Best Torrent Search Engines Right now
A dramatic year
It has proved to be a dramatic year for torrent search engines. In the beginning of 2016, the most popular torrent search engine in the world, Kickass Torrents was surpassing the famous Pirate Bay. It has had to battle a slew of censorship efforts recently and has burned through a host of different domain names. Now, at the end of 2016, Kickass Torrents is down, while the Pirate Bay lives on.
The internet today remains a perilous environment for torrent search engines.
The eternally relevant and iconic pirate bay is still one of the best torrent sites going.
It started life way back in 2003 by a Swedish think tank supposedly concerned with freedom of information.
It wasn’t online for a short period of time at the beginning of 2015, but has since bounced back, with a whole load of domain names available to access the site. Users in the UK will have to log on to the pirate bay using TOR.
The Pirate Bay is currently flourishing as the number one torrent search site and public tracker out there. However it faces continual threats to its existence. Watch this space Pirate bay users.
This torrent search engine continues to gain a greater following. It is now one of the most active communities and home to the ever popular ETRG and ETTV release groups.
Torrentz has been on the scene for many years now. It differs from the sites in this list in that it doesn’t host any files or magnetic links itself, but redirects you to places on the web where you can get the torrent you are after. It utilises several domain names, with the .eu domain name proving most popular. This is a great platform for your torrent search.
This torrent search engine takes its name from the old school hacker slang “leet”. This site has always had a community driven feel, however in recent times moderators and admins have largely abandoned the website due to concerns about security. It will be interesting to see if 1337x can maintain a presence in the coming years.
This torrent search provider started out as a Bulgarian concern and is one of the newest sites on this list. RARBG continues to attract more visitors in as time goes on. Unfortunately last year the site was blocked by UK internet services providers, dealing another blow to people from the British Isles that want to do a torrent search.
The first version of EZTV was shut down in early 2016 due to a hostile takeover. The site was primarily a torrent search spot for the EZTV torrent group that made TV torrents. However, since then the site now operates under new ownership and releases their own torrents.
To add some drama, several of the large torrent sites have banned new EZTV torrents from their own sites in an act of solidarity with the original owners of the site.
Despite all this EZTV still remains a popular torrent site and a decent place for a torrent search.
This particular tracker has been on the go for several years now. It provides a no-nonsense index of torrents to millions of unique users every month. It is another recommended site for a torrent search.
Lets make this clear – YTS.AG has nothing in common with the original YIFY group or the original YTS. This new site aims to take the place of these popular predecessors.
As with the “new” EZTV, this site is receiving a bit of a frosty reception within the torrenting community, with many of the large torrenting sites not allowing the group the use of the YTS or YIFY “brands” on their site.
The old ISO hunt was one of the greatest torrent sites out there. Unfortunately it was shut down in 2013 by the MPAA. Like many other torrent search engines however, it had a resurrection and was relaunched as isohunt.to. This site is not directly linked to the old one, however it does have a decent list of active torrents under different categories.
Recently, Lime Torrents has been gaining ground in the community due to a large database of quality torrent files. Its possible to get some decent quality movies, games and software on here. Torrents are also nicely categorized under TV Shows, Applications, Anime, Movies, Music etc. Worth checking out.
Monova is frequently referred to by the torrent search engine Torrentz.eu because it is a quality tracker. There are a range of decent quality torrent files available here with a good seed to leech ratio. Monova has a good and clean front page with a search bar to allow you to find your desired torrent more easily. Torrents are categorized under Audio, Games, Books, Photos, Videos and other.
This torrent search site is rather new, but quite powerful. You can easily navigate through over 3 million indexed torrents.
There are so many torrent sites out there right now. Right here you have some of the most trusted and visited torrent sites on the scene at the minute.
However it is becoming an increasingly perilous environment for the large torrent trackers . We have witnessed the loss of Kickass Torrents and TorrentHound this year. These where in the top ten most visited torrent search sites.
Users are finding they are having to branch out from their usual sites to keep abreast of these developments. Meanwhile users in the UK are able to visit less and less of the torrent search sites with ISPs being forced to block access on legal grounds.
It will be interesting to see where 2017 will lead us with torrent search sites. In the mean time, we hope you can get your fix from these trusted links.
