About Simply Local NC’s Community Resource

Our community resource website  is an online list or catalog of websites. It is a directory on the World Wide Web of (all or part of) the World Wide Web. Directories are a way to find listed entries and information on people or businesses, and their contact information. Directories are still in use today and a great way to bring extra exposure to your business or events.


A web directory or what we like to call a community resource website, includes entries about websites and events, including links to those websites, organized into categories and subcategories. Besides a link, each entry may include the title of the website, and a description of its contents. In most web directories, the entries are about whole websites, rather than individual pages within them (called “deep links”). Websites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories.
There are two ways to find information on the Web: by searching or browsing. Web directories provide links in a structured list to make browsing easier.


Many web directories combine searching and browsing by providing a search engine to search the directory. Unlike search engines, which base results on a database of entries gathered automatically by web crawler, most web directories are built manually by human editors. Many web directories allow site owners to submit their site for inclusion or allow the site owner to submit it for them.


Some entries may be listed for free, or by paid submission (meaning the site owner must pay to have his or her website listed).
