Posted by General Advice on September 16th, 2019

Every one of us faces some minor difficulties in one way or other. These minor issues need immediate action. Actions that are simple, easy to follow, and can be learned easily. There are tons of how to websites out on the internet that helps people learn some basic life skills. Some of the most prominent names include Instructables and the WikiHow – a part of the Wikipedia association. Here is a comprehensive list of the major "how-to" websites on the internet.


WikiHow is one of the most reputable websites on the internet. It is a part of the Wikimedia Foundation and has thousands of contributors to it. The content creators try to explain the steps in clear and concise steps. Addition of clear and simple graphics makes the rest of the part easy.


One of the major websites on the list is About. The company is owned by the New York Times and is visited by more than 50 million visitors in a month. The site boasts a vast range of articles, video blogs, and "how-to" tutorials. The expected number of such articles is more than two million. This makes the website one of the most trusted and reputable platforms on the internet.


Instructables, previously a part of the Squid Lab, was spun out in the year 2006. Since then, the website has hosted hundreds of thousands of "how-to" articles and blogs. The community takes pride in its number and the range of subjects that the site deals with every day. Every content goes through a rigorous process, which is then published on the website based on the quality of the information provided.


Trusted by more than 10 million visitors every month, the eHow has more than a half a million articles that provide usefully "How To" information throughout the world. Whether you have issues related to your finances or something related to your business, car or parenting, the website caters to the needs of every individual and has been able to make a difference in the industry.


One of the most prominent websites on the internet, HowStuffsWorks, has its humble beginnings way back in the year 1998. The company started at a professor's kitchen table and went to gradually add more easy to understand, valuable, and comprehensive guides for everyone in the industry. The traffic to the website now clocks to more than 30 million visitors every month. The company is growing leaps and bounds every day and is giving a serious competition to other major players in the industry.


LifeHacker is another one of the most popular websites on the internet and is full of "how-to" guides for its visitors. The website provides advice on a range of topics. Whether it is something related to health or something about the latest technologies, the site offers all sort of information to its users.

The list may look exhaustive, but there are very few companies that can dominate the game. These websites have been in the industry for a long time and know what works and what does not. Looking at their volume, scale, and quality of work provided, there is hardly any other platform that can make a difference in the industry.
