Best of the web is an online portal featuring web directors. Established in the year 1994, BOTW is one of the oldest web directories that claim to give a comprehensive list of websites. The directory has different categories to segregate the websites in order of the services they provide.
BOTW has a simple design that looks well. The mild blue color and the graphics used complements the white background color of the pages.
The main page of the website looks like any other web directory - the center of the website is featuring the top main categories. If somebody has any problem regarding the search content, there is a quick search box right at the top right hand side.
Visitors can advertise their websites (this is a category sponsorship, not a regular listing) by clicking on the advertising option. This option will land on a separate page that speaks about the thirty day free sponsorship program and other such programs that can help one to get advertised on this website. The users can read testimonials of other users who have used this site to advertise.
There are two other options on the top side of the website. While the first one is regarding how to submit websites to this site and shows the procedure to do so, the other one gives the users an option to log in their respective accounts and edit their contents, links and other materials. New members can also sign up with the website free of cost and this will take only a few minutes.
BOTW has also a regional section. So if you want to search for say, cooking class in Jordan, you need to type the name of the region and the service you want and that's it! The site is therefore very easy to operate and has ample spaces between the contents so that easy navigation is possible.
