The deep web is a world of commerce and social networks that don’t seem to be on Google’s radar.
And for years, the search giant has been focusing on selling its own products and services to these networks.
But with the launch of its latest product, the Chrome browser, Google has opened up the deep web to more mainstream merchants, advertisers and marketers who could use the new platform to reach a broader audience.
In the meantime, though, Google continues to be in a race with other search engines to be the most active in the deep net.
And now that Google has an audience on the deep Web, its competitors are starting to catch up.
“The deep web’s been a real game changer in the last few years, and Google has taken advantage of this,” said Dan Soderstrom, founder of the social network Facebook.
“They’ve built a platform that they want to be a part of, and that’s the deepweb.
It’s a very popular and well-known platform that people are very comfortable with, and they want it to be accessible to people.”
Facebook launched its deep web presence in 2015.
Today, it has more than 100 million users on its platform.
Google launched its search engine deep web product in 2013, but the search engine was not very well-received at the time, according to Soderquist.
“I think people were like, ‘Oh my god, you’re selling something that’s not available anywhere else,'” Soderberg said.
“We were like ‘well, we’re not going to sell anything we’re going to create our own search engine.’
So we made our own.”
The result is that Facebook has been able to get people interested in deep web commerce.
“What they have done is they have made it easy for people to go and look at things that they may have previously had a hard time finding,” said Soderblo.
Facebook is now the most visited deep web marketplace.
“It’s really amazing how much traffic we get on Facebook,” said Andrew Yee, cofounder of the online retail giant Amazon.
“People are really intrigued by it.”
The Google-Facebook relationship has been a boon for the two companies.
“This is the best of times and the worst of times,” said Yee.
“But I think the two sides have been able both to leverage this and to build a very strong relationship, and to continue to do it together.”
And in the past year, Google’s deep web search has expanded to include more than 10 million businesses.
Amazon has also seen an increase in traffic to its deep Web search, as well as other popular deep web sites.
Soderman said that “the deep web has gone from being very niche to being very mainstream.”
For its part, Google hasn’t stopped at the deep end of the deep-web market.
Last year, the company launched a tool that it calls the Chrome Marketplace, which lets consumers browse through a wide variety of products and sites in its Chrome browser.
Google also has a “Search Everywhere” feature that lets businesses search through the company’s own services.
“The deepweb is where most of the money goes,” said Alexei Kovalenko, a research analyst with Forrester.
“And we think that the Chrome marketplaces will continue to grow.”
