Meganova

Another torrent site of huge size that focuses on indexing millions and millions of torrent files around the world, digging up the data that user requests by entering keywords in the search tab. One of the older ones, it may be totally unrecognizable for those who started using torrents frequently not a long time ago.

I stopped using most of these sites years ago.

Demonoid usually covers all my needs.

2

BitTorrent.com

It is not a standard database of torrents, but more than a collection of everything the service has to offer. You can browse the latest hot stuff being streamed, blog and community sub-pages and the ability to download the torrent client itself. A well-rounded front page of such a useful tool.

I agree with computer joe. Besides the fact that these lists are irrelevant because of such a high number of unseeded torrents, Demonoid is my preferred site because of its strict policy on fake or infected torrents. It is also much bigger than some of the "top 10" sites. Two-thirds of the time when you download a torrent from any of those sites you will find a txt file attached telling you that it is tracked by Demonoid.

Bushtorrent & Torrentreactor

The grandparents of torrent movement, these torrent sites are experiencing a bit of a stagnation period with TorrentReactor being blocked in a big number of countries and the majority of users switching to other services. These two are definitely the sites to drop a tear of nostalgia for the older generation of internet.

Has anyone ever used BTJunkie? I tried after reading this article, and will not try again. Rampand redirects and general spam. This makes me think that this article may be less than legit.

isoHunt

A target of multiple copyright scandals, isoHunt is still among the best torrent sites, acting as a top search engine for torrent files and conducting the process of sharing more than 14 petabytes of data in 2012. The owner had to close the site in 2013 along with paying $110 million in compensation but reopened the service days later.

TPB has done so much for the torrent community, it is a shame to not seem them in the top several.

Less important than number of torrents would be average number of seeders per torrent, wouldn't it?

5

Torrentz

A Finnish torrent site that primarily functions as a search engine for the torrent files that meet your requirements of some sort. Type some keywords and get the list of results, simple as that. It is now one of the most popular sites that operate with torrents worldwide due to the simplicity and effectiveness.

scam indeed. until monday, i did know know btjunkie existed. that's when both this blog post and a link to btjunkie made del.icio.us/popular and digg. moreover the site is terrible. it seems to me that for torrent needs, your best bet is finding specialized sites like dimeadozen or myspleen. the community is far more important than the number of torrents because it ensures high quality and a large number of seeds. lately, the social bookmarking experiment seems inclined to fall for stuff like this (browzer anyone). it get's worse when a blog like lifehacker falls for it too. also, popurl is an aggregator. how can something be via it?

Mininova

Launching in 2005, it grew so fast that soon the author’s bandwidth could not handle all the traffic as a huge number of torrents was placed and downloaded. It was quick to reach the milestone of 5 billion file downloads but faced a lawsuit from Dutch authorities in 2008. The shutdown followed 9 years later on April 4th, 2017.

Wow... I normally used Mininova. Guess that shows how torrent-savvy I am... :-)

7

The Pirate Bay

The Pirate Bay leads the list of best torrent sites according to millions of the users around the globe. Millions of files, intuitive search, and ranking of the data, everything you need from a good torrent site. It was targeted multiple times by the authorities but the service is safe and sound as you read this.

I personally torrenting takes too long

8

Torrent Portal

Back in 2000s, it was one of the best torrent sites, having 15 hundred new torrents added daily and indexing hundreds of thousands of results each time a user was trying to find something. The search is filled with options and allows to narrow down the required index zone.

Would someone mind sending a Demonoid invite to my? :)

9

TorrentSpy

Another example of best torrent sites that fell under the attacks of copyright lawsuits. Innovative design, useful and intuitive features and a considerable size of indexing were the reasons behind TorrentSpy’s ascending to the top. Earned the title of the most popular torrent site of 2006, despite losing in some categories to other on the market.

Demonoid is by far the best tracker I've ever used, at least as one with semi-open registration (During weekends, the registration is open, however during the week you need an invite.) Also, if you're looking for TV shows, you'll find a home at myseasonpass.com. It looks at many trackers, and sends you a feed (RSS) of updates and added episodes to the shows you choose.

Demonoid is a fantastic tracker, in my experience.

BTJunkie

A torrent search engine that operates on the base of the web crawler, the same thing that Google uses. This allows the site to check through millions of files in a split of a second. It checks the cookies instead of registering so your download history is visible and therefore you can rate the torrents.

I really like RankTopTen. I Check it daily. A big problem that I have is that sometimes I just don't understand what you are talking about! A serious suggestion would be to either explain /or/ give a link to an explanation sometimes. I really have no idea what "Torrents" is (or should that be "are"?) supposed to be.
