Today, there is a great deal of information available in Web world and the only way to access them is through search relationships. Web crawler is an automated script that independently browses the web. Web crawler starts its task with a "seed URL" and then traces links available in each page. This encountered many available crawlers with essential difficulties. Identification of search intermediate and selection of a proper inquiry, on one hand, and retrieving documentaries returned by the web as the result, on the other hand, are issues that intensify challenges available for web crawlers. The aim of the present paper is to investigate available challenges and guidelines in the field of deep web and intensive crawling.
