The Web is potentially a terrific place to get information on almost any topic.It’s important to give some thought to your search strategy.If you’re more interested in broad, general information, the first place to go is to a Web Directory.  If you’re after narrow, specific information, a Web search engine is probably a better choice.Enlisted here are a couple of strategies that are basically required to conduct a search on major Search engines.

1)Searching by Means of Subject Directories:If you are clear about the topic of your query, start with a Web directory rather than a search engine.  Directories probably won’t give you anywhere near as many references as a search engine will, but they are more likely to be on topic.Web directories usually come equipped with their own keyword search engines that allow you to search through their indices for the information you need.

2)Searching by Means of Search Engines:This is where things start to get complicated.Search engines are trickier than they look!If you understand how search engines organize information and run queries, you can maximize your chances of getting hits on URLs that matter.
And the last but not the least important things.Be specific in your search.Use proper keywords and meta tags.

I thinks it’s a social networking strategy to market your products or website.

Use online directories to improve your search engine ranking. That is all what you can do with them. Because the most valuable and most potential customers comes from search engines.

Thank you for this post. It made me aware of what a web directory is. I barely used that before. Now that I know how helpful it is I will definitely use it for my searches. Web directory and Search Engines are the best way to find what yo are looking for.

SaniBD, are you just writing a stream of consciousness? That barely made sense.

Nobody searches by directory anymore. They’re a joke. The only reason they still exist is because they’re bait for SEO junkies like me. At one time, they were a useful place for finding niche information- those days are long gone now that they’re all spammed to death.

When you do a search on google like this GOOGLE KEYWORD the engine will pull up all the pages with thoughs 2 words anywhere on the page. So there for your search is not really accurate. What i normally do is search on google like this “GOOGLE KEYWORD” by putting the words in a phrase google will give you more accurate results for the information you are looking for.

I would never waste my time getting information from directory like the person said above “D’s are just for SEO” and they are junk for information. Best way to get information is to go to WIKI or just look at the top ten websites that show up for that keyword and get information from thoughs sites then re write it and add a little so it becomes your own.

Mother fucking bots on this forum are getting way outta hand. Look at the format of these posts… I know people from India speak broken English(actually most speak perfect English), but more than 1/2 of these posts have to be from bots…
