* Given its sheer size, ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' tends to cause this due to the sheer number of characters and intersecting storylines. It gets even worse if it's only a single scene that you have in mind, the wiki only partially allays these problems.

* Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl even has a section of the website devoted to new readers so that they can catch up relatively quickly without reading every single one of the old chapters. It still recommends that the new reader read over a hundred old pages, plus everything after the artist started to use digital coloring.

* Just about any reading of ''Webcomic/SunsetGrill'' will lead to this as the series has been updating by-weekly since 2008 with very few breaks. There also isn't any formal chapter divisions to help find where things are.

* Pete Abrams of ''SluggyFreelance'' adds links to relevant past strips and plotlines upon uploading any comic that needs them. Thankfully, the site's designed so that the links stay with the strips.
* Amber Williams of ''DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' occasionally refers to relevant past strips in the commentary that appears below newer strips.

* Averted by ''IrregularWebcomic'', which has a search function that lets you search the strips by theme, by any word in the dialogue, or even by the annotations. Good thing too, as it has over 3,000 strips.

* ''DominicDeegan'''s archive is broken down by chapters. Some of them can be pretty lengthy, though.
* Gordon [=McAlpin=] of ''{{Multiplex}}'' does an excellent job of providing "related strips" links for pretty much every comic.
* Like [[SluggyFreelance Pete Abrams]] and [[DanAndMabsFurryAdventures Amber Williams]], Dan Shive of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' adds links to relevant past strips in his commentary so occasional readers aren't confused by events that happened months ago in real time but mere days ago in WebComicTime.

** They fixed the search, and clip tagging is improving. Unfortunately, as this makes {{Archive Trawl}}s easier, it also makes [[ArchiveBinge Archive]] ''[[ArchiveBinge Binges]]'' more tempting. ''Series/TheColbertReport'' still has this problem, however.
