A directory is a website that provides listings of websites in specific categories and provides search features to allow users to find resources. A directory is like a mini search engine as it wants to list relevant websites in their respective categories. Most of the time directories are edited by humans rather than automated bots (as opposed to search engines like Google and yahoo).


An online directory can also be known as a web directory or a link directory.


Why It's Important

Getting your website listed in directories can be helpful to your SEO efforts as it helps you to drive relevant incoming backlinks. If you are listed in a very powerful directory such as yahoo or Dmoz, this can have a significant positive effect on your search engine rankings.


If you are listed in a high traffic directory, this can lead to more relevant traffic for your website as well.
