Directories make our search easier since it organizes files, numbers, database, services and etc in an organized manner. Take for instance; just imagine yourself without a phone directory. I bet you will have a headache in finding numbers for homes, commercial, industrial, office or establishment and the like. Now, let us go to a larger scale. How can we find a systematic topic that interest us or research some subject matter without a web category?

The category is based on on the whole web site. There are various types of directories. Most directories are of general in nature. One of the best examples of general directory is Yahoo! Directory, which is freely available to all. Another is the DMOZ.
