Finding Torrents

If you are new to BitTorrent one of the first things you need to know is where to find .torrent files. These files describe the file or files to be downloaded, including the size, filenames, number of peers and seeds, and locations. There are many standalone torrent hosts such as Mininova, as well as cross site search engines such as isoHunt and specialized sites like tvtorrent.

Many torrent hosting sites also produce RSS feeds, so you can be notified of new files being seeded. My Google Sidebar shows me new files as the .torrent files are posted to Mininova, which is my favorite torrent site.
