Owned by Behrendt Professional Corporation, and based in Ottawa, Canada, the Aviva Directory is a family-friendly, general web directory, established in 2005, which employs a team of editors who add useful content to the directory, cull dead links from its pages, and who seek to ensure the good quality of its categories and listed websites, and to maintain the integrity of the directory.
Aviva Directory’s submission plans are fee-based, and include both annual and permanent options, offering submission fees of $49.95 per year or $149.95 for a permanent listing. Descriptions are limited to five hundred characters, and sites should be submitted to the most appropriate subcategory of the directory. Subpages are accepted as long as they are appropriate for the category and contains sufficient content. A synopsis of the Aviva Directory’s submission guidelines is posted on the directory’s submission page.
Other features of Aviva Directory include readings on a variety of topics, including tips for people hoping to start a business buying and selling Internet domains, starting a successful blog launch, and cheaply branding a startup business. A new feature of the directory are articles that are published on corresponding category pages, four of which are randomly highlighted on the index page.
