The Beesker website was launched in January 2007 as the world's first directory of 'Best on Topic' websites.

For each of hundreds of topics, we select the world's best English language website. Selection is based on an assessment of depth and reliability of content, and clarity of presentation. Some of the websites which we select as the world's best are produced by leading institutions and publishers, such as the BBC, British Museum, National Geographic, New York Times, and Smithsonian Institution. But reflecting the democratic nature of the internet, many of the websites we select are the work not of large organizations, but of specialist associations or individuals who are passionate about their subject. We congratulate them all. 

Selection is an editorial decision based on merit. Beesker is financed only by Google Adsense advertisements; no payment is accepted from the selected websites.


Beesker is published by Extonet Ltd, of Cambridge, England. The editor of Beesker is Dr. Alex Reid.
