BitSnoop is a torrent search engine created in 2009 after six months of development. Searches on the website are served using BitSnoop's own index with fuzzy searching, TrackerMatch and TV Finder.
Users are able to rate torrents and comment on them without registration, with limits to activity interval per IP address.
Similar to other BitTorrent search engines, BitSnoop performs cross-referencing of trackers in torrent. The algorithms used (referred to as TrackerMatch) are able to recognize DNS aliases, redirects, clustered trackers and exclude erroneous tracker URLs.
BitSnoop provides its users with "TV Finder" – a directory of TV-related torrents. The directory is built automatically based on search index and is able to break down listings to shows, seasons and episodes. Date browsing is also supported.
Search robots and the site itself are developed using Java technology.
