For those people, who were not familiar with Google, Yahoo Directory is a big deal for them. In the olden days, it was one of the best place where people used to search for important things and discover more information. Today, none of us know whether a Yahoo Directory was still used by people.
Yahoo Directory is a human edited directory that is organized over various tiers, and nowadays the waves of interest have been reduced. In the early days of the internet, personally-curated process is an extra-ordinary thing and it stand among the inferior crawler based search engines. After 20 years of Yahoo.com, Yahoo Directory acts as an excellent centerpiece for its web portal and finally Yahoo has planned to shut down the service.
