How to add more search engines to uTorrent

Written by Shayad Hosein on . Posted in Blog

uTorrent, one of the most popular BitTorrent clients, has a built-in search box but its default configuration isn't very useful. Today I am going to share a tip that will improve your searching capabilities in uTorrent. I shared this tip on nsane forums on September 11th, 2009. This article provides a step-by-step guide on how to add more search engines to uTorrent.

The default search engines that come with uTorrent are pretty lame. I have compiled a mega list of search engines that you can use in your uTorrent configuration. The list consists of 20+ search engines that you can use to search for torrents directly from within uTorrent instead of visiting the sites manually.

The list is sorted based on my preference so you can adjust the order as you desire.Wherever possible, I have included the parameters to sort the list of results by descending number of seeds.

Instructions:

  • Open uTorrent Preferences.
  • Expand the Advanced options on the left and click on "UI Extras".
  • Optionally you may want to delete all your currently listed search engines.
  • Copy the list as-is and paste it into the box for search engines.
  • Click OK and enjoy.
