Ruslan Enikeev's 'The Internet Map' puts the world's largest sites into an astrological perspective. The round planet-like circles are sized based on popularity, and are positioned on the infographic according to subject matter and geography.

Clusters surrounding the Yahoo, Google, Facebook and Youtube hubs reveal just how central these online players are. More obscure addresses such as addthis.com and cloudfront.net also appear on Enikeev's graph, and though they may be comparatively small, their presence speaks to their considerable following.

The 350,000 sites listed are matched with approximately two million links, all of which represent 196 countries. The comprehensive nature of The Internet Map makes it a reliable source for tech information, especially for start-up companies looking to get a foot in the door.
