Niche Directories

A niche directory is one that is narrowly focused, generally on one specific topic or narrow range of topics. An example of a niche directory would be those which only list medical websites. A directory of Christian churches would also be a niche directory, but so would a directory that covers a wider range of religions until, at some point, the decision of whether a directory is to be classified as a niche directory of a general directory would be subjective.

Technically speaking, a directory that lists only sites within the United States, or one of its states or cities, might be considered a niche directory. However, rather than having regionally oriented subcategories within two different category trees, for the purposes of categorization within the WDR Directory of Directories, I have opted to place them within the Regional subcategories of the General Directories tree, as many of them do cover a wide range of topics, albeit within a restricted geographical area.

Currently, the WDR Directory of Directories includes, within the Niche Directories tree, subcategories for Education, Environment, Ethnic, Health, Religion, Under 21, and Web Design. Others will be created, and these may be further subdivided, as it becomes necessary.

For the combined purposes of search engine optimization and the likelihood of receiving direct traffic from a web directory, a listing in a niche directory related to the topic may be more valuable than a listing in an appropriate category of a general web directory, as an appropriate listing in reputable niche directory may be given significant weight by a search engine, and people who are interested in your topic are more likely to be browsing an on-topic niche directory than a general web directory.
