KickassTorrents has just reached the top 70 most popular sites in the world, according to current Alexa rankings.
This is up 15 positions (from 85) since the beginning of 2016, and over 80 positions (from 151) from 2015, reports TorrentFreak.
While it is simple to point out the obvious reasons for the site’s popularity, KAT is the only Torrent site anywhere in the top 100, beating popular rivals PirateBay, Mininova and isohunt.
The website’s rise through the rankings can be attributed somewhat to The Pirate Bay’s recent domain issues, which previously outranked it in popularity.
KickassTorrents is the first torrent site to be ranked among the Alexa top 70 since Mininova in 2007.
