The Invisible Web


The Visible Web is just the tip of the iceberg

The Invisible Web (also called Deep Web) is that part of the Web that cannot be crawled or indexed by traditional search engines. These pages may often link to searchable databases on websites that can only be generated if queried from within the site itself. Search engines typically do not search these databases, but you can search them manually if you know where to look.

ZED Digital is a search engine company with unique technology that aggregates content from databases that underlie public Internet or Intranet websites, aka the Invisible Web. Our CloserLook search® engine can be used to aggregate and unify data from multiple independent web-based databases into one single destination in real-time. Intelligent analysis and business logic can then be applied to this unified data to derive meaningful reports.
