Direct Hit Debuts at MSN Search, Lycos
From The Search Engine Report
August 2, 1999
Both MSN Search and Lycos are now featuring Direct Hit results, and the company itself has just received $26 million in financing from a variety of venture firms.
At MSN Search, do a search, and if Direct Hit information is available, you'll see an image link immediately below the search box on the results page that says "Top 10 Most Popular Sites." Click on the link, and Direct Hit results will be displayed.
Lycos is now also using Direct Hit information by default, within the "Web Pages" section of search results. Direct Hit says the majority of pages listed here will be coming from its database.
The new funding was announced today, and Direct Hit says its plans to use it for boosting its brand name and image both in the search industry and among consumers.
