Hi -


Further to the 'Dark Web' thread.




A few years ago, it was not uncommon to hear search people talk about The
Dark Web (also known as Dark Net or  the Deep Web).  Basically, the Dark Web
is made up pages or files that are unreachable by search engines.  Examples
of this sort of content include information that sits behind login, or pages
without inbound links.  Some estimates put the Dark Web at about 400 times
the size of the Surface Web (content indexed by search engines).
