What ISP do you have?

Did you set up port-forwarding on your router?

Well even if there are 600+ seeders, if you aren't connected to any of them, you aren't going to get any speed, if you've already opened up your ports, then you can only wait until you connect with some seeders, but then again that doesn't necessarily mean everyone who's seeding is uploading at blazing speeds.

sometimes you have to wait before you get a good seeder.

Simplest way: enable UPnP on your router.

Then in uTorrent, click:

-> Options
-> Setup Guide
-> Run Tests
now wait until it finishes
-> Save & Close

By the way, torrents can be discussed here as long as you are not talking about things that infringe against copyrights. It should be fine as long as your use of torrents are legal.

join a private site, quality seeders over quantity
also, if torrents are just eating your upload speeds, cap em off. I usually go %60 of the max upload it can get

I only hang out with cool seeders so I can awesome speeds all day every day. But seriously, its all luck in the end unless you have a good private tracker.
