How many government websites are there?

Still No Directory of Federal Websites, E-Gov Act Ignored.   By Coby Logen, .gov Watch. November 05. 2007

How many government websites are there? How many HHS or DOJ sites are there? You and I have no way to know. American taxpayers cannot even know how many public websites their government is funding. By law, we should—but the system is broken.

The E-Government Act of 2002 set a deadline of two years to develop a "public domain directory of public Federal Government websites" (Section 207(f)(3)). But this directory still does not exist 5 years later.
