General Web Directories

A directory is not a search engine, although many directories include a search field, and some search engines include directories. Search engines display lists of sites based on keywords or key phrases entered into the search field, while web directories organize sites into categories and subcategories. Web directory listings were initially intended to be found by humans rather than search engine spiders, although the latter now seems to be the more common function of most directories.

Some web directories are focused on specific geographic locations or topics, such as forum directories, blog directories, shopping directories, church directories, and other niche directories. Other directories are more general in scope, listing websites whose topics span a wide range of topics or geographic areas; these are general web directories.

For the purpose of categorization, the WDR Directory of Directories will consider those which cover a variety of topics to be general web directories, and we will subdivide these directories into Regional, Topical, and Comprehensive subcategories.

Directories that serve the purpose of listing a wide range of topics, as well as a regional tree, may be listed directly beneath the Comprehensive category.

Directories that include a range of topical categories, but do not include a regional tree, will be listed beneath the Topical subcategory, while those whose focus is on the location of the business or organization represented by the listed sites, rather than the topics of the site, will be listed within the Regional subcategory, as will those which restrict submissions to a particular geographic location.
