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.
Best for browsing and looking for broad or general topics.
Downside: You may have to click through categories and subcategories.
