The Finder Module of Digimind allows you to directly access the invisible or deep web. It’s a very simple process. You enter your search term into the Digimind search bar and then choose to search in one of the Finder search engines. You will find these in the drop down menu of the search feature and you can recognize them by the D. For further details on how this works, please read this article.
Using our expertise, we have selected the major search engines that are available for each category of the invisible web: Academic, News, Blogs, etc. for more details please refer to the diagram below. Digimind will then bring back results from these areas of the internet.
Finder is a paid module so it may not be available on the versions of Digimind you are using. We can personalize the list of Finder search engines to meet your company’s requirements.
Dr Jill Ellsworth first used the term invisible web in 1994 to refer to the parts of the internet that are not indexed by traditional search engines (such as Google, Yahoo!, etc.). A good estimation is that over 90% of the documents and information held on the internet is invisible in this way. The reasons for this are numerous and include: pages that are too large to be indexed by search engines, password protected sites, sites that require a login or identification, and dynamically generated pages.
The real point is not though, how large the invisible web is, but rather that the information contained on this kind of page is usually of a higher quality and more interesting to competitive intelligence.
At Digimind we have created a number of powerful solutions and algorithms that allow our users to get much more out of the hidden information. You can get more information from our white paper on the invisible web.
