    Does anybody want to take a second to explain to me how in the hell seeding works with torrents?? Ive looked up on it so much but it sounds so confusing the way people explain it...I feel like everyones answer I have read was some Computer Science major and didnt take into account not everyone understands all the confusing terms they use.

    The more seeds you have the faster torrent will download, that's basically it.

    If you want to upload torrents, it will be best to best to get a seedbox.

    If you have no idea about seedboxes, you can get a ready-to-go seedbox. Here's a few I recommend (in order of preference)

    https://whatbox.ca/
    http://feralhosting.com/
    https://www.seedboxes.cc/

    Or if you want to, you can go straight to the DC where they all resell from and get a dedicated server for 10 Euro's a month:

    Asking for rep will further lower your rep.

    Also take a look at www.seedhost.eu
    You need to know the bittorrent protocol. Its based on this : If you give me Then I will give you. Some experianced uploaders download their own torrents from another pc or seedbox to about 99% then limit their download speed to 1kb/s or even lower so they constantly download. This makes other people seed seed and seed again while our guy downloads with 1kb/s. So when someone sees his torrent in some tracker for ex. TBP they are like "lol 1 leech and 50 seed there should be room for me" and there IS. This is a simple little strategy to "rank" your torrent that works everytime and its untraceble.
