What is a web directory?

Website that provides a list of links to other pages arranged into categories and accompanied by a brief description of their contents.

Most directories have programmers who edit them periodically and control the addition of new sites to the list. Automatic directories lack selection criteria and add any page, becoming Link Farms.

The Open Directory Project (ODP) is the largest non-automated directory on the Internet.
