How To Find The Most Interesting Websites On The Internet

Jul 25, 2008
The Internet isn't all serious business. In fact, we all like to take a break from the hustle and bustle and just view websites that are interesting, make artistic statements, or are just plain weird. These "special" websites can be tough to find via search engines, but finding the "gems" of the Internet is very well possible.

Topsites are an option for anyone wanting to find a new website, but also find new websites based on how others have ranked their experience with the website in question. Topsites allow for users to vote on websites they thought were interesting, which gives others the benefit of joining the bandwagon where possible.

One trend hitting the Internet is to find websites through StumbleUpon, or otherwise called SU. SU is an application that will show websites to Internet users based on what they like, how others have rated the resources, and several other factors. This gives internet users the best choices possible in finding new websites, and is highly recommended.

Just like a topsite website, a common directory can give Internet users an easy solution to finding new websites. Directories have one benefit that most topsites don't: they allow for premium results to be searched. To get listed as a premium listing, website owners will have to pay the directory money. This shows that the resource is dedicated and confident in their website- which that in itself makes it viewing worthy.

Some websites will run mailing lists, or otherwise known as newsletters, to do the hard work in finding new and intriguing websites. Those who subscribe to the mailing list will get updates via mail, but there is also a new trend forming in RSS feeds. RSS feeds allow anyone with an RSS aggregator to receive updates on websites instantly. This is a great solution for those who want to view cool sites with minimal effort.

Lastly, there are many fun websites found simply by visiting websites that award trophies to other websites for excellent content. Such websites will scour the web for cool designs, content, and applications. After everything is voted on, the results are revealed to the public for viewing. This process ensures only genuinely interesting content is being received by the end user.

In Conclusion

It's time to say goodbye to the search engine, and say hello to the many alternatives that we can use to find new websites based on their worth- not their ability to cheat search engine rankings. Ironically enough, you'll likely have to use a search engine to find the directories and top sites that are required for most to find the intriguing websites they wish to visit.
