Lycos suddenly more important.
From Nicholas on 11 May '99
I've seen a dramatic rise in hits off Lycos for many search
strings, since Lycos recently incorporated the Netscape
"Open Directory" listings.

Background:
Newhoo.com started by a couple of guys from Sun in mid-1998,
using volunteer editors.
Netscape bought it in Fall and renamed it the Netscape Open Directory.
Lycos is now using the OD.
The OD will pass Yahoo in total listings around early 2000.
