The Deep Web. You may have heard of it, but few have visited it. This dark corner of the internet plays a lot bigger role than most people attribute to it.
Contrary to popular belief, main search engines like Google, Yahoo,Bing are not showing us everything that is available on the internet. In fact, for every web page these search engines find, they miss around 5,000 of them.
Even though most internet searches come from the legal portion of the internet, the Deep Web still has a big user base. Legal authorities are constantly monitoring and looking for ways to shut down illegal transactions and services that happen on the Deep Web, but the never-ending expanding nature of the internet gives them a lot of trouble.
