Thread: Best Free Newsgroups Search Sites?

  1. #1
    The one I use the most is
    http://newzleech.com/

    I had some others, but they rarely had stuff older than 24days or what they had wasnt much

    I'm curious if people know of any others that are 100% free and really good

    I'm using newzleech.com and yabsearch.nl for file name search, Binsearch and nzbclub.com for the rest.

    just one word ... RETENTION! RETENTION! RETENTION!

    One BIG problem right now is that very few usenet search engines have kept up with the massive retention increases of the leading usenet providers -- Highwinds, Astraweb, Giganews -- which all have well over 400 days retention currently, and are still growing.

    www.Binsearch.info is has retention of only about 300 days.

    www.Newzleech.com claims 400+ days retention but every group I looked at has nothing beyond 370 days at most.

    www.NZBindex.nl has 400 days.

    www.NZBclub.com has about 450 days retention, so that's what I started using for finding older stuff that other sites might have missed.

    I was just going through my old list of usenet search engines checking retention, and it seems a lot of sites are no longer around.

    Thanks for mentioning this site, never heard about it before.

    A search thru their listings for a.b.hdtv.x264 shows 438 days as the oldest on file, very good.

    A couple problems with this site, in comparison with the other good ones :

    - they don't show if the release has an NFO included, or provide a quick link to see it, like others do.

    - their list of indexed groups is limited to some of the majors, ignoring many other areas all together.

    It seems to be a new site, but it's promissing, their retention is great.

    Something similar happened a few months ago:

    News - Minor Downtime

    Sorry for downtime! Server maintenance didn't go to plan and we couldn't get a reboot till Monday morning.
