Yahoo has extended its existing partnership to provide paid listings to Lycos Europe in what's called a "multi-year" agreement. The deal covers sponsored search results on Lycos sites for the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Sweden, Austria and Switzerland.
The deal also makes Yahoo the exclusive provider of contextual ads to Lycos Europe properties in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and The Netherlands. Google was the previous contextual provider, to my knowledge, having signed a deal in 2003.
