If you’re here, you’ve probably asked yourself questions like How to find the deep web and/or how to find deep web sites, did I get that right?
If I did, well, in that case, you’re exactly where you should be, considering the sole purpose of me scribbling this piece down is to help you find deep web sites with as much simplicity and step-by-step guidance as possible.
The reason finding deep web sites is so hard is because you can’t simply Google for them. Also, as quite a few of these are illegal, people do not publicly share their links on the clearnet.
And, when they do, the sites are mostly down because that’s another problem with the .onion links, they go down quite frequently. Worry not, I’ll help you find deep web sites in seconds!
But before that, let’s answer one basic question, “What are Deep Web Sites?” As, you clearly are new to the Deep Web, I believe this question may still lurk around, unanswered for you, isn’t that right?
Difference Between Clearnet and Deep Web Sites
I guess you’re already educated on what the Deep web is, it’s nothing more than a bunch of sites on the onion network in the simplest possible sentence.
Now here’s what separates these Deep web sites from the clearnet ones:
- Deep Web sites are generally with .onion extension, while clearnet sites will never have it.
- Deep Web sites can only be accessed with the help of an onion network browser, such as Tor; while clearnet sites can also be accessed with other general browsers such as Chrome and Internet Explorer.
- Deep Web sites aren’t always legal, but not all such sites are illegal either, while clearnet sites are mostly legal.
- Most Deep Web sites are uncensored and the govt. doesn’t hold any control over them, legal or otherwise, while the clearnet sites aren’t so independent.
- Clearnet sites have an understandable URL, such as Google.com; while only a part of Deep web sites are understandable, and the rest is random numbers and/or letters. E.g. our deep web site URL- http://deepweb2teloq5cl.onion/

How to Find Deep Web Sites?
So, how do you find working deep web sites? For starters, and if you’re short on time, you can simply check out our 31 Best and Most Popular, Working Tor Links which we published just this week.
And if that list doesn’t satisfy your cravings for the Deep web, here’s how to find deep web sites in detail.
1. Using the Uncensored Hidden Wiki
The Uncensored Hidden Wiki is one of the best places to start when you’re hunting for deep web site links.
It’s basically a link-directory, which holds a plethora of links for you to follow. The only problem is, not all of those links are working, but that’s more of a general deep web problem rather than a Hidden Wiki problem.
In the least, the links on Hidden Wiki have a “description” which makes it easy for you to know where you’re heading which isn’t always possible for links on the deep web.
Also, when it comes to actively “finding” sites for a certain need, the Hidden Wiki fulfils the purpose as it has categorized its sites neatly on a right-sidebar, as obviously you can’t simply ask the Internet for stuff such as “Best red rooms” or “drug store link”, can you?
The wiki also has a “search” option which helps you find sites in a certain industry or type if you want to.
2. Tor Links
After the Hidden Wiki, Tor Links is the second-best answer to your question- How to find deep web sites?
It’s basically the same thing as the Hidden Wiki, with just slightly better looks, and more working links than the Hidden Wiki.
It too has a description to help you navigate before you click on a link, and a top-bar where you can find different sections which may be of interest as well.
Now this is an unconventional but widely used answer to questions like How to find deep web sites.
Reddit is an user-based community where people come together, ask and answers questions, start debates etc; ah you get the picture.
Now, Reddit is widely active when it comes to the Deep web. You can access the (un)official Deep web subreddit using this link.
With over 50,000 readers to the sub-reddit, chances are most questions or links you’re digging for have already been asked and shared over there.
If not, you can simply start a new thread, and ask for it. Or, you can even comment on any active thread without starting one of your own, and the folks there should help you out.
Or, just use the “Reddit search” and type something like “Valhalla market link” and all the threads with those keywords would come up, hopefully with a link.
4. Deep Web Search Engines
Deep Web search Engines are Search engines which show and include deep web links in their results, .onion links specifically.
These work and function just like any other search engine, they just work on the Onion network mostly and need the Tor browser if you wish to use them.
5. Social Media
If the above listed mediums weren’t enough to answer all that you’ve been searching for, Social media can be a really fruitful solution to your problem.
Facebook groups and pages such as ours are great places to meet other fellow like-minded people and exchange information.
You can search Facebook / Google+ for “Deep Web”, “Tor Sites” etc. and join the groups or like the pages, as everyone else in the groups will also be interested in the same things as you, chances are they’ll happily exchange if you ask for it.
Let me just say, this is like the last straw, one you should avoid using completely unless you’re really desperate.
But, if you are, you still can find deep web site links here. Google doesn’t directly support the Tor network, or .onion links, but sites like ours have articles where they sometimes provide direct links to some popular deep web sites.
You can simply Google for terms like “Best Deep Web .onion links” / Deep web sites links, spend some time on the sites that come up and eventually you’ll find some links worth checking out.
Quora is one of the most popular question-answer websites on the planet. Well fortunately, it also can be used to find Deep Web links at times.
It may not be as helpful as THW or TorLinks, but it sure has hundreds of people asking the same questions – How can I get to the Dark web? And thousands of others replying to those answers with direct links to the Dark web.
Although note that all of those answers are user-generated hence they may not always be trustworthy and at times may lead you to scam and phishing websites, hence only use those links for “non-purchase” related sites, such as blogs, conspiracy sites, porn maybe, as long as money isn’t involved.
Simply go over to Quora and search for- “Dark web links“, or “Deep web links” or “what are some of the most popular Dark web links” and you should land at quite a few of them.
Things to Take Care of
I believe I’ve provided as many solutions regarding how to find deep web sites as I’m aware of, and trust me those are more than enough.
But, simply getting the “links” isn’t enough. Before accessing the Deep web, you need to make sure your identity is safe and can’t be intercepted considering how that part of the web can turn out to be a can of worms at times.
Once you get the VPN, even then, you need to be cautious before clicking any links you get from any sources, especially reddit or social media, as the links can’t be verified or aren’t legally monitored, spam and scam are abundant over there.
Is it illegal to Find Deep Web Sites?
As you’re here searching for how to find deep web sites, you may be asking yourselves, is it illegal to do so?
Nope, nah, nada. “Searching” for links, or even browsing them isn’t illegal in most scenarios, in most countries.
It may be simple research, or a curious mind, so feel free to stroll around the deep web as long as you do not “involve” yourself in any illegal activity.
Infact, there are quite a few positive sites on the deep web as well, such as anonymous, decentralized E-mail services, anonymous whistleblowing sites etc. which are completely legal to use and share.
So that’s a wrap folks, and I hope I helped you find deep web sites? If you still got questions, feel free to drop them on our Facebook Page or Group; I promise I’ll answer them.
If you do implement even the first two methods shared here, that’s the Hidden Wiki & Tor Links, I believe you’ll have more links than you can possibly browse in a month or so.
If and when you run out, the other options should come in handy. Either way, do let me know what you think about this piece on “how to find deep web sites” And the tips shared here so we can make this piece better.
