DIRECTORY




What is a directory?

A directory, also known as a subject directory, refers to any collection
of Web sites organized into such categories as health, history, sports,
arts and entertainment, and travel. (Each directory has its own unique
categories and links.)

Library Web sites also typically have directory listings.

DATABASES




Generally, a directory, as used in computing and telephony,
refers to a repository or database of information which is
heavily optimized for reading, under the assumption that
data updates are very rare compared to data reads.
Commonly,a directory supports search and browsing in
addition tosimple lookups.

A website which offer access to a categorized listing of
otherwebsites optimized for lookup, search, or browsing
is a directory,a web directory.

WEB
DIRECTORY




A web directory or link directory is a directory on the
World Wide Web. It specializes in linking to other
web sites and categorizing those links.

A web directory is not a search engine and does not
display lists of web pages based on keywords; instead,
it lists web sites by category and subcategory.

Most web directory entries are also not found by web
crawlers but by humans. The categorization is usually
based on the whole web site rather than one page or a
set of keywords, and sites are often limited to
inclusion in only a few categories.

Web directories often allow site owners to directly
submit their site for inclusion, and have editors
review submissions for fitness.

RSS directories are similar to web directories, but
contain collections of RSS feeds, instead of links
to web sites.

SEARCH ENGINES




A web search engine is designed to search for information on
the World Wide Web. The search results are generally presented
in a list of results and are often called hits. The information
may consist of web pages, images, information and other types
of files. Some search engines also mine data available in
databases or open directories.

Unlike Web directories, which are maintained by human editors,
search engines operate algorithmically or are a mixture of
algorithmic and human input.
