MetroLyrics hits #1 in Online Lyrics

MetroLeap Media announced last week that its flagship site, MetroLyrics, has become the most trafficked lyrics site in the world. With more than 22 million unique users per month up from 14 million in December 2007, the site has gone from the #3 spot to #1 in just six months and is now also among the fastest growing sites on the Internet in many countries, including the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia. In April, Techvibes covered the news when MetroLyrics converted to a legal lyrics only site using Gracenote’s database. Prior to MetroLyrics, Gracenote cut a deal with power houses like Yahoo, AOL, MTV, and Disney Radio – which makes becoming the #1 lyrics site comes even sweeter. MetroLyrics is the Techvibes Canada Start-up Index undisputed Champ, has a daily traffic rank among the top 500 sites according to the global Alexa rating, and now boasts the number nine Internet property in the Entertainment-Music Category based on total U.S. unique visitors [comScore Media Metrix, All Locations, May 2008]. The site ranking remains close behind powerhouses in the music industry, which is an impressive accomplishment for a company co-founded by a high school student and which still only has four employees.
