5 Best Torrent Search Engines + Google Trick for Torrent Search!

Update: Now we have few more nice torrent search engines. At the end of this post!

There are many sites which host torrent on Internet but most of them are spam sites or porn sites. So finding a torrent is hard and Google is not just enough to do this job. So here comes the list of search engines specially meant for searching torrents! At the end I will be sharing a trick to use Google for searching torrents!

torrentz Torrentz: This is my favorite. Simple and fast. Key feature is same torrent from different sources is not duplicated while showing results. So you get comprehensive search results. After selecting a torrent from results you can see user comments, various trackers, mirror links, related torrents & most important authenticity of that torrent.

It also have a dedicated movies & TV shows section. All torrent in these sections are verified. Additionally you can limit your searches to these sections. There is RSS feed option for these sections sections as well as for all search queries. So feed addicts will find torrentz most interesting!

ScrapeTorent ScrapeTorent: This also search across various torrent indexes. Key features are option to limit searches to particular category, option to filter dead-torrents & duplicates from results. They also have a forum if you need help. I come to know about this recently via Anil, a geek & fellow blogger.

pizzatorrent PizzaTorrent: I use this when torrentz fails. It shows real-time results from 15 best torrent hosts. It doesn’t club similar torrents in a single group so you may notice much higher number of results. But it does grouping by categories which saves you from downloading wrong torrent! However it produces too many useless results for multiword queries.

YouTorrentYouTorrent: It also shows real-time torrent results. By default it gathers results from 10 different torrent hosts. You can add/remove various torrent hosts for fine grained results. in left sidebar it shows related searches as well as top searches. This also produces few extra result which user may find useless. I think by default it looks search keywords in torrent description. This may be useful sometime but most of the time user is interested in torrent names only to get accurate search results.


GoogleGoogle: Yep Google can be used smartly to search anything on the Web! Just add filetype:torrent as it is to your search query and you will get results restricted to torrents. I use this only when all above fails. Unfortunately due to high amount of spam in torrent world you will be disappointed most of the times!

There are many torrent search engines on net so it may happen I am missing your favorite one. Anyway let us know which one you like?

Update: Following is list of torrent search engine picked up from comments below…

BTJunkie Logo BTJunkie – They have database of 1.5 million torrents which they claimed to be largest. Better search options and ability to browse torrent is plus point. [Added by Juan‘s comment]

Toorgle Logo Toorgle – Power of Google Search used across 250+ torrent websites. Have index of more than 7 million torrents. A nice example of Googles custom search! :-)  [Added by Chris’s comment]

Torrent Finder Logo Torrent-Finder – Optionwise this beats all other torrent search site. Really huge database, with fine-grain control over what you want to include in search! Results can be browse in tabs. [Added by Jack’s comment]

  • Rocki

    I would suggest http://www.multitorrent.org
    a very nice meta search engine

    • http://www.devilsworkshop.org Rahul Bansal

      Its nice but I see it least inefficient.
      It doesn’t combine results from other sites instead you have to check them one by one.
      Anyway its different so some people may like it… :-)

      • nazim

        i use to love torrentz.com but believe me i have seen a huge difference in torrentz site 15 days ago it was working very fine butt believe me now it wont they have corrupted there data you have to search the exect wording to get acual file even if you add coma aur full stop etc it will not reflect unless you short it up to one to two word so recently i am working on picktorrent and btjunkie

  • Sooraj Jayaram

    Well i guess mininova.org is the best !! u get good seeded torrents from there, it never disappointed me, anywayz ‘l give a try to these !!

    • http://www.devilsworkshop.org Rahul Bansal

      Mininova is my favorite too but I personally use torrentz as it covers mininova as well as other reliable sources. Moreover it always show mininova at top in the results.

      • Cap

        Mininova sucks now… They changed religion or something… I used to love them but they’re beat now.

      • shimmy

        how to down load full version adobe 3.o audition!?

      • khayaal

        You can download it direct for 4shared.com
        Enter the words: Adobe 3.0 audition in the 4shared search window
        And you ll get ample results
        Choose to download the one which suits your need and appeals to your mind!

  • Ryan

    Thanks for the list. I like Rahul use torrentz.com.

    • http://www.devilsworkshop.org Rahul Bansal

      • Resh

        I also use torrentz.com to find torrents !! If this fails I try searching via google.

  • http://iamtrevorbrown.com CabooseEnfield

    Dont forget the all so useful thepiratebay.org

    • http://www.devilsworkshop.org Rahul Bansal

      Thanks for reminding buddy but most of above 5 already check thepiratebay and other top sites while searching torrents.
      So for example when you go to torrentz your search result will include mininova + piratebay + results from many other top torrent hosts… :-)

  • http://techdudes.blogspot.com Techdudes.blogspot

    But torrentz and many other includes all torrents from isohunt in their index so haven’t mentioned it!

    Sorry bro. I do not have desitorrent invitation. :-(
    Also I purposely omitted all invite only torrent sites.

  • http://gtxt.com.ar/ moviefan

    Mininova and Torrentz are excellent sites to search for torrents, but i usually get too many useless results.

    I also use http://flixi.org is clean and easy to use.

    Even I am looking for 1 :(

  • http://www.devilsworkshop.org Rahul Bansal

    I tried it and it seems very slow. Also interface is not impressive.

  • Steve Troilo

    Great post. Most of them I already use. I too if all else fails find google to be great if you know what sites to filter out. One note on torrent finder is that it consumes a heavy amount of browser power because it loads all the tabs at once instead of when clicked on. At first it was very convenient but not worth the bog if your on a machine with limited resources. Anyone got some suggestions for private sites? I spend most of my time at Demonoid and LOVE it, but would like to join a couple more. My ratio is always at least 2.5 or higher. Any invites would be greatly appreciated. A site that was dedicated to movie pre releases like TS’s would kick ars. And finally is Oink still around? I guess I can check myself.

  • preet kaler

  • http://www.torrentswave.com hollyWod

    i am a demonoid user since more than 4 years now..

    one thing i have found out is the number of trackers attached to a torrent..

    if you are talking about speedy downloads of torrents.. you should also mention the number of trackers coz it will give consistency any a higher speed rate if any particular torrent site is busy or down..

    i have used TorrentsLibrary or TorrentsWave as the easiest

    you should also the process of adding tracker to your download file and finding them over othr torrent site

  • cdke

    http://www.thegreekz.net , new torrent search engine!

  • Tomasz

    I must say that I love torrentz.com. If you want your results to be relevant you should consider writing up your own search queries and saving them: ie (movies rip -camrip -tsrip -ppvrip) will only bring bluray and dvd rips. (-) works as a variable removal (just like in google) – only thing that it’s missing now is an option to eliminate older dates. Does anyone know how to do that?

    • Tomasz

      Yes, I am replying to myself, in case somebody is looking for what I was looking. You can condition the search with dates on torrentz.eu by adding “added: Xd” where X is the number of days. So for example query string: “added: 4d movies 2011 -camrip -cam -ts -tsrip -telesync -ppv -ppvrip -tsrip -series -docu” would search for all 2011 movies added in the past 4 days that aren’t cam or telesync or pay-per-view or series and documentaries. Way to be number one torrentz.eu

  • Mike

    The “filetype:torrent” thing doesn’t work.
    I suggest using this search engine instead: http://tsearch.co.cc

    hey. I think torrentflux is pretty great. I didn’t read the whole forum, so it’s probably already been mentioned.

  • Mike

    Thanks for the list :)

    I’d like to recommend https://bitzone.eu – it’s a search engine for torrent files in the various torrage like caches and it’s pretty powerful. Indexing more than 10 Milions torrents, it’s probably one of the biggests search engine. I use it when I’m looking for something really obscure that I can’t find on the bay, and so far I love it.
