CatayzNet provides you with a list of sites of general interest for your company. The choice is totally arbitrary. These sites are classified as follows:

Search engines
Guides and indexes

This little choice of sites is far from complete. It will develop with time and according to the birth and death of sites of interest for SMEs.

Search engines

There are two kinds of search engines:
the search by categories enables you to find sites through the use of keywords (ie. area ofactivity). This type is the one to use first.
Textual search is more complete, because it looks for the word in all the pages of all the sites on the Web (!). The results are often discouraging because of the volume. An advice: use a textual search only if the category search failed or was not satisfactory.
