Your own FREE Yahoo!
Personal Open Directory (POD)
The script is named Personal Open Directory (POD) and was written by John M. Grohol.
NOTE: If you know what your doing you can open the site live and access the cgi bin and just drag the files in.
You can use the Search engine in conjunction with the Open Directory Project http://dmoz.org/
This will give you a head start with thousands of vetted URLs. The Directory can be downloaded to your own site and the format it works in is RDF (Resource Description Framework).
With this you can make a bespoke directory (see above) however you must comply with the License agreement and acknowledge the ODP on your site.
To set all this up you must design a template with a space left for the directory using tables is the best solution.
Did I mention this a FREE script! I highly recommend it!
