Our community resource website is an online list or catalog of websites. That is, it is a directory on the World Wide Web of (all or part of) the World Wide Web.
Historically, directories typically listed entries on people or businesses, and their contact information; such directories are still in use today.
A web directory or what we like to call a community resource website, includes entries about websites, including links to those websites, organized into categories and subcategories.
There are two ways to find information on the Web: by searching or browsing. Web directories provide links in a structured list to make browsing easier. Many web directories combine searching and browsing by providing a search engine to search the directory.
Unlike search engines, which base results on a database of entries gathered automatically by web crawler, most web directories are built manually by human editors. Many web directories allow site owners to submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submissions for fitness. Web directories may be general in scope, or limited to particular subjects or fields.
