Yahoo! Directory is an example of a commercial subject directory. Subject directories are collections of Web sites that people have selected and organized.

They have arranged selected Web sites into subject categories and sub-categories.

Sometimes links are annotated so you'll know before clicking on it what a site contains.

Many commercial subject directories, such as Yahoo, also have a search engine function.

The quality of sites in a subject directory is usually good.
