As explained by this answer, adding trackers to torrents may speed up their download, as well as allow you to share the files with more peers.

Is there some way by which I can automatically add a list of trackers to every torrent I add on my client (which is uTorrent), besides the ones embedded in the .torrent file?
Or do I need to do this manually for each torrent?

Is the torrent present on all those trackers? Adding a bunch of useless trackers to every torrent might not cause any problems, but it might slow down downloads as the client makes repeated useless requests to trackers that will then reply with a "torrent not found" error. –  Karan Jan 13 '13 at 19:34
@Karan: ok, so maybe a way to provide a list, so that whenever I add a torrent to my client he asks me which trackers from that list I want to add? –  JNat Jan 13 '13 at 19:57
You'll have to see if someone's coded an app for this, or make one yourself. Perhaps it might be easier to do this with the uTorrent WebUI, but again I don't know if a solution already exists. I think you can add trackers to multiple selected torrents in uTorrent, but that will remove other trackers that exist already. –  Karan Jan 13 '13 at 20:01
@Karan: yes, you can add trackers to several torrents at once, but uTorrent overwrites the existing ones. –  JNat Jan 13 '13 at 20:03
Yeah, that's what I remembered it doing. –  Karan Jan 13 '13 at 20:03
