Torrent Links Mysteriously Disappear From Torrentz2 Again | TorrentFreak

With millions of visits per day, Torrentz2 is without a doubt the most popular torrent meta-search engine on the Internet.

The site took this spot from the original Torrentz site, which surprisingly closed its doors during the summer of 2016.

Up until a month ago everything was running smoothly, but that changed when links to other torrent sites disappeared late December. Instead of a metasearch engine, Torrentz2 turned into a database of torrent metadata, and traffic started to drop off.

Torrentz2 remained without links for roughly three weeks, after which the site, just as surprisingly, returned to its former glory. However, that didn’t last very long.

Starting yesterday, all links have mysteriously disappeared again, without any official explanation.

Two weeks ago we managed to get hold of the operator of the site, hoping to find out more about the initial problems. He replied at the time, but preferred not to comment on the disappearing links incident or the site’s future.

Now the that the links have gone again it appears that there may be more going on than a simple technical issue. We can only speculate, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if users will have to get used to the situation.

The links could return and disappear again. For now, it all remains a mystery.

While the site has become harder to use, technically the hashes can still be used to download the associated torrents. There are even several Chrome extensions and Firefox addons that help with this.
