Yahoo searches Deep Web

This would be a major in the search engine wars. What is currently available online is estimated to be not more than about 10-20% of the real content. The rest of the web lies be the so-called Deep Web, sites, protected by passwords or those requiring subscriptions.

Yahoo now launched a beta of Yahoo Search Subscriptions - it will currently be launched only in the US and the UK. The caveat? Users still need to have access rights. This means, you still need to subscribe to the site - well, otherwise, companies like Lexis-Nexis would go out of business. The biggest advantage thus would be that you have one website to start with - Yahoo. And that you don't need to go to each site in order to log in to your subscription. Nevertheless, those without subscriptions are still stuck outside the Deep Web.
