How can you find the technology that was used to build a website? I know isitwp.com -  tells you if it's WordPress and Wix and Weebly usually identify themselves early in the source. But how about sites like www.pingdom.com or www.gotoassist.com?

Thanks

You can also use 'built with' http://builtwith.com/ .  On most of my sites, it is pretty misleading because even though there is a Wordpress blog, 95% of the sites are custom and don't use any framework.
