>> Return to article <<

Words in the left column were searched on June 15 in Google, Metacrawler, and Ixquick. For each search word, the first 10 hits were examined. The sites identified as directory sites are noted, preceded by their ranking. (Directory sites are easily identifiable from my work with the Hardin Meta Directory.)

Umbrella directory sites are in normal dark print; independent directory sites are in gray print (For definition of these terms, see article.)

The names of the sites retrieved is given in abbreviated form. Most of them appear on appropriate Hardin MD subject pages, and can be identified further by following the subject word link to these pages.
