Alleba consisted of a search engine and a web directory. In 2004, the The Alleba Filipino Directory becomes the Philippine part of the WWW Virtual Library [kd].

»History
Alleba Filipino Search Engine was the result of a dream of building a web directory and search engine for Filipino-created/related websites. Alleba’s humble beginnings go all the way back in July of year 2001, in an apartment on 6th Avenue (Avenue of the Americas) in Manhattan, New York. Brandishing a brand-new Dell Inspiron laptop (it was considered at the peak of technology back then), I built a barebones web directory and baptized it using my mother’s maiden name (Abella), only backwards (Alleba). It’s pronounced (a-’yeh-bah) or (al-’yeh-bah).

Alleba gives Filipino-made sites a good chance of being seen and viewed by practically everyone in the world, via our popular Filipino Directory. Moreover, virtually unknown sites get better odds of being crawled by larger search engines (Google, MSN) just by listing with us.« Source

Wikipedia: »Alleba is a Philippine search engine. It was created in 2001 by Filipino web designer Andrew dela Serna. Alleba started as a project to index the best Filipino websites in a directory format and is one of the first local directories behind those such as Yehey and Tanikalang Ginto.« Source

»As on June 19, 2012 the search engine seems no longer being maintained, any search entry will end up with a database error.« Source
