Web directories are sites that categorises other websites according to their specific niches.
Some directories are very general in scope and list websites across a wide range of categories. Such directories are often called general directories. Then there are also another type of directories, called niche directories, which focuses on very specific topics or regions. A new type of directories in recent months, called bidding directories, allows sites to be placed for a link position -- either on the main page or category page -- according to the amount that is bidded upon.
