I’m not sure about websites but I have a book that is THE definative guide to wood identification.
Book: Understanding Wood; A craftsmans guide to wood technology by R.Bruce Hoadley

I’m not sure exactly what you’re looking for but this book is VERY technical. For less technical reading I suggest books like : The Complete Book of Woodworking or A Complete Guide to Basic Woodworking. Both of these have general descriptions about common soft and hardwoods as well as pictures.
