Define Directory

directory. 1. A subdivision of a web site. The term is used most frequently in the PC or Windows area. On Macs, directories are usually referred to as folders, which is a good metaphor for how directories work on web sites.

Directories allow you to arrange material in your web site by topic or some other organizing principle. The downside is that the farther a file resides from the top level of the site, the less likely it is to appear in search engine results.

2. A type of search engine in which sites are arranged by categories, accoring to the primary topic area cobvered by the web site. The Open Directory Project, www.dmoz.org , is an example of such a site.
