search with these keywords and came up with some good directories. Or you can use "allinurl:webdirectory" also. The command "allintitle:webdirectory" shows those sites which have
"webdirectory" word in the site title. Similarly the command

"internetdirectory" or any other keyword of your choice.

such forum you will find some threads discussing directory sub-
missions. Follow such threads ? dig deeper if needed! You will
