The magic behind SrchIt.com not only lies in its clean-cut and easy-to-use design, but also in its internal functionality. Online music files (also known as “Mp3s”) are often stored on online file hosts, such as Mediafire.com and 4shared.com. Many of these sites do not contain search vectors of their own, and although search engines such as Google index these sites, the files contained within them are often hidden under a clutter of advertisement and clever SEO marketing employed by rival web hosts. SrchIt’s search engines have been designed to weed through the all the spam and clutter. When a user types the artist and track name of a particular song, SrchIt has been designed to crawl the web and locate the music file from a list of reliable, predetermined web hosts; thus giving the user a list of download options that do not contain spam and undesired solicitation.
On top of a multi-functional Mp3 search engine, SrchIt.com also offers users a way to search multiple mediums of music distribution. Using the same type of interface as the Mp3 search engine, the SrchIt engines also crawl a list of Torrent hosting web sites (ThePirateBay.se, etc.) and online music stores (iTunes) to give users a wide range of mediums to download music files from.
