Diving Into the Deep Web

The term Deep Web (also called the Unseen Web and the Dark Web) refers to the hidden web content not listed by standard search engines. Some estimates are that the Deep Web is 500 times larger than the surface Web (the visible Web). Think of the surface web as the surface of the ocean-miles and miles of surface out there dark web links, as far as a person’s eye can see. But when you cast a net, it goes below the surface and captures things unseen to the eye.

Why is the Deep Web unseen? Because its hard-to-find web sites and search engines:

May have inadequate links to their content

Require users to register

Have spotty indexes to their content.
