It is a general directory, renowned for applying a high editorial discretion, founded in 2009 at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics by Pécsi András and Robert Gomboș (former DMOZ editor). It publishes listings by topic and by region when it makes sense. This directory also includes a blog featuring topic-based news and articles. This human-edited remained a good choice for information for today’s current users. It is noteworthy that many of the websites and blogs listed were added by staff members.

Like in the case of all few higher-quality web directories alive, you’ll have to pay a certain editorial fee which substitutes for the effort of one of their editors to visit your website, make sure everything is in order and then review your website accordingly and include it in the appropriate category.

The directory offers business owners the option of submitting an extra five deep links when signing up for an Express listing. Thumbnails are also used as a way to enhance listings. This directory allows for detailed and comprehensive postings including a business description, social media pages, and basic contact information with a business address and phone number.

The website looks great although it could use a revamp, is intuitive enough and easy to browse, even by people not so acquainted with how a web directory works. You can easily browse through the tens of available categories, choose the one most relevant to your website’s niche and add it at $59/year or $115/lifetime. A 300 word or 500 word review (based on the kind of listing you’re opting for) comes with the listing acceptance, however, not all businesses have a detailed review. The fee will be returned if a website is not accepted.

Business owners may add a rel=nofollow tag to their listing as well if they wish to. The directory doesn’t contain any ads or pop-ups and most of its resources are listed using the official name of the suggested or added business along with a neutral description.

Before you submit your website to Jasmine Directory, you should prepare it properly. Make sure your website’s description is pure neutral and objective under twenty-five words or less. When writing the description of your website, you should avoid using marketing or promotional language.
