Hi Smile!

Sure many may already know this, but there may be some who don’t. The internet actually has 2 sides.

  1. Visible Web which search engines can get at
  2. Invisible Web which search engines can’t get at

Some of us miss the second one entirely either because we choose to or because we do not know. The Invisible Web is largely academic archives, book libraries & databases. It can be reached by certain Deep Web search engines. The top ten search engines are listed in

http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/10-search-engines-explore-deep-invisible-web/ 

The above is a great link. However it makes one mistake. Invisible Web is not 550 times bigger than Visible Web. How much bigger or whether it is bigger is not proven yet.

There is also info on wikipedia in deep web. Even though updated recently it is wrong in saying that Invisible Web is 550 times bigger than Visible Web

Not to worry. Go to http://www.makeuseof.com & serch out the artucle called 

10 Search Engines to Explore the Deep End of the Invisible Web 

By Saikat Basu on Mar. 14th, 2010

 

It might be a temporary problem on that website. That’s the impression http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com gave me
