Info Web World Directory. I just noticed this Web directory the other day. The layout is easy to follow and some of my search terms brought good results. (A few others didn't...) This is a free submit directory. This means non-profit sites are more likely to submit and be included. It also means tons of spam for the directory editors. The ontology of the category structure is a bit confusing at some places but on the whole I like the look of this directory.
From the site:
The main reason behind this is about providing a directory of quality sites for Internet users. Our goal is to list the best sites for a wide variety of topics giving our users the most relevant results for their searches.
It is our goal in building the most comprehensive resource on the Internet, and our goal to share it with the rest of the people, that is driving us forward. We do not make any commercial profit from this activity, and we cannot provide money as a way of appreciation for your hard work. Your knowledge and time towards our community is valuable to make our directory one of the best for the user who is seeking information.
We do not promote rank or position or optimize your site for search engines. Although we offer a search query, the purpose of this directory is to list and categorize web sites. This is just a data provider for the users for their benefit and not a search engine.
To that end, InfoWebWorld Web Directory has persistently pursued innovation and pushed the limits of existing technology to provide a fast, accurate and easy-to-use search service that can be accessed from anywhere. This made us to come out with this directory.
