that Lycos finally discovered?
