The history of Directories and Search Engines

I came across an interesting web site that has some nice reviews about popular search engines and web directories. The article dates from April of 2004, but it is quite interesting non-the less as much of what is said about each, still pertains today.

I found it quite interesting how "Google's Directory" (DMOZ) was referred to over and over as just that, ie., "Google's Directory", when in fact it is DMOZ.

The only thing "Google" about it, is the fact hat Google appears to rank sites in the directory according to PR as a qualifier for popularity.
