Some final thoughts on Torrents
If you've followed us in this guide from the beginning, you might be able to tell that we've expanded our own knowledge of the Bit Torrent universe alongside you. Everyday new sites are introduced, and everyday the files themselves seem to dictate the best place to go looking for them. Like a good (or bad) restaurant, many of the Torrent sites have just one chance, one initial impression, to win over the passing downloader.
Regardless, there's a lot to learn in searching for Torrents. If you missed some of our more important tips, here's a summary.
Watch your links
Sure, it helps every site if you click on sponsored links, or any links for that matter. But make sure you know the difference between files and links. That's pretty basic stuff, but some sites, like the official BitTorrent.com page, make it their business (literally) to confuse you. Often the sponsored links are clearer than the search results, so despite the temptation, make sure you know what you're clicking.
Google for Torrents
Don't merely type in the web address. By Googling the Torrent name, the description below the site – your final destination – often gives you reasonable alternatives. For example, a search for the popular "TorrentSpy" gave us a few helpful additional links, including the latest downloads and an advanced search for finding specific requests.
Tip! Try the home page suggestions
They wouldn't be there unless the Torrents thought they were worth the added attention. Many sites, especially Torrentz.com, make good use of the home page, and will place some of the most reliable stuff there. So, take a sec and scope out what's being handed to you. Like Mama said, you'll eat what's in front of you before eating dessert.
