Surface Web

The Surface Web (also called the Visible Web, Indexed Web, Indexable Web or Lightnet)[1] is the portion of the World Wide Web that is readily available to the general public and searchable with standard web search engines. It is the opposite of the deep web.[2]

According to one source, as of June 14, 2015, Google's index of the surface web contains about 14.5 billion pages.[3]
