    Hello,

    I have some problem about seeding my files. The problem that when i upload torrent file to torrent sites they show '0' seeders while i seed files, but downloaders can download my files. Also health of my files are low. May problem be in announcing torrents? (i announce every 30 minutes). There are also 30-40 downloads per day (without mininova and tpb). How can i optimize my downloads?

    I use Mandriva Linux system with ktorrent and i seed my files from my pc. My internet speed is 512 kb (upl/dwn).
    Thanks for attention.

    It shows 0 seeders because either:

    1. the site your uploading to doesnt get a tracker update straight away.
    2. Your ip your seeding from is banned from the tracker.

    What trackers are you using?

    As for getting more downloads well that all depends on the files that your sharing.

    It is not allowed to ad more than 10 tracker in mininova, may be on others also. I think my ip is not banned, because sites receives my uploaded torrent and i am yesterday started this business.
    Can i create torrent files for each torrent site with its own announce urls?
    I promote softs downloaded from warezbb: "hide ip", "rapidshare downloader". I think these softs are enough popular.

    When you create a torrent, put the openbitorrent tracker first. Some trackers do not suppnrt the scrape function which sites like mininova use to update the seeder/leecher stats.
