The Internet Map

Sunday, May 11th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I found another great map site! This time the map depicts the connection between websites on the internet. 

Their About page explains how it works better than I ever could, so click About at the top of the page to learn how the site works, makes connections, and so much more.

My navigation experience started with me just clicking on the largest circles to reveal what they were. When you click a circle a pop up window of information comes up displaying the website’s name, global rank, and local rank. So the Google circle shows up at rank 1 both Globally and for the United States. 

Then I played with the zoom feature (I used my mouse wheel, but you can use the the zoom tool at the top left) to navigate to some of the smaller dots. 

Next I put in sites I wanted to find on the map like WorldStart, Ravelry, and Pinterest. The important thing to note when you’re using the search field is that you need to put in the site’s address and not just the site name. So for WorldStart you’d want to type in: www.worldstart.com not just WorldStart. 

This is a very cool way to check out the way sites connect by topic and traffic all in one place!

    I don’t understand why people use the old fashioned www. at the beginning of URL’s. That is very old school and extra typing that is not needed. Searching for “worldstart.com” and “www.worldstart.com” brings up the same information, so why not forget the outdated www. that was used back in the 1990′s when people were just discovering the internet?
