Aviva directory is a searchable web directory that lists quality web sites. One time fee for a relevant and permanent listing.
Aviva Directory was always intended to be more than just another web directory, and since that day, in February of 2005, when the directory was launched, it has continued to grow, to improve, and to adapt to a changing Internet. Created by Jeff Behrendt, and owned by Behrendt Professional Corporation, Aviva Directory has remained relevant to a new generation of Internet users, providing a highly selective, human edited directory of the Internet’s best websites, arranging them in such a manner that its users can find what they are looking for quickly and easily, without the spam that is so prevalent elsewhere.
Aviva Directory is a general web directory that organizes listed websites by topic and, when appropriate, by region.
Our top-level categories include Arts & Literature, Business & Industry, Computers & Internet, Faith
& Spirituality, Health & Well-Being, History & Genealogy, Local & Global, People & Daily Life, Politics & Government, Reference & News, Science & Technology, Shopping & eCommerce, Sports & Recreation, and Travel & Tourism.
At Aviva Directory, we also feature a separate blog directory, structured as a subdomain, and arran
ged much the same as the general web directory, featuring active blogs on a variety of topics. Our top-level blog categories are Arts & Literature, Business & Industry, Computers & Computing, Faith & Spirituality, Health & Well-Being, History & Genealogy, Internet & Online, Local & Global, People & Daily Life, Politics & Government, Reference & News, Science & Technology, Sports & Recreation, and Travel & Tourism.
While many of the websites and blogs that are included in the directory are added by directory staff, site owners may also pay to have their website reviewed for inclusion in the directory, with options for permanent or annual placement. The fees paid are for the time and effort required by directory staff to do an evaluation of the suggested site, and to make any changes that might be necessary in suggested titles, descriptions or category placement, so fees are not refundable, and only sites that meet the standards of the directory are included in its listings. Currently, along with the same fee-based options that are in place in the main directory, there is an option for free submissions to the Aviva Blog Directory.
In an active, growing web directory such as Aviva Directory, there is always work to be done, and that requires both people and time. Aviva Directory employs professional editors who regularly seek out valuable web resources to add to the directory, as well as maintaining those that are already in the directory, periodically checking to ensure that they are still in working order and that the content of listed sites is appropriate for the categories they are listed in.
Submitted sites are not automatically accepted into the directory, either. Every time a new site is submitted to Aviva Directory, an editor will visit the site, to make sure that it is appropriate for the directory, and for the category that it is submitted to. We endeavor to maintain a high standard of quality, and to apply it to every site that is listed in our directory, so not every submitted site is accepted.
Site titles and descriptions are evaluated, and often reevaluated as we browse through the directory’s categories and subcategories daily. We look for such things as spelling or grammatical errors, correcting those that we encounter. At Aviva Directory, we believe that site descriptions should be informative, as this provides a better resource for our users and better value for those whose sites are listed with us.
