Subject Listings or Directories

Subject oriented guides are usually hierarchically arranged subject trees which lead the user from broad subject categories to more specific listings. Such services differ from "search engines" in that they are compiled by humans versus automated systems designed to scan the web. As such, they are organized along subject lines suited to browsing rather than listings of "hits" from search engines queries. Most sites also allow the user to search within the site.
