Our community resource website is an online list or catalog of local area websites. That is, it is a directory on the Internet of (all or part of) the World Wide Web. Historically, directories typically list entries on people or businesses and their contact information; such directories are still in use today.
Houston Business Pages or what we like to call a community resource directory include entries about websites, including links to those websites, organized into categories and subcategories.
Besides a link, each entry may include the title of the website and a description of its contents. In most web directories, the entries are about whole websites, rather than individual pages within them (called “deep links”). Websites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories. Not Ours…
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 crawlers, 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. Our entries can be listed for free, or by a paid premium submission which permits a more detailed view of the features of one’s business.
