Press Release: 7th December 2009
Our Directory is in the process of being reviewed, the major changes being to the keyword and discriptions of each category of the directory to enhance its visability on the major search engines. This with other avenues to promote the directory we are hoping to double the hits and urls listed by the end of the 2nd year of operation.
Caboose Open Directory has been online for 18 months, In that time the site has come to rank on the first page of Google using the search terms "Free Open Directory".
Our Directory is run by a human, that's me, Geoff Merritt. I review each web page submitted to make sure it fits with in the directory's guidelines.
Why is the directory free? I am a firm believer in open source software, and believe that should I use open source software I to should put back into the comnunity by offering a Free Open Directory. In fact all software used on my server to bring my directory to your screen is open source.
