Web Directories and Guides

Web directories or link directories are directories on the World Wide Web.  They basically specialize in linking to other web sites and categorize them. A web directory is not a search engine and does not display lists of web pages based on search results and keywords but  web sites in directories are listed by categories and subcategories.alt Most web directories are usually human edited and often allow sites owners to submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submission for fitness.

Web directories are very popular with webmasters and sites owners as submitting a website to a strong and authoritative directory with high rank can dramatically boost a website in major search engine results. There are different type of directories: Paid directories, Free directories, Niche directories, Regional directories and more. For sites owners, the task to know which directory has a good reputation with search engines is not an easy task. For instance Google  devalues links from paid directories and those from directories with 'free for all' services or known as link farms. At worst, submitting to link farms can even harm your website if you do exchange links and link back. But at the same time, a few paid directories have had public backing by Google, the world's largest search engine, as they charge for site review not  for inclusion and have strict reviewing guidelines.
