I'm not sure if this has been suggested before or if something similar to the idea has been implemented already. Here it is:

Example query: "sites like vine.co"
Example results: "mixbit.com, vimeo.com, youtube.com" etc

Another:

"sites like soundcloud.com"
"bandcamp.com, newgrounds.com" (dozens of other music sites I can't remember)

No. Possibly Wikipedia. Damnit. DDG's engine is lame. I hate this lame trend of building off a stack of web-query APIs. I hate the web. I hate you.

I think this is a very good idea. And maybe it could be extended to a more general purpose such as "sites like", "movies like", "songs like", "bands like", "books like" etc etc. It could be a very useful utility!

Awesome! And they have a JSON API so this could work perfectly!

If we also wanted to implement "movies like", "books like", etc, there is a website called http://www.tastekid.com that could be useful too.
