This Directory

Automated search engines are increasingly unable to turn up useful results to search queries. The web continues to grow at staggering rates. The quality and comprehensiveness of search engines has suffered. This is a premium web directory focused on providing high-quality, well-categorized listings of business-related as well as private websites. We've been building software, websites and online communities since 1999. We saw the need for a quality, human-edited directory that wasn't impossible to get into due to archaic, undefined rules. So this directory was born.

Our Goal

Instead of fighting the explosive growth of the Internet, our Directory provides the means for the Internet to organize itself. As the Internet grows, so do the number of net-citizens. These citizens can each organize a small portion of the web and present it back to the rest of the population, culling out the bad and useless and keeping only the best content.
