If you aren’t a total newbie to the BitTorrent scene, chances are that you have heard about the likes of Zamunda, ArenaBG (Open) and RARBG (Open). Although not run by the same admin team, all of these sites share some common characteristics with each other - they are all huge torrent sites with massive torrent indexes and all have user bases exceeding over 100000 members. Todays post is about another BitTorrent tracker that is similar to Zamunda and Co; P2PBG. P2PBG is another huge private tracker that has nearly half a million registered members and of course, a content rich torrent index. It’s one of those general trackers where you can find almost every movie, music, TV, game and E-book torrents, both old and new. If you are interested, signups are currently open and new members are still being accepted.
Although we start most of our BitTorrent tracker related posts highlighting the positive aspects of a certain tracker, we’ll be taking a different approach with P2PBG. The site is not perfect and there are many flaws. It’s filled with advertisements (most of them adult themed and needless to say it is NSFW), the layout looks cluttered and the entire interface is in Bulgarian language. If so many things are wrong with this site, how did P2PBG recruit over 440000+ registered users? It’s pretty simple – content.
If you are looking for out of this world pre times and blazing fast download speeds on new releases, these are not the highlights of P2PBG (and you’ll be better off on a tracker such as SCC or GFT). However, P2PBG has one great advantage over other smaller trackers; torrent retention. Thanks to the huge user base, even older torrents uploaded months ago are still well seeded. The massive torrent index with over 80000 releases speaks for itself.
As you may have guessed from the name, P2PBG has its roots in Bulgaria. Site interface is in Bulgarian and almost every torrent title is named both in English as well as in Bulgarian (this problem can be rectified to a certain extend by using Google Chrome – see end of post for step by step guide). Content however is a different story - while there are some local releases indexed, most of the torrents point to English, international scene and P2P uploads.
In case you want to add P2PBG to your list of torrent sites, signups are currently open. You may need the help of a translator to go through the signup process – we suggest you use the Google Chrome approach below.
Site Name: P2PBG (http://www.p2pbg.com)
Signup URL: http://www.p2pbg.com/index.php?page=signup
How to translate P2PBG to English with Google Chrome
- Download the latest version of Google Chrome browser from here.
- Visit P2PBG signup page through this link: http://www.p2pbg.com/index.php?page=signup.
- Once the page is done loading, Google Chrome will automatically display several translation options (the message will be displayed just beneath the address bar – you can’t miss it).
- Choose the auto detected settings (should be Bulgarian to English) and hit translate. If you get the message ‘Translation failed due to server error’ keep re-trying.
- Once translation of the first page is done, you can configure Google Chrome so that it automatically translates all P2PBG pages without prompting you. Select the ‘Options’ button (in the translation help popup) and select ‘Always translate Bulgarian to English’ from the drop down menu.
