Last week I started the experiment with format and length. This week we will peek into the “deep web” where a regular search engine cannot go.
Slack might be the Searchable Log of All Communication and Knowledge but Slack communities are not being crawled and indexed by the big search engine companies (Google, Bing, etc). As a result, Slack communities are an example of the “deep web”.
Also, newsletters like this one you are reading can be easily indexed and searched because the author (Hi!👋) and the service permit indexing and searching. However, not all newsletters permit open indexing and open searching by instituting paywalls or requiring authentication to view which is also an example of the “deep web”.
