In today’s modern era where whole world running on the internet we should know about what is search engine and directories and also know their difference. If you have been surfing around through the World Wide Web, the certainly you've used the search bar of your online browser to look for about a certain topic. After you've get into a word a term, you'll immediately get record of possible sites that contains the words or the terms you've entered from your search bar.

Now question arises here that what are search engine and directories and what difference in both of it? So by giving answer of it first of all we discuss about search engine. If you have been surfing around through the internet, the certainly you've used the search bar of your online browser to look for about a certain topic. After you've get into a keyword, you'll immediately get record of possible sites that contains that keyword you've entered from your search bar. This implies if more individuals can see the back link to your web page from a search engine, then more individuals will be viewing your web page as well. This is what a search engine does. It gives out web page hyperlinks so individuals will have no trouble looking for whatever they're looking for. A Search Engine may implement human operated results or crawler based results or both to provide look for results for customers.

Now come to the point about online directories. It is a website that contains category wise records of links from around the web. They help to show best and informative links for a particular category. We can also say that a listing, however, is designed by human-beings who check out online websites, evaluate their material, and choose how each site should fit into the directory’s framework.

After know about above we discuss their differences. The difference between a web listing and a search engine is that robots (scan) the web for websites to include in their data source, and they do not offer an index able back link to your website. Directories however, are mostly human modified, and websites are usually analyzed before they are entered into their index. They also offer, in most cases anyway, index able hyperlinks to your website, and this is what most search engine marketers are looking for in a listing, fixed index able hyperlinks that passes on Google PR.

Both search engine and online directories are different from each other. Search engine uses software known as spider to find websites and index their information; the online search engine then uses exclusive criteria to rank those Web sites. But on the other hand business internet directories are built by individuals who visit websites asses their content and fit into their structure.
