Will the Open Directory crush Yahoo?|
From Nicholas on 30 Oct '99
Wow, what a headline. Actually, it probably won't. But it's becoming
a real player. Originally NewHoo, it's become the default directory
for Lycos, Hotbot, AOL.com, and last week AltaVista.
Its reach may already outstrip Yahoo. Haven't crunched the numbers
yet, but I'm getting hits over all kinds of site logs.
Because it will outstrip Yahoo in total listings within the next month
or two (or has it already?), it will probably be "discovered" by the
U.S. newspapers in January.
In any case, it's already big. Time to list!
