Best of the Web is a web directory that categorizes websites. The goal of the website is to create a valuable listing that could serve as a guidance. They want to ensure that the websites submitted in this directory are really worthy of being there.
It is considered to be one of the oldest search directory, being established in 1994. Even though the website started as one directory, it eventually evolved into several directories, including Web Directory, UK Directory, Blog Directory and Local Directory. All of these directories make a huge collection with millions of websites, divided into over 100,000 categories.
Besides free listing, there is a possibility to upgrade to a ProListing which offers additional features.
