The Internet map is brainchild of Ruslan Enikeev and connects 350,000 websites from over 196 countries based on topical similarity. Just like Google, it reads Meta data and content of a website and link it to other websites in the world that curate content about similar topics. Instead of ranking websites based on its traffic and authority, it represents them as a large circle – bigger the circle, more popular is the website.
It’s a great tool for two purposes, one, you can find sites related to your favourite sites and start exploring them and two, if you’re a web-master, you can start finding sites similar to yours which might result in a future collaboration. The Internet map works like Google Maps, bigger websites are given preference, and are visible from the first layer, though if you want to find smaller scale sites related to them, you’d have to go deeper.
