Top 5 Popular Torrent Sites of 2007

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 The ultimate BitTorrent source!

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 - World's largest BitTorrent and P2P search engine

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.

ThePirateBay - Download music, movies, games, software! The Pirate Bay - The worlds largest BitTorrent tracker

ThePirateBay is one of the worldÒ€ℒs 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 - Torrent's search engine

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!

  1. I use mininova, but for some movies and songs, i prefer dctorrent. You get links very early, just about in a day or two you get the torrent. to get dctorrent membership, you need to donate some amount (10$) and follow some of their rules, But still, i find it as the best site for torrent. For some softwares, yes, mininova is the best i ever came across.

  2. Vaibhav, thank you for the information of dctorrent. They seem to have huge resource for desi movies and song.

    Nirmal, Do you avoid torrents because of you think they are again piracy? or you prefer direct P2P?

    Brown Baron, Actually you missed the best one on the list. Torretz is completely ads free! and you’re always welcome πŸ™‚

    dEEPAK, Of course demoid was a great site but no longer exists:( BTJunkie has become popular bit lately.

  4. Madhur Kapoor, You’re lucky enough to use TorrentSpy there. It is been baned here in US.

    Ram, That might be a rude move by Frech goverment. But they might didn’t have another choice to stop piracy.

    Techblissonline, At times P2P comes in handy!

    rahul, True! the best they have in India is only by BSNL i guess!

  5. Hey Benedict! I’m back! Remember me? πŸ˜€
    I may have visited some of those other torrent sites, but the only logo I recognize, since I’m not big on torrents, is Pirate Bay. πŸ˜› Which ones do you recommend?

  6. Grace– Glad to see you back and have you here πŸ™‚ I’m also having a hard time refreshing my memory after a vacation πŸ˜›

    Yes, my personal take would be PirateBay!!

  7. Benedicte

    There is also a new kid on the block called Youtorrent.com. There is a lot of good coverage on the web about this service.

  8. Grace – You didn’t mention about what was the new release you working on ?

    Zia – Thank you for letting me know about it.

    David Airey – You’re welcome David and ty for stopping by!

  9. I preferred demonoid to the other trackers.. But now I go with Torrentleech or Isohunt for private and public torrents respectively.

    Nice list Ben!

    you’re interested send me an email.

    Best regards,

  11. The PirateBay said:
    were going to do a video streaming site. Its true. Its in the works being done right now and as usual we put a bit of Pirate Bay mentality behind every project we do.

  12. Thanks for compiling the popular sites. BTW do you have any idea on BitTorrent Software? I just wanna know whether the uploading speed effects the downloading part? Thanks in Advance..
