They don't list ahashare.com, which definitely should be listed. Isohunt, which they do list, provides a more comprehensive and statistical list of their own. Can about.com be trusted with this kind of list?

Should also really list http://www.monova.org & http://www.epictorrents.com . Epictorrents is "Meta Search Torrent Blog. With over 500+ Torrents sites in one place+ news+ tips+ Top20 & more. Faster than all the rest" as noted on the site.

check out usniff.com
it searches all the top 10 or so and sorts by seeds, peers etc.

AT LEAST 25 (if not more) of those sites are completely useless

monova? bitorrent.com? fullDLs? meganova?

Do people actually use those sites?

Its seems there are more sites that do meta searches than sites that actually track torrents....I mean what good is a meta site if there are only 3-4 "good" public trackers (mininova, demonoid, tpb for alittle longer)

I mean why is there 30 meta sites to collect data from 3-4 main sites? Completely worthless

if someone was looking for a particular file perhaps rare, he or she might want to look @ sites that search many sites. If it is really worthless, how do you think google got to be good? Searches.... Your idea is flawed on calling these sites worthless...

Yes people actually use those sites, and believe it or not, they are well traffic'd or used by tons of people.

25 Great Pirate Bay Alternatives

The end of the Pirate Bay is nearing. Even if the deal with GGF doesn’t go through the current owners are likely to sell to one of the other interested parties. For many BitTorrent fans this means that they have to find an alternative. Luckily there are plenty of good ones out there.

Replacing The Pirate Bay is easier said then done. The tracker is currently responsible for approximately half of all public torrent transfers, which represents a significant percentage of global Internet traffic.

However, history has shown that BitTorrent users are an adaptive species that simply migrates to the next site when their home bases become uninhabitable.

While private trackers certainly have their place and will accommodate those lucky enough to get an invite, for this article we are interested in sites that are open to everyone, ranging from full Pirate Bay replacements to a do-it-yourself setup.

Thanks Overnet. Good posts. Adding &filetype=torrent also works on Clusty searches. Another good way to discover new torrent sites and trackers. I agree with CompMac's list of questionable sites, but agree with you that meta searches are nice if for no other reason than they help offload the search engine work from dedicated trackers.
