Usenet Crawler Review
USENET-Crawler.com is a new Newsznab-based public nzbsite powered by the newznab platform. Be sure to check them out and signup while doors are still open. Signup to our mailing list also on the special offers page to be notified when a new NZB site is opened and available.
Usenet-Crawler offers access to a large number of NZB files currently they have 1.5 million releases plus they are working hard to delete fake NZB files
This site is designed to make it easy to download NZB files and you can do it without waiting in line to get a membership. The site allows you to download NZB files free; the pages are ad-supported. For those individuals who do not want to join a membership site, this is a good option.
It’s also a good option if you need something to augment the search feature included by your USENET provider. Instead of having to find, and possibly pay for, a membership at a private Newsznab site, you can use options such as these.
USENET-Crawler.com is also working on a way that they can process DMCA takedown requests automatically. The people behind the site hope that this will allow them to address these concerns without having legal issues to deal with.

Public Newznab Sites and Their Uses
Public indexing sites tend to come online and go offline quite regularly. This site offers access to a good number of NZB files already. Given that the site administrators are taking into account DMCA requests from the start, and automating the process of dealing with them, this site could show some longevity.
There are plenty of ways that you can find NZB files on the Internet right now. While the membership sites might be a bit frustrating because of the limited numbers of members that they allow and because it can sometimes take long time for one of those membership requests to come your way, sites like USENET-Crawler.com offer alternatives.
