Finding the Right Directories for Your Website

Web directories are search engines of sorts which are operated and maintained by humans. On the contrary, the more popular variety of search engines are crawler-/bot-based and mostly operate without human intervention. Web directories specialize in linking to and categorizing web sites and, as such, do not display lists of web pages based on keywords like search engines do. Instead, they list web sites by category and subcategory. Furthermore, categorization of sites is usually based on the entire site and not on individual pages or set of keywords.
