    hi viewers, what is the difference between search engines and directories?
    A search engine is used to search for web sites.
    A directory is a list of web sites.

    One of them can be used to find the answer to many questions, can you guess which one it is? Hint, it has search in the name - thats a clue!

    Search engines are automated programs used to search on the web where as web directories are human edited and contain vast number of website organised different categories based on their Niche(business).

    what exactly you are looking for?
    A search engine is capable to produce fast and relevant search results in different forms like URLs, images, videos, maps, places etc. I have never seen a directory which can perform these things.

    If you have any question to ask, first analyze it and represent it in a manner that people can understand it
    better luck next time

    thanks
    take care
