What are the best torrent website torrent sites at the start of 2020? As we maintain a long-standing tradition, we see that YTS has taken over the head from The Pirate Bay. After some turbulent years, the list of torrent sites has continued fairly intact, although there are some movers and shakers
While streaming is all the rage now, torrent sites still remain popular.
The Pirate Bay has long been the acknowledged leader in terms of traffic, but if we look at the most hit domains at the start of this year, it’s now exceeded by YTS and 1337x.
TPB’s dip can be connected to the frequent downtime and connectivity issues over the past months. It remains the go-to torrent site for many when it’s accessible, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the site regains the lead in the coming months.
This year’s list includes one stranger. TorrentDownloads is back after a year of absenteeism. The site takes the place of iDope which disappeared from the picture last year.
We traditionally restrict our overview to typical torrent sites that are targeted primarily at an English or international audience. This means that RuTracker, Dytt8, EliteTorrent, and Torrent9 aren’t covered even though they would pass in terms of traffic.
Below is the full listing of the ten most-visited torrent sites at the start of the new year. The list is based on different traffic reports and we display the Alexa rank for each. In addition, we include last year’s ranking.
