huge range of services

none that I can think of

Where do I start with probably the most advertised of all the web portal, search engines of them all. This is quite hard as this website offers you so many different services it is nearly unbelievable! (well probably not unbelievable, just vast!). Here we go! ~~Searching~~ There are two ways of...

“Useful”

published 30/07/2000

Easy to use

None

Lycos. co. uk is a very useful search engine. It is very quick and will bring up accurate searches, instead of the usual irrevelant searches. It is very user-friendly, as it is not very difficult to use. The website itself is quite decorative and quite pleasing to the eye. I also quite like the...

“good choice”

published 23/11/2000

really accurate

not as massive as yahoo

Yahoo was always my favourite search engine and imthink that was because it was highly publicised. I think it is a really good search engine, but there was this one time when i just couldn't get what i was looking for and a friend said to me "just look at another search engine, try Lycos" i...

“Lycos is essential”

published 02/09/2000

efficient search engine

none that i can think of

Lycos.com is an essential search engine for anyone who really wants to be efficient for sourcing for info on the web. Lycos, in my opinion returns much more accurate as well as many more sites as compared to say yahoo.com or altavista.com. Not only are the sites more relevant, there are also less...

dishonest service to customer

Lycos.co.uk has a dishonest customer service - Trevor Day The following was happened on 20 to 23 December 2007. I was a customer of lycos.cop.uk and decide to leave them forever after this bad experience. I have a domain signup with them and was not allowed to point my domain to other server...

Free text messaging

Displays the Lycos name at the end of msg's

Lycos is an absolutely great site now and it has really developed over the last few years to be a strong contender with other main web domains such as Yahoo and Alta Vista. However, I now think that Lycos can not just compete with these sites but they have now developed into a very powerful web...

“Versatile Lycos”

published 10/07/2001

Very versatile, many useful features

None

I always considered Lycos first and foremost as a Search Engine and have been using it, aswell as Yahoo, for this purpose frequently. Just today I decided to explore the Lycos site thoroughly and I must say I was very impressed. The range and variety of features offered is really quite amazing...

I have been using lycos.co.uk recently because I found that the other big sites were not getting me relevant pages. Lycos is fast, reliable and gives relevant pages from most searches. The free SMS service was a great addition to the site, which has made it a lot more popular, especially with the...

Lycos for me is second best to Altavista. Lycos is a Robot driven search engine which basically is a search engine that uses a robot (also known as a spider, worm, wanderer or crawler) to automatically collect sites for their index. They are different from subject directories/trees which are...

“The one with the doggy”

published 24/12/2000

Free SMS

Less easy to understand than others

I must admit to not actually using Lycos much before today. I wanted to try it out though, because who knows, it might have been great. What I found was not really great, but it was definitely good. I was searching in particular for information on the Severn Estaury. Results from searches came...

Lycos wasnt my first choice of search engines but i gave it a crack once because i went to check out there free SMS service. What can I say about the actual search engine section?

“faithful hound”

published 07/03/2001

Packed with features

none

The big black doggy that fetches all you ask it to is just as cute as the service you get from Lycos.co.uk. Apart from being an excellent and efficient search engine, it is packed to the seams with useful, free features. Everything from finding the perfect match to winning a wad of dosh is...

Quick reliable

None

Not my usual search engine, I stumbled across Lycos by accident and I was pleasantly surprised. It seems very reliable, maybe not producing so many listings as some others but I don't always want 50 odd pages!! It seems very user friendly, if I can use it anyone can!! Results were quick far...

“Lycos”

published 23/11/2000

Fast searching

Not too in depth

Out of all possible search engines available, I would say that this is the second best out of all which I use. It gives fairly accurate and relevant searches, not the gobble de gook that some search engines turf out. One problem that I could find with it was a lack of depth within the search...

Lycos is the only search engine i really use, it comes up with what you ask for and finds you a lot of results. The engine is not the only thing i use, lycos has a huge ammount of facilities like games, sending free sms, downloading mp3s and sounds. So it really gives you a wide choice of things...
