This article discusses where you are able to download music and game from the Internet. I offer some vital tips to help you recognize bad sites that may not deliver on their promises.
It is common knowledge that if you are connected to the Internet, you are able to download music and game.
However, finding sites that are actually legit and also deliver what they claim to offer is not an easy task. I have personally spent quite a lot of money on these sites and it took me about 6 or 7 attempts to find a site that delivers quality.
The most popular places to download music and game are the peer-to-peer networks. Some peer-to-peer networks are free, like limewire, and they are generally quite good especially as they are free, but they do lack overall quality. Furthermore, they are laden with viruses and Trojan horses that are designed to completely wreck your computer.
It is not a surprise that there are many negatives of such sites because they are not charging you anything for it.
If you are looking for added quality and a more extensive range I would personally recommend the paid peer-to-peer networks that are on offer. They usually charge a one-time fee, and from there you can download as much music and game as you like. No extras fees will be demanded from you in the future.
The quality is far higher than on the free sites, especially when it comes to downloading games. When trying to download games on the free sites, it is common to actually download something completely different to what the file name says. This is extremely frustrating when you have waited hours for the download to complete.
Furthermore, the download speeds of the paid sites are much quicker, and if you have a decent broadband connection you will be flying!
However, even though the paid sites are far better than the free ones to download music and game, you must still be very careful which ones you select.
As I stated earlier, I have done quite a lot of research into this field. I would like to offer you some tips on spotting those sites which are more likely to be dishonest ones:
1. Paid sites should only charge you a one time fee. If they are demanding regular payments from you then this is a very good sign to steer clear of them.
2. A web site called alexa.com checks traffic rankings of all sites on the Internet. When I am looking at a new site that I might wish to pay a service for, I always check its rankings.
If the site is in the top 100,000 most popular sites, then this is a good sign to me. This is because it shows me that the site is receiving regular traffic, and so people will be uploading and downloading files regularly.
If you find that the site is ranked at 750,000 for instance, I can tell you that they are only receiving a few visitors a day. Consequently, what are the chances that they own a popular download site that you can download a wide range of music and game from with such few visitors?
Not many people know about this trick, and I have found it extremely useful in the past to judge a sites value.
3. My final tip is to actually type the sites name into Google followed by the word review. Google will display a bunch of results, mostly from forums, giving peoples views and opinions on the site based on their experiences.
Clearly, if words like scam are being posted on these forums in relation to the site, then again this is a good reason to steer clear of them. On the other hand, the site might have received praise and this would encourage you to invest.
These are my main tips and I hope that they have been useful to you. I wish you the best of luck in finding a site to download music and game from.
