Features - Deep Web Research 2005


Marcus P. Zillman, M.S., A.M.H.A., is Executive Director of the Virtual Private Library and Founder/Creator of BotSpot®. He is the author of nine different Internet MiniGuides 2005, Internet Sources Manual and eCurrent Awareness Resources 2005 Report. His Subject Tracer™ Information Blogs (41 and constantly growing) are freely available from the Virtual Private Library, which include the latest resources on Deep Web Research and Bot Research. His current white papers on searching and researching the Internet are located at WhitePapers.us. His personal blog dedicated to knowledge discovery, knowledge harvesting, information retrieval and Internet current awareness is available at Zillman.us. His monthly free newsletter is titled AwarenessWatch™ and his monthly Internet Zillman Column has been archived since 1996.



Bots, Blogs and News Aggregators is a keynote presentation that I have been delivering over the last year, and much of my information comes from the extensive research that I have completed over the years into the “invisible” or what I like to call the “deep” web. The Deep Web covers somewhere in the vicinity of 600 billion pages of information located through the world wide web in various files and formats that the current search engines on the Internet either cannot find or have difficulty accessing. The current search engines find about 8 billion pages at the present time of this writing.

In the last several years, some of the more comprehensive search engines have written algorithms to search the deeper portions of the world wide web by attempting to find files such as .pdf, .doc, .xls, and .ppt . These files are predominately used by businesses to communicate their information within their organization or to disseminate information to the external world from their organization. Searching for this information using deeper search techniques and the latest algorithms allows researchers to obtain a vast amount of corporate information that was previously unavailable or inaccessible. Research has also shown that even deeper information can be obtained from these files by searching and accessing the “properties” information on these files! This is interesting research that was written and posted in my personal blog a few months ago.

This article and guide is designed to give you the resources you need to better understand the history of the deep web research, as well as various classified resources that allow you to search through the currently available web to find those key sources of information nuggets only found by understanding how to search the “deep web”.

This Deep Web Research 2005 article is divided into the following sections:

As I mentioned in the beginning of this article/guide, my current keynote presentation of Bots, Blogs and News Aggregators was created from these various resources along with my resources for Bot Research. Identifying competent and usable resources from the deep web, as well as identifying competent and usable tools to search the deep web is of extreme importance and the following resources for Bot Research will start you on your discovery of knowledge for deep web research:
