Right after the prominent?Kickass Torrents (KAT) domains got impounded, Google searches specific to torrent alternatives have increased as expected. Here, in this post, The Bitbag has listed down the top 5 torrent sites (alternatives) of 2016 based on the popularity and rankings.
Readers should however note that torrent sites like the ones given below usually change domains (or run multiple domains) as and when authorities take them down. To top it off, the rankings of websites derived from the very popular?Similar Web also change eventually based on the traffic, bounce rate and content, among others.
Before we list down the top 5 torrent sites of 2016, KAT fans should note that Kickass Torrents mirrors are already available online. For instance, isoHunt is running a KAT clone dubbed ?KickassTorrents.website.? Given the law enforcement?s interest in KAT, the?mirrors or proxies will eventually be clamped down.
1. Torrentz.eu: (Similar Web Rank ? 3)
The ranking of Torrentz says it all. This is one of the very reliable and popular torrent sites, frequented by regulars from many countries across the globe. This site is the ?Google of Torrents.?
Technically speaking, it is the BitTorrent meta-search engine. And this site doesn?t host any files. Instead, it routes people to various sites by listing them all the available options for a particular search query.
2. Rarbg.to: (Similar Web Rank ? 6)
RARBG is a new site. However, the consistency and popular picks made this website a poster boy among the other torrent sites.
3. Extratorrent.cc: (Similar Web Rank ? 7)
This is one of the go-to websites for torrent downloads. It has strong presence in the U.S., Pakistan, India, Australia and Canada.
4. Torrentdownloads.me: (Similar Web Rank ? 43)
TorrentDownloads is one of the old and prominent websites among the others. This clean site hosts truckload of movies, TV shows and music. Gaming fans are also covered as it offers PC/PS2/PSP/Wii/Xbox game torrents.
5. Thepiratebay.se: (Similar Web Rank ? 44)
The Pirate Bay held the?numero uno position at some point among the file sharing websites. As we know, it was taken down. However, it is back with a different domain and enjoys the same popularity as before, if not more.
Apart from the top 5 torrent sites mentioned above, here are some of the popular sites with equally good traffic: Torrenthound.com, Isohunt.to and 1337x.to
