Picsearch announced today that it has entered into a syndication agreement to supply Lycos, Inc. with image search services for Lycos’ Multimedia Search. This agreement brings Picsearch image search technology to millions of Lycos users, which adds upon Picsearch’s image search marketshare which is already anchored by an agreement with MSN Search.

They are a great addition to the list of leading web names that have chosen the Picsearch image search service because we provide images that are continually updated, uniquely filtered and highly relevant to the users’ queries. We will continue to provide the highest quality image search on the net.”
Lycos, centered with Lycos Vertical Search offerings, is one of the leading Internet destinations in the U.S. Now, thanks to Picsearch, Lycos users have access to hundreds of millions of images, enabling them to refine their image search criteria to meet their exact requirements.
“We recently re-launched our Lycos.com homepage with a key focus on search, including multimedia search,” said Adam Soroca, General Manager of Search Services for Lycos, Inc. “Picsearch delivers the high-quality, relevant image search results our users search for everyday.”
