6 Online Services to find Websites with Similar Content

Often you may want to keep a list of sites having similar type of content like HTML Tutorials, Mac news, online Radio, Live Cricket news etc. Google is as always the old and good guide for this purpose but inexperienced user may mess up by improper use of Google Search. So, there are some online services that are specially designed to catalog websites with similar content. Today I will tell you about 6 similar online services listed in the order of my likings. You are free to suggest any similar service that I have missed.

Similar Sites is the oldest and undoubtedly the best online service to search for websites with similar content.
Features
  • Gives description about the site: Thumbnail, Language, Category, Topics.
  • Rates similar websites with a similarity score in percentage. Shows having less than 50% similarity are not listed. Similarity is judged by many parameters to be discussed in the following.
  • Shows thumbnails of similar websites and popular topics listed in those sites.
  • Users can rate the accuracy of the found results.
  • You can submit a site to index by using the online form.
  • It further analyze the website for ‘keyword density analysis’ and also lists sites having similar ‘keyword density’.
  • it also lists sites having similar topics and similar HeatMap. HeatMap predicts how a real human being would most likely view a website upon first arrival.
more of it in my opinion is the second best in the quality of similar websites.
Features
  • Gives description about the site: Thumbnail, Category, popularity.
  • Rates similar websites with an indicator of similarity and popularity.
  • Shows thumbnails of similar websites and categories listed in those sites.
  • No way to submit new site for indexing.
  • An exciting feature of this service is ‘auto-suggest’ which can search in your recent browsing history for suggesting websites and tags that might be of your interest.
A like B is another nice search engine for similar websites. It is a very new online service and yet very complete.
Features
  • Gives description about the site: Thumbnail, Category.
  • Shows thumbnails and information of similar websites and categories listed in those sites.
  • No way to submit new site for indexing.
Similar Sites Search is also a good service. But I am not too impressed in the quality of similar websites as with above mentioned services.
Features
  • Gives description about the site: Language, Category, Popularity. Doesn’t show Thumbnails.
  • Rates similar websites with an indicator of similarity and popularity.
  • Users can rate the accuracy of the found results and the popularity of the site.
  • No special online form to submit sites to index. You can rather use their contact form you submit your site of interest.
WEBSITES LIKE is also a new entry to this list of similar sites search engine. I am again not too impressed in the quality of similar websites.
Features
  • Does not give Information, Language of the site. It only lists Categories and gives Thumbnail.
  • Shows thumbnails and information of similar websites and categories listed in those sites.
  • No special online form to submit sites to index. You can rather use their contact form you submit your site of interest.
SITES LIKE is also a very old service but yet it is very basic in its features.
Features
  • Does not give Information, Language, Thumbnail of the site. It only lists Categories.
  • It only lists similar sites but do not show Thumbnail, Information, Category of that site.
  • Offers the quickest way to submit a site. Fill in the online form.
I will not be listing two other sites:
  1. similar sites : Very less database and features. Submitting a site requires you to register an account.
  2. Who is Like it : Moderate database but I find it buggy, not always shows results.
My Verdict
Personally I would like suggest you to use the top three search engines for finding quality sites with similar content. Other services are also good so you may like to use them all to find your favorite. Insights in Technology is currently listed in only A like B and Similar Sites Search.
