Today’s Tip: Dig Deep

By deep, I mean the deep or invisible web.  According to Marcus Zillman, there are somewhere in the vicinity of 1 trillion plus pages of information out there on the world wide web that search engines might not see.

Marcus was kind enough to update his annual article at LLRX.com, Deep Web Research 2012.

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”.

Though there are some familiar sites in this excellent resources list, Google Scholar for example, there are many sites, vendors and sources of information that may be new to you.

One new to me was the Open Knowledge Foundation.  Visit their projects page to have a look.
