Web Catalogues

Web catalogues contain a collection of linked internet addresses which are mostly sorted according to specific criteria e.g. by industry. They help users search for information in a more targeted way. Before the emergence of search engines, web catalogues were the only way to search for a website on the internet. From a search engine optimization point of view, an entry in a web catalogue can be very useful since it makes it easier to find your website as well as creating an additional backlink.
