    EDIT: Nevermind, thought you meant for personal use, not monetization.

    rarbg works the best for me, but that's a cool list

    to find good trackers visit a torrent site and pick out a few good torrents with tons of seeds, save the torrent files and then go here:
    HTML:

    load the torrent up and look at which trackers are alive vs. which are dead. This will give you a good idea which trackers are most reliable

    I prefer to run my own tracker. This has the added advantage of spoofing the number of peers easily.

    But in that case it will also be harder for you to get traffic, right?

    No, it makes the torrent look more popular than it really is.
    It's the crowd effect. People are attracted to torrents with lots of peers.

    Care to elaborate on how you spoof/create your own tracker, i always thought we needed to use specific trackers for each website (they usually mention them), or does yours behave like a proxy to eventually connect to those approved by the websites ?

    There is lots of opensource tracker projects on the web. Best ones are written in C or C++. You need to compile the source code into binary of course. Trackers written in PHP are about too, easy to program but less robust.

    You need to know about servers, Linux, programming etc to be able to do it though.
