Top 20 Torrent Sites of 2007

As of June 28, 2007, the most popular Bit Torrent search engine sites are listed below.
  1. Torrentspy.com offers over 420,000 torrents in its database, the largest torrent index that is readily available to the public. Enjoy it while you can.

  2. Torrentscan.com (a "meta-search" engine, which is a search engine that searches other search engines)

  3. Snarf It! (born from previous Suprnova influences)

  4. Torrentmatrix.com

  5. Mininova.org has 190,000 torrents indexed as of April, 2007. Mininova is the successor to Suprnova, one of the original big torrent databases of the Web.

  6. Demonoid (Demonoid is also a major tracker database that supports thousands of swarms around the globe. Even better, the Demonoid community polices itself by monitoring how much each member actually shares files. ("Leeches" are not tolerated at Demonoid). Note: because new memberships at Demonoid are scarce, you will need to be patient and committed if you wish to join.)

  7. Torrentreactor.to (Torrentreactor has made a comeback from a hijacking and an uncooperative hosting service. They have moved to a different server setup and a Tonga country domain outside the USA. Read the details on their home page.)

  8. Torrentportal.com

  9. BTjunkie

  10. TorrentTyphoon.com (a unique bittorrent meta-search engine that searches several of the most popular sites. Unfortunately, it does not do a good job categorizing the torrent files themselves)

  11. Torrentbox.com FYI: like Isohunt, Torrentbox is being sued by the MPAA as of February 28, 2006. The days for this fine search engine may be numbered.

  12. Isohunt.com

  13. The Pirate Bay (Pirate Bay, by readership size, is the most popular torrent search site today. Pirate Bay has an immense database of 360,000 torrents, the third largest database after Isohunt and Torrentspy.)
    (May 31, 2006: The Pirate Bay has been shut down by Swedish authorities. Details are available on the Pirate Bay home page.)
    (June 2006: The Pirate Bay has restarted operations, now that the police have duplicated the PB hard drives for forensic purposes. Enjoy this database while it is still around, folks!)

  14. Scrapetorrent.com is another torrent meta-search engine that is gaining popularity.

  15. ByTorrents Meta Search

  16. Torrentz.com (special thanks to reader, Jonathan R., for this link)

  17. Torrents.to

  18. LegalTorrents.com(As the name implies, this is a database of public-domain content. Thanks to Anand S. for this URL.)
