Yes, last week I posted on the Best 10 P2P websites and had peers asking question’s on the best torrent sites to look for, the true thing is many users don’t know which torrent sites can be trusted when it comes to viruses, malware, etc. So I have compiled a list of the best torrent sites so anyone can easily find a reliable and trustworthy torrent site to use. If you have any favorite torrent sites of your own, you can share them in the comments. I have ranked by a combination of Inbound Links, Google Page Rank, Alexa Rank, users opinions, high speed downloads and traffic data, so hope it works for you…
Who else it can be then the master himself, I guess it as violated all their country’s copyright laws, but who cares today, this is the most popular torrent site on the web today. It hosts more then 1.3 million torrents. It also has a nice and simple design with non-intrusive ads at the sides. The search facility works very well as well which makes finding specific files easier. There are various categories ranging from movies, applications, games, pictures, animation, etc. You can also view the top 100 torrents from each of these categories to find the best torrents available and at any given point in time, more than 30 million peers actively trade files thought the Pirate Bay tracker. I did hear the four Pirate Bay founders were sentenced to a year in prison, and over $USD 3.5 million in fines, not sure after that. But good thing it’s still up and running healthy.
Mininova has been a steady performer with more than 4 billion torrents being downloaded this year already. Mininova originally came into existence after the end of SuprNova. Mininova is arguably the second best torrent site on the web right now. The torrents are very well organized and pretty good policy governs it and I believe by which it is no where to go in the long run..
They call them-self the most advanced BitTorrent search engine and by no means with cross-referenced trackers statistics for all torrents indexed updated to the hour, this is the best P2P files search engine I have seen, Isohunt is good torrent search engine which sorts the results with maximum peers so users can quickly search and download their required files. They also added SSL encryption to the site like piratebay did last year, making it impossible for your ISP or the authorities to monitor users’ activities. So cheers to ISOhunt..
Torrentz.com, one of the oldest torrent sites I have seen, The site as a “verified torrents” feature an thing inspired many other meta-search engines which to do the same. As a very unique feature I have seen of being able to search among files inside the torrents themselves. It also does not show results which have 0 seeds and it as over 1,500,000 monthly visitor from US alons as of the last month, pretty good figure..
TorrentFly is an advanced and fully customizable real-time search engine for bit-torrents. There servers scan the largest torrent websites on the internet and come up with the best results and TorrentFly is able to detect and remove fake/dead torrents. Accept the fact that TorrentFly is a legal website; so they do not host any copyrighted content, neither host or link directly to any .torrent files, as I said accept the fact this sites gonna run longer than any making it to the top 5. Don’t believe it as over 5 billion searches served so far.
Many people love Demonoid, me too, but there is some you need to hate just pulling it down the charts, it’s downtime and server problems. Do you remember 1 feature of Demonoid, mMembers are responsible for users that they invite, so if somebody invites someone who is leeching 24 hrs, then both will suffer the consequences. My point of view I love it, bcoz ensures a nice and healthy downloading experience among users. But Demonoid as serious threats of being offline following from the CRIA, so lets watch out..
It as over 2.5 million active torrents and from 5,000-25,000 torrents added daily, so you will find no shortage of what you’re looking for here. It is also a great source to find your required files due to its huge torrent database and has a firefox plugin for quick searching right from your browser window. I remember in December 2007 BTjunkie was forced to leave their ISP following a takedown notice from the Dutch anti-piracy outfit BREIN, but later from 2008 they had no Issues and with strong users to uphold it..
For BitTorrent sites that is usually a good thing. Traffic seems to be stable, although the site is not growing as fast as the other BitTorrent sites in this list. They do so TorrentPortal is like Google™ in that it only links to .torrent metafiles and takes a cache of such files. None of the data transferred by or stored on TorrentPortal servers is content linked to by .torrent files. But I see lot of excellent remarks on this site so making it to the Top 10 on my list…
Like many torrent sites lately, Sumo is powered by adult ads hehehe. But several readers have reported that they like the data visibility of the torrent results at Sumo. Sumotorrent is a fast growing torrent site with more then 2.5 million torrents and thousands more being added daily. My experience the pop-ups and redirects are annoying, and don’t make it one of the most convenient sites to browse though it’s rich features. So here it is @ number 9.
Last but not the least Torrentbox, again one of the best torrent sites around today, works superb if you have a P2P like Utorrent. Nothing big news about this site in the recent past after Torrentbox being sued by the MPAA in 2006, now has good database of users and steady progress on torrent updates..
Here are some other top mentions: torrentreactor.net, onlytorrents.com, Fenopy.com, seedpeer.com, torrents.to, which may have not made it to the top 10, but are very close and best of there kind..
So here are the top of the list, the opinions may vary as usual, as not all of our fingers are the same , but do leave a comment on what do you love about these or what you hate about these. Also this is not a promotion of any of these torrent sites, but rather as a information to users of what the best the INTERNET as to offer to you..
