Posting a list of the world’s most-visited torrent sites has been a long-standing tradition at TF, which we continue today. At the start of 2016 KickassTorrents is pulling in most traffic followed by The Pirate Bay. A lot of things have happened over the past year, with some torrent sites disappearing from the scene and others taking their place.

Below is the full list of the top 10 most-visited torrent sites at the start of the new year. The list is based on various traffic reports and we display the Alexa rank for each. In addition, we include last year’s ranking for each of the 10 sites.


Most Popular Torrent Sites



1. KickassTorrents

(update July 2016: KAT is down)
KickassTorrents was founded in 2009 and surpassed The Pirate Bay in traffic last year. Battling various censorship efforts the site has burned through a few different domain names over the years. Most recently it switched to a Costa Rican .cr domain after it lost its Somalian .so address.
Alexa Rank: 85 / Last year #1

2. The Pirate Bay


The Pirate Bay is one of the main piracy icons. The torrent site wasn’t online at the beginning of 2015 and had to deal with a staff revolt. However, it quickly regained millions of users after a successful comeback operating from a hydra of domain names until last week.
Alexa Rank: NA / Compete Rank: NA / Last year #4


3. ExtraTorrent


ExtraTorrent continues to gain more traffic and has become one of the most active torrent communities. The site is also the home of the popular ETTV and ETRG release groups.
Alexa Rank: 342 / Last year #3

4. Torrentz


(Update August 2016: Torrentz has shut down)
Torrentz has been the leading BitTorrent meta-search engine for many years. Unlike the other sites featured in the list Torrentz does not host any torrent files or magnet links, but redirects visitors to other places on the web. The site uses several domain names with .eu being the most popular.
Alexa Rank: 351 / Last year #2


5. RARBG


RARBG, which started out as a Bulgarian tracker, was last year’s newcomer and continues to rake in more visitors. The site was blocked by UK ISPs last year, which put it on par with most other sites in the top 10.
Alexa Rank: 1,101 / Last year #7


6. 1337x


1337x has traditionally been a community driven torrent site but several weeks ago most of the admins and moderators abandoned ship over security concerns. The coming year it will become clear whether 1337x can keep its popular status.
Alexa Rank: 1,249 / Last year #9


7. EZTV.ag



TV-torrent distribution group EZTV shut down earlier this year after a hostile takeover. The site continued to operate under new ownership and releases its own torrents now. In solidarity with the original owners several large torrent sites have banned these ‘new’ releases from their sites.
Alexa Rank: 1,373 / Last year #NA


8. TorrentHound

TorrentHound has been around since the last decade but is a newcomer in the top 10. It has also been on the radar of copyright holders this year. The torrent site is blocked in several countries and was reported as a piracy haven to the U.S. government, alongside many other sites in this list.
Alexa Rank: 2,239 / Last year #NA


9. YTS.ag


YTS.ag has nothing to do with the original YTS or YIFY group, but aims to take its place. As with the new EZTV, several large torrent sites are not allowing the group to use the YIFY or YTS brands on their sites.
Alexa Rank: 740 / Compete Rank: 4,271 / Last year #NA


10. TorrentDownloads



TorrentDownloads has been around for several years. The torrent site regained a spot in the top 10 this year after it was featured for the last time in 2011. It’s a no-nonsense index that provides torrents to millions of users each month.
Alexa Rank: 2,969 / Last year #NA

Disclaimer: Yes, we know that Alexa isn’t perfect and that Compete has plenty of flaws, but when combined both do a pretty good job at comparing sites that operate in a similar niche.
