YouTorrent: Torrent Meta Search Engine

Although the name is clearly meant to recall that of ubiquitous video portal YouTube, YouTorrent upon first reading sounded more like an accusation than anything else: You Torrent. Although some of us hesitate to admit it, we do torrent.

Yes I know there aremanylegitimatereasons for doing so, but that’s not always the reason for hitting up sites like The Pirate Bay.

Unfortunately, upon visiting many of these torrent sites, you’re bombarded with ads – most of an unseemly nature, making you feel like maybe you are doing something naughty after all. In comparison, what’s notable about YouTorrent’s site is how uncluttered it is. In fact, there are no ads to be found anywhere. On the homepage, you simply see an entry box, a search button, and a list of popular searches below. The results pages are also ad-free. Since the site is brand-new, something tells me that this won’t last; still, it’s nice to enjoy it while you can.

When you begin a search on YouTorrent, you’ll see the engine work in real time to display the results. The date, size, seeds, peers, and engine are listed for each torrent. By default the results are ordered by popularity (seeds and peers) , but you can quickly sort results by any of the other options just by clicking on the column header.

YouTorrent searches all the top torrent engines, including Mininova, The Pirate Bay, isoHunt, SumoTorrent, myBittorrent, Monova, Vuze, BitTorrent, LegitTorrents, SeedPeer, and BTjunkie. On the results page, you’ll see a green check next to the ones where torrents were found. Underneath the listed engines, a related searches section can help guide you by providing similar queries to try.

Since the site has just launched, you can expect to see new features in the future like Boolean searches, advanced search, more engine selections, and a Firefox plugin (can’t wait for this!), and maybe they will even finish their FAQ.

YouTorrent’s design and clean user-interface makes this site one of the best torrent search sites I’ve seen. It’s definitely worth checking out…just remember to buy the DVD later.
