Tech geeks always prefer to download stuff via Torrents. It has become a habit for most of the geeks. However, with the closure of Kickass Torrents and Torrentz, people were looking for an alternative. Here comes 1337x.to.
If you navigate to 1337x.to, you will view a fresh design in black and orange color. There are no popup and annoying advertisements. You will view a clear website in a new and sleek homepage design separated by various sections.
Moreover, on the top, you will view a featured slider with a list of trending movies to download. According to sources, you can expect the addition of an online community forum within the next few months.
We checked its working by searching for a movie. The site returned the results. However, when we clicked the Direct Download option, the portal redirected to another website. Moreover, we saw an advertisement stating that we have won a smartphone. When we proceed further, we were asked to pay via Airtel or Vodafone.
According to industry analysts, 1337x has rapidly gained popularity due to media coverage and will pose a threat to The Pirate Bay, which is currently the leading Torrent site.
1337x got lost users of Kickass Torrents
After the closure of Kickass Torrents, Torrentz, and Torrenthound, the traffic to sites such as The Pirate Bay, Extratorrent and Rarbg sharply increased. This is because users from the closed sites migrated to new Torrent portals for downloading. With the arrival of 1337x, they have one more Torrent download portal on their disposal.
1337x homepage blocked on Google search
The 1337x has been ranked as the top five most frequented torrent sites. However, its home page is blocked in Google search results since the previous design showcased specific torrent listings.
In a statement released to the press, the 1337x officials revealed that due to our old index being blocked by search engines, new users were having issues finding the website. Hence, they have developed a new index page that contains the only search, so we don’t get blocked by search engines in the future.
SEEING HOW COOL A RESPONSIVE LAYOUT COULD LOOK WE DECIDED TO MAKE A WHOLE NEW FRONT END. THAT LITERALLY TOOK MONTHS TO DEVELOP, AND WE CHANGED BACKEND CODE AS WELL, WHICH FIXED SEVERAL BUGS AND ISSUES THAT WERE IN THE OLD VERSION.
The new site has been freshly designed from scratch. Like other Torrent sites, the 1337x also includes the site name and a search box.
You can also expect the launch of forums. According to sources, the addition of a forum will enhance the community participation and bring in more new visitors and registrations. However, forum registration will be only optional.
