Directories such as Yahoo! and About.com have real people who review and index their links. They also require web sites to adhere to rigid guidelines in order to be included in their indexes.As a result, directories' indexes tend to contain a comparatively small number of high-quality links.The factors that influence search engine rankings simply don't apply to directory rankings.Instead, directory editors look at the quality of a site: its functionality, content and design.
