has reached three billion torrent downloads this week. The site is reaching this milestone just after announcing its first video promotion deal and less than five months after getting to two billion downloads.

Mininova traffic stats.

Mininova is a tad shy of the original goal to double the number of torrent downloads every half year, but the overall statistics are still very impressive: The site is getting about six to seven million search requests per day, and there are almost 14 million unique files in the Mininova database. These files are connected to 537,000 torrents - a number that is growing by about a thousand each and every day.

Mininova president Erik Dubbelboer was recently interviewed by the German Netzpolitik TV podcast where he revealed that the site has about two million unique visitors and 14 to 15 million pageviews per day - statistics that according to Dubbelboer mean that "two percent of the world population" have visited Mininova so far.
