HRWEBDIR.ORG - Evaluating Quality Sites on the Web

Human Ranked Directory Project
A Human Evaluated Ranking Project of the Web


Submit your Site for Inclusion

Started in March 2006, We are a small community of persons inspired by work of DMOZ (Open Directory Project) came up with inspiring idea of ranking and classifying web resources by real humans without entirely depending on search engine ranking and their other search based algorithms. Our ranking of sites is solely done by humans and independent of any search based algorithms. We look forward in maintaining our directory as a non profit one, where good resource sites are added free of charge.

With the World wide web has grown to a level where the search engines and directories superflous with huge spams, it has been increasingly difficult to find and isolate good resource sites quickly and easily. We believe that not only that our project will help search engines to reduce spams but also more beneficial to web users in finding such resources sites. We constantly are looking for the sites which are very informative, content rich with quality resources. We will add our site to our directory free of charge provided sites are submitted according to our guidelines.

Please understand that we are small community of persons and our resources are very limited. So while submitting your sites, please follow the given guidelines.
