About the Web Guide

I began designing the Web Guide at the beginning of 2021. I've been keeping website URL's within my own personal database for years. I have thousands of them. I thought others might find some of the URL's useful.

As a result, I decided to create the Web Guide. As of 2022-04-01, just over 500 websites are listed. The Web Guide is mostly a project I do in my spare time. Little by little, as time allows, I add new websites.

The most accurate and quickest way to find a website is via the Category Boxes. However, all the websites are not listed via Category Boxes. The homepage of the Web Guide does list all the websites.

Nevertheless, the Category Boxes do show URL's the homepage of the Web Guide doesn't show. The Category Boxes have a category box for individual webpages and blog posts. For the most part, I didn't include either within the homepage of the Web Guide because of clutter. I didn't include them within the Horizontal View of the Web Guide because they create duplicate social media URL's.

In addition to the Category Boxes, individual webpages and blogs posts are viewable via the Traditional View and also searchable via the search feature, with all the other websites. Currently, there are very few blog posts and individual websites listed.

The search feature doesn't offer the same types of results and options found within larger search engines, however, if used properly, the results are decent.

The search works via keywords. If a question or sentence is typed into the search box, accurate results are less likely. If search specific keyword(s) are input, the chance of decent results are much more likely. The Web Guide does not use web crawlers to index keywords. All the keywords are input manually.

Some of the search results and category box pages are page ranked. There isn't a specific algorithm. For the most part, I ranked a few websites I liked with a higher page rank. Otherwise, most search results are sorted via title.

The Web Guide does offer features usually not found in larger search engines. Part of the thinking behind the Web Guide was to give users the option to sort through detailed website data quickly and easily. The Web Guide lists known social media accounts, blogs, message boards and employment pages found within websites.

For instance, if a user is looking for employment, the Web Guide offers users the option to sort websites via employment pages. Visit the URL's Detail Page. Scroll all the way to the right. Then, click Employment at the top of the Employment column. URL's become sorted via websites offering employment. Users can also sort website data via Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and message boards, among others.

To search for a specific domain name, type the domain name without the https://www. At the end of the domain name use a space instead of the period between the domain name and domain extension.

For example, to search for the domain: https://www.georgefarina.net, type the following in the search box:
GeorgeFarina Net
. To view the search results showing all the websites in the database, type
All Websites
in the search box.

All URL's are clickable. All URL's are https, regardless of whether the origin of the URL is https or http. Each individual URL / website listed also has a Details Page, viewable via the "View Details" link. The Details Page lists all the known data regarding each individual URL.

Eventually, I plan to move the Web Guide to either DustyLoft.com or to its own domain.

If you own or represent a website listed within the Web Guide and do not want your website listed, send me an e-mail and I will remove the website.
