Top 100 Augmented Reality Sites on Google Search

Top 100 AR Sites chart

Augmented reality (AR) is a hot topic. What kind of AR sites that sits on top 100 rank on Google Search these days? This is a list of AR sites categorized by the type of the sites. However, the result changes everyday.

1. Encyclopedia 
Sites like Wikipedia and Howstuffworks are placed as top for letting everyone know about the definition of AR. 

2. Reputable Blog and News sites
Mashable, Engadget, Wall Street Journal, CNET, DigitalTrends, MITTechnologyReview, TED, Gizmodo, TechCruch,  PCWorlds, ReadWrite, BBC, The Verge, National Geographic, SlashGear, AugmentedRealityTrends, AugmentedBlog.
These blog and news sites have a tag or category for AR news and articles.

3. Top AR Companies and their products
Junaio, Layar, Metaio, Total Immersion, Blippar, Wikitude, Qualcomm, Aurasma, Zugara, Augment, twnkls, Vuzix, Infinity, ARMedia, Infinity, String, ZooAR.

4. Academia, Research Labs and University
ARToolkit - HITL, Hitlab, Tinmith by Wearable Computer Lab, Oliver Kreylos, International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) , CAMP Lab of TUM,  AR at MIMAS, OARN, ICG at TuGraz, The Miami University AR Center, RCV Lab at Queen's University

5. Personal
Keiichi Matsuda's project on AR design. It is cool to have a personal web page on the top 100.

6. Others sites including news and various article

As expected, academia and research labs have good positions on top 100 Google Search. Although the number is few. ISMAR as the prestigious conference on AR, however, is ranked on 62 (page 6 for 10 sites per page). I personally think, Google search should rank ISMAR higher because ISMAR produces high quality papers in Augmented Reality that may become the potential resources in the future. Hopefully, ISMAR's rank will raise very soon.
