Subject directories

Subject directories are hierarchical lists of websites that are chosen and classified by actual human beings. They are useful places to start if you are not really sure what you are looking for. Starting from one of the major categories, click through until you find the kind of information you are after. Most directories also allow you to search for a topic within their index. Many may also add results from one of the major search engines. Typically subject directories index a much smaller number of webpages than search engines.
