List of torrent sites that STILL work

Typically, the monthly traffic that a torrent site gets can be used to determine its popularity. This can imply the size of the library and its community of seeders and leechers. Although these metrics are important, there are many more angles we should look into including library size, library type, ad intrusion, mirror torrent sites, year established, community size, bans, and content format.

If you are in hurry, you can quickly get short answer and site availability information from our LIVE document that updates every 3 minutes:

Metrics definitions

Popularity among certain regions – We use analytics software like Similarweb and ahref to determine which country is the most avid user of a particular torrenting website.

Banned in the following countries – Some countries have restricted access to certain torrent sites.

Library size – The number of libraries on the torrent sites, sites with huge libraries, and diverse categories tends to be more valuable for the end-user.

Library type – The type of files that tend to be most prominent for a particular site. For instance, popular sites like The Pirate Bay or RARBG have massive libraries housing torrents from all categories. Some sites house contents from specific categories such as eBooks, or movies only.

Ad Intrusion – Pop-ups can be a nuisance when using torrent sites. If you have to go through a myriad of ads just to access a file, it’s time to move and find top torrent sites that don’t do that. Lucky for you, we have over 17 different options for you to choose from.

Year established – the year a torrent site was established. This can be used as a way to gauge the site’s reliability. The more resilient the site, the more trustworthy they tend to be. For instance, sites that have been up for five to ten years or more can be considered slightly more secure.

Content format – this includes some of the most popular content that the torrent sites are featuring on their page.

Best torrenting sites in 2020

1. The Pirate Bay

the-pirate-bay-torrent-site
https://thepiratebay.org/

TBP founded in 2003 in Sweden by Piratbyrån. Pirate Bay is one of the most popular torrent sites and is available in more than 30 languages.

However, if we tally the number of users using its other mirror sites, it is estimated to be around 20-60 million users monthly. It is loaded with millions of files from almost all categories. The large community ensures that there is at least one seeder on almost all its torrents despite the age of the file.

The Pirate Bay also has a very clean user interface and other helpful features such as tags to show whether torrents come from trusted sites and which ones could pose a security risk. Another huge advantage is the absence of ad intrusion and other pop-ups that click themselves.

Torrent – FAQ

How to use torrent sites?

If you are using torrents for the first time, it is important to understand the definition:

A torrent can be described as a small file that contains important meta-data about the file that you are attempting to access.

All torrent sites utilize special software known as clients.

Torrent client can read meta-data and pair your device with other users that already have the file that you are trying to access.

Basically, you download the file from another user. As such, torrenting is a form of data sharing that entails sharing files with other devices/computers.

If you want to use torrents, you will first have to find a reliable client that contains all the content or category that you’re looking for. The two most popular and highly reliable clients are uTorrent and qBittorrent by BitTorrent. Once you have the client of your choice installed, you can choose your favorite torrent site from the list above. You can search for any file and click the magnetic link of the torrent you want, the torrent file will automatically open the client to reveal the types of files that you are downloading.

Are torrents illegal?

Depending on the different laws of your country, you can be fined if you are found downloading copyrighted files. Some countries have banned torrenting websites, but not all. Torrents aren’t illegal in most of countries if you don’t download copyrighted material.

How to torrent safely?

In addition to using a VPN, which protects your IP address, it is important to know how to identify and avoid fake download links.

While using torrent sites, there is a high probability of finding fake download links. These links are used by hackers to carry out various types of cyber-attacks including phishing attacks. These links can also be loaded with malware and viruses. To reduce the cases of these attacks, you should try to stay aware and away from huge buttons and other pop-up ads and stick to valid torrent sites. Another way to be safe is to pay attention to

  • File data – Size, filename extension, seeders/leechers count, rating
  • Reviews Read the reviews under torrent sites files, if there seem to be legit negative comments, be cautious
  • General info Use your common sense. If something seems off, then it probably is.
