Web Directories are general subject indexes to all types of Web sites and other Internet documents.

What is a Web Directory?

A web directory is a collection of web pages (links) organized based on the topic. Web directories were specially created to help people browsing the Internet save time when looking for certain information or resources. Users can access a web directory and find a list of websites on related topics. For instance, someone who wants to know about the nearby garages then he can can use a web directory to find various garages in his locality.

Sometimes people take web directories for search engines but web directories are not search engines, even though users who access a web directory can conduct searches in order to find what they are looking for. Web directories consist various collections of links. Instead of browsing the search engines for information, users can access a certain web directory and find more information in less time. The main advantage of web directories the results, that are more accurate because the listings are manually fed by humans. However, the disadvantage of web directories is that the lists are sometimes outdated, because humans work slower than spider bots.
