@little-wow alerted me to the fact that the main page on cc.org that points to CC search still is connected to search.cc.org (and not beta ccsearch.org): https://creativecommons.org/use-remix/

Thoughts on whether this should remain this way for now, and we review again in 2019, given that the beta only searches images?

We should certainly link to CC image search somewhere on the front page, but people still need to find search.cc.org until we can fully replace it. I can't see us doing that until we have indexed a more complete catalog, including other content types besides images. As of now search.cc.org has hundreds of thousands of monthly users.

Yeah, I think I agree.

Beta ccsearch is linked from search.cc.org. Not sure if there's a place to link to it on the main site. Maybe just on that same page say we have a beta CC search and link to it underneath the main one? thoughts @little-wow ?

I think that's too much. I'm not sure what benefit search.cc.org has over ccsearch.creativecommons.org, but I don't feel like anyone is going to complain about that link going away and it could be a way to drive users to the new search and also improve SEO

Then I think we should keep status quo for now until search team is comfortable with replacing search.cc.org with the beta.
