The long-rumored arrival of Dipsie’s “deep web” search technology, called Dcloak, finally happened today.

One of the favorite “coming soon” technologies has been the ability to search for web pages and documents that typical search engines do not retrieve. Dipsie founder Jason Wiener has been promising to deliver on this for about a year.

CNet’s Elinor Mills reported that the Dcloak beta would arrive online today, and it is indeed available.

Currently in beta, the service retrieves dynamically generated content that most search engines cannot index. “Dcloak service automatically crawls customer Web sites, analyzes the semantics to identify relevant concepts and keywords and helps optimize pages so they will be ranked higher in search engine results,” the report said.

Then, Dcloak makes these pages visible to search engines. Ideally, it will help with search engine ranking and building keyword-based advertising campaigns for sites using the service. While the beta version currently online is free, it will be a fee-based service starting in 2006. Retrieving 50 pages or less will cost $29.99 per month.

Even though this is being billed as a search engine, the technology sounds more like a landing page generator. It will be interesting to hear what users of the service think of it in coming months.
