The iPage Community Directory
Finding sites hosted by iPage is made easier by the iPage community directory. You can go directly there through this link: http://www.ipage.com/directory/. In that page, you have the option whether to enter the site’s name in the search bar and click search; or browse from among the different categories of the site including: Arts, Computers & Internet, Gifts & Shopping, Miscellaneous, Services, Blogs & Personal Sites, Education, Government, Recreation & Sports, Society, Business, Entertainment & Media, Health, and Science.
Each category has subcategories for better searching. The search results will be displayed below as “Listings” which will display the site’s names and a short summary of what the site is all about. New iPage hosted sites are also featured as “Recent Listings”. You don’t have to be an account owner to use this directory.

Aside from the fact that it is displayed in one of the most visited sites by webmasters, having your site in the iPage community directory actually improves your site’s search engine optimization (SEO).
