If you have a website and you want to find similar sites, you can use Google related search right there in the search bar to let Google do the hard work for you.

This method uses a search operator, which are easy to use and really handy for doing slightly more specific searches. We’ve talked about these before when doing a search within a site.


Use the related search operator to make sure you haven’t missed any websites which maybe relevant. This might be particularly useful if you’re trying to find lots of similar blogs that you might want to reach out to, or if you’re researching a niche topic that you’ve found one really good site for.

This method won’t turn up everything, but it’s a great addition to your research toolkit.


  1. Find the url of the site you want to find similar sites to
  2. In the address bar type related: and copy your url. E.g. as in the pictured example above: related:
  3. Hit enter
  4. Google will bring up all the sites which it thinks are similar to this site
