Okay, it’s not a literal search engine but it’s very useful. You see, every time you do a search query on a dark web search engine you are bound to see 20 spam links, then maybe 1 legitimate. This can make the research process tedious.

However, this Wiki helps solve this problem by providing a list of website directories on the dark web for you to access easily. A surface web version is also available.

Other websites that offer similar content include TorLinks and Onion Links. You can visit The Hidden Wiki by following its link .Onion here.

Claiming to have indexed over 1.5 billion pages comprising over 260,000 websites, Haystak would indeed stand out as an ingenious engine among the list.

It also has a paid version which offers a number of additional features such as searching using regular expressions, browsing to now-defunct Onion sites, and accessing their API.

This too is one of those search engines that last quite a long time (since 1996) but the search results are not impressive. In the above query, I wanted to know the URL of the Facebook onion, a very simple piece of information. Still, he reported everything except that, showing how far these search engines need to go to improve.

On the other hand, it is fast and can still be useful. Nonetheless, you can visit Torch by following its link .Onion here.

A longtime enemy of Google, you are bound to find it on almost any search engine listing on the dark web. Still, it brings in more surface web search results than the dark web, and so the only good point we have left is the anonymity it offers. In fact, I was unable to find 1 search result on the dark web thanks to a few random queries.

You can visit DuckDuckGo by visiting its .Onion link here.

To conclude, we hope this list will help you use TOR browser more efficiently. Just be careful to avoid browsing illegal websites as this can get you in trouble with moral choice of course.
