Mininova loses two thirds of its traffic after going legal

Traffic is down 66% in the week since Mininova deleted more than a million torrents and went legal.

btjunkie & isohunt should suffice for now.

Come on guys, keep up. Mininova was killed but before it died, it had a baby...!

Arggh, there be the wenches and rum me mateys!

Yi-Long3284d ago

...there's still 33% of traffic left for that site. The minute they went 'legal', I went elsewhere.

I never even used Mininova until the last few months, and even then it was just because I bookmarked EZTV there. Isohunt, Demonoid and PirateBay have always had what I want.

NewZealander3284d ago

ahashare is pretty good too, thats where i go now.

RIP Mininova, you were my sunshine after Suprnova.

Public trackers are sh*t anyways. Private ones are a lot better, well better speeds anyways cause people care.

100,000 sperm and you were the fastest?

Kakihara3284d ago

C'mon Sanzee, there's not a guy here who'd deny that your girlfriend is a lot of fun but you, I and Chris Hansen know damn well she's not legal.

I'm surprised they didn't lose more. The site is more or less useless now. Not that I don't appreciate all the hard work they put in, but I think it's time they moved on.

TapiocaMilkTea3284d ago

I think the 33% were people who spent 3 min looking for their TV shows and then realized it went legal and left for good........

RememberThe3573284d ago

I had no idea Mininova went legal. I'm actually really disappointed to hear it. I'm about to check out that that was mention above.

ButterToast3284d ago

yup thats what I did. the site is worthless now. It's too bad, mininova was my favorite torrent site.

neeharb3284d ago

Yup i too think the traffic will keep reducing unless they start another site in a region or country which do not have those laws..
