The Deep Web: Searching the Invisible Web & Finding Hidden Web Sites

The terms invisible web, hidden web, and deep web all refer to the same thing: a massive storehouse of online data that regular search engines don't capture. That's because terabytes of information are buried in databases and other research resources. Searchable and accessible online but often ignored by conventional search engines, these resources exist by the thousands. Known in research circles as the deep web, invisible web, or hidden web, this buried content is an estimated 500 times larger than the surface Web, which is estimated at over eight billion pages. This mass of information represents a potent research resource, no matter what your discipline or interest. Find out below how to search the deep web and find hidden websites, and try out some deep web search engines to help you access invisible web information. Students and serious researchers may also find our collections of web directories and scholarly and academic research tools and strategies useful.
