Think of the last 10 cool sites you visited that really had an impact on you (don't worry you don't actually need to remember what they were) - how did you find the majority off them? What was the most common way you arrived at them? - You can pick your top 3 options!

Try to be honest and also try to limit this to sites that you would consider indie, old web or web revival sites (not archival sites or general modern ones).

Im curious to see the results! We have a diverse range of different kinds of linking within the web revival community, so which ones are most helpful to people?

I found the first few by browsing the Neocities tags for different interests like "scifi", "retro", etc. Then I found the rest by clicking every external link those sites had.

I included Webrings as my third choice. I haven't really found any great sites through them, but I love the concept and know that someday I'll find the bestest site ever through a webring.

I often go to the Neocities list and sort by 'last updated' to find new/active sites, and then follow the cool ones I find. It works most of the time, but there's a few sites that seem to automatically update so I also get to see the same ones a lot... Aside from that I just follow links that lead to other links that lead to other links and so on!

I love browsing the link page on someone's site (in fact, it's probably my #1 favorite section of a personal/fan site!) as well as on a forum. Other than that, if you have a link on your forum signature, chances are I would click it!

I think link pages are my favorite, although they can get overwhelming pretty fast, but if they're accompanied by a short description. Here's an example of the kind of link page that appeals to me: Lost Letters.

Yeah for me it was a mix of browsing most popular and new websites on Neocities, as well as exploring the tags. Also, the YesterWeb webring, and clicking on buttons on whatever website I was currently on.

Honestly I simply find sites via other sites' link lists, the forum's "show website" button, or rarely in web rings when I feel like it. I don't use Neocities at all.
