Deep Web Research and Discovery Resources 2014

Bots, Blogs and News Aggregators (http://www.BotsBlogs.com/) is a keynote presentation that I have been delivering over the last several years, and much of my information comes from the extensive research that I have completed over this time into the "invisible" or what I like to call the "deep" web. The Deep Web covers in the vicinity of trillions upon trillions of 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 hundreds of billions of 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, ppt, .ps. and others. These files are predominately used by businesses to communicate 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 report 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 and Discovery Resources 2014 report and guide is divided into the following sections:

Articles, Papers, Forums, Audios and Videos
Cross Database Articles
Cross Database Search Services
Cross Database Search Tools
Peer to Peer, File Sharing, Grid/Matrix Search Engines
Presentations
Resources - Deep Web Research
Resources - Semantic Web Research
Bot and Intelligent Agent Research Resources and Sites
