Best of the Web

Full Description

The Best of the Web (BOTW) directory is a human-edited, general directory of websites, arranged by topic or region. The directory also features a local directory, a UK and Ireland directory, a senior housing directory, and a blog directory, each of which are maintained to the standards of one of the oldest web directories on the Internet. BOTW began in 1994 as a web award site, then reappearing as a general web directory in 2003.

The web directory’s top-level categories include Arts, Business, Computers, Finance, Games, Health, Home, Kids & Teens, News, Recreation, Reference, Science, Shopping, Society, Sports, and Regional, its regional tree being a full-featured category covering most of the cities and towns in the English-speaking world, as well as several where English is not the primary language.

Web site listings may be submitted to appropriate categories in the Best of the Web directory or, for a little more, both a web directory and local listing may be possible.

The review fee for a site listing in the regular part of the web directory costs $149.95 per year or at one-time fee of $299.95. Submitted site listings may include a Facebook profile, Twitter ID, Google Plus profile, and a Linkedin profile.

For a web directory listing plus a listing in the directory’s Local section, the costs are $199.95, as an annual fee. New to Best of the Web is its BOTW ProListing, which permits a site to highlight its featured content, at a cost of $7.95┬áper month for three sublistings.

Best of the Web also offers an affiliate program, which is described in detail, as well as a Trust Seal program, which will verify business information and allow verified sites to display its seal, as a means of putting site visitors at ease.
