Ten Most Used BitTorrent Sites:
I was rather surprised with these results, BTJunkie has nearly double the amount of torrents as the next leading competitor. The reason for such the dramatic increase is that they index both private and public trackers. Keep in mind that this benchmark is not very reliable because these sites all have different removal policies, making the quality of these numbers range.
This is the best benchmark for figuring out which site is doing the best job. It is the most important number because no matter what policies the site may have for keeping dead torrents around it is a tell tail sign of how much is really incoming. At first I thought BTJunkie's numbers must be fake, but I assure you it is real! I tested the number posted with the number in the actual directory for the day and they matched for a week straight!
This is an overall rating based on site & user features. TorrentSpy has done a great job of "wikifing" their site, leaving much of the work to it's users. TorrentSpy also has great torrent upload management. BTJunkie has a feature called Torrent Mail that will search the new torrents daily for any searches of your choice and e-mail you the results.
BTJunkie - Editors Choice
It's funny because BTJunkie was a site that I had never heard of before, barely made the top ten list, and it turned out to be the largest BitTorrent index. BTJunkie also indexes private trackers which tend to have faster, higher quality torrents. I spoke with the operator who claims their success is due to having an automated web crawler similar to Google, which captures torrents from thousands of web sites. The site also has an innovative feature where users can have BTJunkie search the new torrents daily and e-mail them the results. The site is fast with powerful search options and the layout is "windows" like. Overall this is my number one pick due to it's huge index of active torrents, hats off to BTJunkie!
This was one of the most fluent chess links and chess torrents years ago, actually is temporally closed maybe due to infliction in copy right . but I hopefully They re open this great site
