due to legal reasons and intense server costs CaptainCrawl has to go offline - forever.
And - sadly - this is not an "April the 1st" joke.
In the past 4 years CaptainCrawl has been one of the most visited sites in the music blogosphere, with more than 4,500,000 (searchable and tagged) music blogs posts, 16,000,000 unique visits and some 10,000s of high quality one-click audio previews (tracks, mixes, talks). From April 1st 2012, this site will be offline.
CC will never come back as a search engine. The possibility to perform full text searches
within the entire music blogosphere was always a problem for labels & lawyers.
CC got serious complaints from major labels and major artists, so CC has to react on that. And we are talking about big names here. Like Coldplay.
In the second half year of 2012 the people behind CC will start something new.
No details so far, but if you love music and blogs we should definitely keep in
contact via facebook, twitter or google+.
Cheers, and have a wonderful time
Chris of CaptainCrawl
