Open Directory

Hostway Marketing - May 14, 2009

The Open Directory is edited by a large network of volunteers located all over the world. These editors weed out the bad Web sites and links and create a directory of valuable Web sites arranged by topic.

Famous Users

Many major search engines, including Google, AOL Search, Netscape Search, Lycos, Direct Hit and Hot Bot use the Open Directory as the basis for their directories. Because the directory is used by major search engines, establishing a link to your Web site in the Open Directory can boost your search engine ranks.
