However since suprnova torrents was bought down by the RIAA, a very popular aggregator of torrents for p2p file sharing came down. Right now, you can download torrents using clients such as Kazaa, emule and Bit Tornado. However, these do not have a vast search base which is where a bittorrent search engine comes in. Again these search engines such as piratebay.org have limited amount of torrents for you to search. You might not have enough seeds on a file and you will end up with slow download speeds or an incomplete file. In this article I will tell you how you can use Google to search for torrents, get the best download speeds and find torrents with the most seeds

    The problem with most of torrent websites and specially the search engines are lots of ads,pop-ups,fake torrents etc.. I was looking for a torrent search engine that would give me more accurate results with no ads and fake stuff and guess what,my friend found this website http://tsearch.co.cc . Looks like it’s a search engine in a testing stage,but it works great.

    You add “filetype:torrent” to your Google search or you can use one of the Google CSE’s that people made to make it easyer for them.

    I personally like http://torrent.gertnutterts.nl because:
    *) The author wrote a statement why he made it
    *) Hardly any ads (unlike other sites)

    I just don’t get it why there’s only an English version :|

    Hej, thnx for the advices all :)

  • Jordz

    Very helpful tutorial.

    I don’t even have to bother with trackers just checkout this site if you want to download torrents faster. http://www.downloadtorrentsfaster.net/.

    Well, technically speaking you would be using torrent-search-bar.com to search through all the listed torrent trackers, and not Google itself. If you actually want to use Google you would search for *what you want* filetype:torrent . Although I don’t recommend doing that, this would actually utilize Google’s search powers and should theoretically find torrents from any open tracker that is listed on Google.

    Who needs something like this though? linuxtracker.org got everything we really want!
