Seems to have been effective indeed. Sympatico turned up in my February log for the first time ever - a Swedish site in English, not accustomed to seeing Canadian traffic. 0.3% of total traffic for the site - not bad for an exotic newcomer.
I do know - I love Canada [searchengineworld.com] :-)
One of my friends is working overtime for technical support in a large company, he told me that almost 10% of the staff tried to 'discretely" install Sympatico on theyr PC's at work. Most PC are not even tied to a phone line and they did hit the network big time!:)
As for my best rankings on sympatico.ca, out of 50 first places, I leave only 2 spots for the competition... ( is there an emoticon for an Evil grin?)
Most pages have a very sexy noframes content that was aimed at many SE for the same keywords.
Also They have a promotion for DSL acces ending this month.

That's not the interesting part.
The interesting part is when I went to the bottom of the FAST.no page, I found Fast's "FTP search" went straight to FTPsearch.lycos.com and their MP3 search went to MP3.lycos.com.
At the bottom of the Fast page is "¦ FTP SEARCH ¦ MP3 SEARCH ¦ LISTENING ROOM" - all 3 of those lead to Lycos.
