The main reason why most of the torrent users are always longing to be a part of a private tracker community is safety. Private torrent trackers have limited members and a stringent moderation process. Even with all the strict rules, users don’t back down from uploading content. They follow the rules and ensure that their uploads and suggestions won’t cause any issues. Hence, the torrents are of top quality and there’s no malware on the site, which makes downloading the content much safer. Today, we’re reviewing one particular site which is known for its reliable torrents. It’s called TurkTorrent.
What is TurkTorrent?
TurkTorrent is a private torrent community-based in Turkey. It’s one of the oldest private torrent tracker websites from that region. You’ll find tons of free indie content on this platform. TurkTorrent has a friendly community wherein, users are always helping new users settle in and are frequently using forums to pose questions and also to provide answers to users who are seeking them.
How to join TurkTorrent?
In order to join TurkTorrent, you’ll need to find a VIP member or an advanced user with a great reputation on the platform. Getting a membership is difficult if you don’t have connections within the community. However, this does not mean that you can’t join the community at all. Every year, there’s a particular period where TurkTorrent allows new members to join the community. Sure, the slots are not more than 50-100, but if you’re lucky, you can become a member without any favor.
History of TurkTorrent
TurkTorrent started its journey back in 2010. Since then it has faced numerous stumbling blocks but hasn’t given up. It has rebranded the platform several times. Prior to 2016, the website had an entirely different user-interface. However, right now, the UX is quite sleek and modern. Changes have been made, not just in terms of visual appeal but also in terms of content, and functionality.
Is TurkTorrent safe?
For a torrent site to be safe for browsing, it needs to have an SSL certificate, which TurkTorrent does have. By using tools such as SEOQuake and MOZ, you can easily check the credibility of a website by gauging Domain Score (DS) and Trust Score (TS). Based on my research, TurkTorrent has a domain score of 3 and a trust score of 33 which isn’t impressive. Sure, It’s not uncommon for torrent sites to have a DS less than 15 and a TS less than 40. However, given that the site was launched in 2010 and still hasn’t managed to surpass a DS of 5, is disappointing.
What should you expect from TurkTorrent?
Content Categories – On TurkTorrent, you’ll find free indie content from a wide range of categories.
Upload Page – Due to the stringent upload rules, not every user can upload content on the site. Even members/users who belong to the ‘Power’, ‘Gold’, ‘Super’, or ‘Best’ categories can’t upload content. If members on these levels want a specific torrent, they can make a request using the torrent page. As for those members who can upload the content, they need to ‘Add file’, ‘Add title’, ‘Add description’, ‘Thumbnail’, and even ‘IMDb’ rating for the content.
Interactive Forum – TurkTorrent has a well-designed forum which appears quite distinctive. Thanks to the red, blue, and gray colors, the forum looks visually appealing. The only problem with this section is that it’s in Turkish and thus if you aren’t well-versed with the language, you might not understand anything. Some of the top threads on the forum have more than 4,000 posts and over 30,000 messages. After translating certain words, I found that the categories are similar to other private forums on leading torrent sites.
Torrent Request – Any user with a good ratio can make a torrent request on TurkTorrent. If a user feels that the website is lacking a certain torrent, you can make a request. Using the Request page, you can add links to the torrent, add the IMDB link, and provide additional details so the mods can look it up effectively.
TurkTorrent in numbers
TurkTorrent is a Turkish tracker that allows the audience to download free indie content in the local language. There are more than 122,000 registered users on the site. In the past decade, tons of torrents have been uploaded on the site. Sure, it’s nothing compared to the top public or private torrent communities but it’s not bad either. Also, considering the fact that the majority of these torrents are quality files, you wouldn’t feel too disappointed.
As per the Alexa rankings, TurkTorrent is ranked #73,784 which makes it amongst the top 75,000 websites on the internet. It attracts more than 225,000 users a month and an average visit on the site lasts for more than 9 minutes. An average user engages with 4.72 pages before bouncing off the website. Regardless of decent page interaction, TurkTorrent maintains a commendable bounce rate of just 25.05%.
How to access TurkTorrent?
You can access TurkTorrent by searching for the term ‘TurkTorrent’ in your search engine. Alternatively, if you want to access the platform directly, you can use the following link: TurkTorrent.
TurkTorrent though it has a similar layout to other torrent sites, does have a unique color combination. The red, white, blue color combination helps separate key elements on the website. Unlike other torrent sites that are extremely text-heavy, TurkTorrent has a good number of service icons and thumbnails which add to the visual flavor. The tracker categories section is my favorite in regards to design because all the options are accompanied by small icons.
Inner Pages – You can access an inner page by clicking on any option on the homepage. TurkTorrent doesn’t have a dedicated header section and thus the content can be found right on the homepage. When you click on a particular category, you’ll be directed towards a torrent page. Once you select a torrent, you’ll find in-depth details about the title including the IMDb ratings.
TurkTorrent with its free indie library does have a lot of meat.
Accessing TurkTorrent on both mobile and desktop is seamless. Once you become a member, you can easily logon to the website. The platform is mobile friendly and thus you can use your phone to access it. However, I’d recommend using a desktop for the best experience.
Suggestions I have for TurkTorrent
Though TurkTorrent has excelled in most of the departments, I feel that it’s alienated. With the rise of Turkish cinema across the world, especially in Asian countries, it’d be great if the mods can include foreign languages. That would really help the platform to go mainstream in countries such as Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and certain European countries.
If you’re well-versed with the Turkish language, this platform is certainly a holy grail of entertainment. Name the free indie content and you’ll likely find it on this site. If not, simply request it to be uploaded on the site. Either way, it’s a win-win for everyone involved. With extended support to foreign languages, I really feel that this site has the potential to establish itself as one of the giants on the world level.
