It’s really easy to argue which torrent site is the best since everyone has their own opinion. I will be talking about statistically rated torrent sites. When using such websites, try to protect yourself from hackers or malicious spy-ware. Use a great VPN to help with keeping your identity secure when file sharing.
The site has suffered from domain name changes but has been able to keep itself up. Kickass was founded in 2009 and since then has been slowly on the rise. What makes this website stand out a little more than the others is its great user interface and visual attraction. Kickass is also available in a total of 30 languages with millions of torrent downloads worldwide.
Alexa Rank Global = 140
ThePirateBay has had a few issues lately with it shutting down and recently coming back up. It is still widely known and one of the greatest of all time. The website was created by Fredrik Neij, Peter Sunde, and Gottfrid Svartholm in Sweden in 2003. The servers support SSL encryption in response to the new wiretapping law in Sweden.
Alexa Rank Global = 223
This site doesn’t host torrent magnet links itself. What it does is redirect users to other places on the web to find what they came looking for. It acts a middle man for torrents instead of allowing itself to be blamed for illegal user uploaded content. It runs using a powerful Metasearch engine created by flippy in 2003
Alexa Rank Global = 226
Extratorrent has been having great success in little time. It has risen all the way to 4th place on statistic charts. This fame has also caught the eye of the MPAA or the Motion Pictures of America. This recent event has caused them to switch their domain name from .com to .cc.
Alexa Rank Global = 358
This website is dedicated to TV torrent distribution and was founded in 2005. EZTV prides itself on its totally free user friendly website. It has quickly become a popular destination for torrent users all over the world. Torrenting movies and copy written TV shows is illegal, so do this at your own risk.
Alexa Rank USA = 6,003
The torrent sites I spoke about are statistically the top pages; however everyone has a personal preference when using such things. I hope you can find a home with one of these communities and help them grow if you haven’t already. Have fun, stay safe, and remember to keep your identity to yourself.
Have you ever wondered about what would be the most 5 popular torrent site of 2007? Guess what, here we have the list of torrents that made into top five position based on popularity this year.
Last year I compiled the list of popular torrents based on the few selection parameters. This year I have decided to put most top 5 list based on popularity.
The selections criteria are based on following parameter. The main factor of popularity was based on the traffic site receives (Alexa Ranking has been used to determine it). The second factor for popularity was number of sites that are linking in (Yahoo inbound links has been used to determine it). Also average number of peers has been taken into consideration for tracker sites that made into the list.
1.MiniNova.org [A ~ 60 | Y ~ 2.73M | P ~ 16M]
Mininova has been simply the best of torrent sites for year. Mininova has crossed its one million torrents listing and three billion torrents download this year. In addition to indexing, Mininova has its own tracker also. Mininova tops our popular torrent sites list this year as usual.
2. IsoHunt.com [A ~160 | Y ~ 2.83M | P ~ 15M]
IsoHunt is a popular torrent index and torrent search engine. IsoHunt is one among the few sites that withstood the legal battle on piracy even though it had to take away it own torrent tracking service TorrentBox from US. IsoHunt uses tracker cross-referencing that enables to track across identical trackers across other tracker sites.
3. ThePirateBay.org [A ~ 165 | Y ~ 2.83M | P ~ 8 M]
ThePirateBay is one of the world’s largest torrent trackers. ThePirateBay also gives clutter free interface for the user. TPB has its own tracker for its torrent index and has top listing of torrents etc. ThePirateBay also has released it own browser toolbar. This is one of my personal favorite all time.
4. TorrentZ.com [A ~ 197 | Y ~ 2.64M]
TorrentZ has a powerful and advanced search engine that enables you to search for the filenames rather than torrents. TorrentZ is only site that makes into list without featuring its own tracker. TorrentZ only indexes torrents available on another trackers. Another plus point is TorrentZ is ads free!
5.BTJunkie.org [A ~ 580 | Y ~ 1.67M | P ~ 3M]
BTJunkie is one among the largest and more advanced torrent search engines. BTJunkie crawler indexes both the public and private torrents, which put together gives a most comprehensive torrents listing. BTJunkie also know for indexing most number of torrents in total.
A – Alexa Rank
Y – Yahoo InLinks
P – Average Number of Peers
Also checkout the Alexa traffic for page views for these torrent sites for year of 2007.
This year special mention goes to Demonoid and TorrentSpy. Both of them were doing exceptionally well during last year. Demonoid remained to be a largest private tracker site. Demonoid was completely bought down couple of months back. In TorrentSpy case, they index is still active but the search feature has been disable for US visitors due to the piracy issue.Altogether this year was full of battles on piracy.

Let me ask you this question. Have you ever used torrents? Do you think they are against piracy?
My Favorite Top Five List of FireFox Add-ons that I use and you must have.
Here is a list of my favorite top five Firefox add-ons that I use very often. I just can’t imagine doing so many things on Internet that I do everyday without their assistance. I also been using couple of others which didn’t make into the list since this is list of only Top Five.
You can read more post on [tag]Firefox[/tag] which I had wrote about Firefox and other addons. If you don’t have Firefox yet; download it today.
FireFTP is my personal top favorite, which lets me manage my site. FireFTP is a free, secure, cross-platform FTP client that provides easy and intuitive access to FTP servers. This eliminates a piece of software for those of you who use a separate program for FTP. Along with transferring your files quickly and efficiently, FireFTP also includes more advanced features such as: directory comparison, syncing directories while navigating, SSL encryption, file hashing, and much more! Webmaster should try this.
StumbleUpon allows you to discover and share great Web content matched to your personal preferences. Whether it’s a website, video, picture, game, blog, or wiki, StumbleUpon helps you find interesting pages recommended by like-minded people with a single click of the Stumble! Button. This helps you find interesting Web pages you wouldn’t think to search for. Read my earlier post about StumbleUpon.
ScribeFire (previously Performancing) is a full-featured blog editor that sits right in your Firefox browser and lets you post to your blog easily. You can drag and drop formatted content, including images; from the page you are browsing and take notes as well as post to your blog. ScribeFire is compatible with most of the blog systems.
SearchStatus a neat little tool that provides you with some handy shortcuts for site information like PageRank, AlexaRank, backlinks, keyword density, link reports, whois, keyword/nofollow highlighting, backward/related links and a bunch of other search engine marketing related tools. I use the tool to track the pagerank and alexa rank of site that I’m browsing.
FoxyTunes places remote controls for the media player of your choice within Firefox so you can control your music without leaving your browser. The controls appear on the status bar or one of the toolbars, so no space is wasted. You can pause, forward/reverse, play, adjust the volume, and see what’s playing. There’s also an alarm clock and a sleep timer. This is a must-have extension for users who regularly listen to music while browsing the Web as it is to me 🙂
Thanks to those wonderful add-ons. This is my favorite 5, I do use others too but not that often. If you have some else in top 5 list, your comments are welcomed.
