Page 1 of 1
Specifically, Lycos' search technology will be used to boost the European NetFind search engine, a service AOL said generated over 50 million page views within the first few weeks of testing.
AOL claims that more than 200,000 of its one million Internet online service users in places like Germany, France, and the United Kingdom choose to search the Internet with AOL NetFind.
One of the more localized features of NetFind is that it allows users to narrow a search down to Web pages originating from certain countries.
Both the AOL Europe and Lycos Europe services were formed through joint ventures with leading media company Bertelsmann AG.
