    Surviving on Private Trackers With a Low Upload Speed

    Many of torrent private trackers users complain of one problem : low upload speed . So in this topic you will find a guide that - I hope - will be useful to help handle this problem


    If you follow these tips I have no doubt you won't have any sort of a problem handling your ratio


    Let's GO !

    1 - Leave your PC running for as long as you can :
    Let's assume you have the low upload speed of 50 kb/s , and you will keep your PC running for 20 hours daily , do you know how much will you seed ?

    > Let's do the math : 50 x 60 x 60 x 20 = 4320000 kb = 4.12 GB

    Not bad at all , right ? that means an average of 123.6 GB monthly , with only 50 kb/s upload speed !




    2 - Grab freeleech torrents :
    Freeleech torrents don't count towards your download and counts to towards your upload , and this includes 2 strategies :
    > Grab fresh freeleech torrents because those get lots of seeders , and don't affect your download meter .
    > Prefer freeleech to other torrents . If you're looking for a movie then check on multiple trackers maybe you can find it freeleech on one of them . Even if you found the format you want as a normal torrent and another close format in freeleech , grab the freeleech .




    3 - Cross-seed :
    You must understand first , what is cross-seeding ?
    Cross-seeding is the process of downloading files from one tracker ( or having the file in any way ) and then use it to seed the same torrent on one or more private trackers .
    How is this helpful ?
    > If you already have the file , download the .torrent from the tracker you want to seed at , chose the path of the file and let it check . In a minute it will start seeding without costing you any download count .
    > When a fresh popular torrent is out , download it from a public tracker and seed it on all your private tracker that have that file . That's another way to raise upload without affecting download .
    > Many trackers give bonus on the size of torrents you're seeding , so you can cross-seed to get more bonus to buy upload credit , but we'll get to that later .
    But make sure to read the rules of the tracker before cross-seeding as it's not allowed on some trackers .



    4- Limit the number of trackers you use :
    Don't seed torrents on trackers you never use . It's a waste of your precious upload speed to keep seeding on trackers you barely or never use . Focus on one general tracker ( preferably IPTorrents or TorrentDay ) and a couple of other tracker for your interests . For example TehConnection if you're interested in movies that can't be found on usual general trackers , or Freshon if you're interested in TV . Always search for everything first on that private tracker , since it's much easier to build ratio there .
    Don't go around looking for trackers , you don't need just to try them , make priorities and stick to them .
    Also don't use trackers that are hard to seed on , such as BitMe or Karagarga .



    5 - Use bonus points :
    Many tracker have a bonus points system that , in most cases , can be traded for upload credit . Some tracker use a system that gives bonus according to your total seeding size or every torrent's size on it's own . That's when you use cross-seeding as explained above .
    Other trackers use a system that give bonus according to number of seeding torrents and here comes the easiest trick in torrenting ! Just browse torrents and sort them by size from smaller files to bigger files . Download as much as you can from the smallest torrents and keep seeding them and getting lots of bonus ! easy , right ?



    6 - Download smaller formats and versions :
    If you find it hard to maintain a good ratio then don't download huge files unless it'a a freeleech . You can always find a smaller version of that file . If it's an HD movie , you don't have to download it in 1080 quality , 720 or 480 would be better . If you can avoid HD and watch it in XviD format then it would be much better . Use same strategy with games , today every popular game can be found ripped or repacked in less than half of it's original size . Same thing goes for music , you don't have to download .flac files unless you're a freaking DJ ! and even if you are then 320 kb/s CBR or V0 VBR is more than enough .
    Don't download packs unless you're willing to watch every movie or play every game in it , unless it's freeleech off course .



    7 - Donate to trackers :
    Doesn't seem like the best option if you're going to get 10 GB upload credit for 10$ !
    But on some trackers , you will get a VIP membership for donating and VIP members are immune to ratio rules .
    For example , if you love games donate 20$ to BitGamer and get a VIP membership so you can download without worrying about ratio even if you don't seed anything .



    8 - Upload :
    Maybe it's weird to find a tip telling you to upload when you're looking for a solution for low upload speed , but in the matter if fact it's a good option . You see , if you're not good with seeding then uploading files that you already have would help you a get upload credit , and even bonus points on some trackers ! at least you can be sure you will get upload credit greater than size of the file .



    9 - Use ratio-less trackers :

    Ratio-less trackers are those trackers that don't care for ratio , but you have to seed your torrents for a fixed time ( usually 72 hours in one week ) and you can download as much as you can as long as you don't hit and run ( stop seeding before seeding time is complete ) .



    10 - Get a seedbox :

    The best option . You can get a seedbox for on month for a low price of 10-15$ and use it to buffer all of your accounts enough for a year or even more . Using a seedbox you can use a seedbox to make a buffer of 2 TB on IPTorrents or 5 TB on TorrentDay in one month !
    I would recommend getting a seedbox right away , that would save you time and effort .

    I am new to this Forum. So, if you liked the Post then do not forget to Thank.

    nice guide....cross seeding and freeleech i would say the best thing to do with people who do not have a great upload speed....donating also can always help but just seeding on tracker even if you are not uploading much back most trackers have a bonus points system where you can exchange for upload credit etc.
    PAY ATTENTION AND YOU WILL LEARN ALWAYS

    Also checking your local connection options very carefully is recommended. That $10-15 a month for a seedbox can be just the difference between highend DSL/Cable plus a seedbox and FTTH/FTTC instead.

    It should be great if we proceed with a trackers list with Bonus Points/ Radioless ... something on this way.

    I know mate, its very hard to get a good Upload/Download Speed in India.. Luckily my University provides a good Connection here and I get around 300Kb/s avg. Download Speed in torrents but the Upload Speed is too slow for me and largely varies Torrent to Torrent. Though I get around 50Kb/s while seeding.
