Sites to find sites like the ones you like?

Are there any sites out there that work on a principle similar to gnod, but for finding web sites you might like? i.e. You input sites that you like, and it gives you a list of other sites you might also like.

StumbleUpon helps to do this, or an easy way is to type "related:url" into Google, replacing "url" with the website address of the site you like (example with MeFi).

I was going to suggest stumbleupon as well.

Try Google sets.

Bonzai asked a similar question last month. Best answers were the recommendation engine Hunch (see, for instance, their Related pages for Metafilter) and Google Reader's personalized suggestions feature.

Didn't see this in the previous question; I've used a plugin for firefox which did this, it would have a sidebar that would list related pages at most sites I was at. SimilarWeb. Been a while since I used it (reason not still using was switched browsers, wasn't an issue with the plugin). But it did come up with some neat recommendations during the time I used it.
