Since Web services represent a fragment of the Deep Web, Web service interface descriptions reflect the content types available in the Deep Web. Therefore semantic annotations of these Web service interfaces, after using them to link services to services networks, allow analysis of the structure of the Deep Web. In this work, we investigate information diffusion, as one of highlighted Deep Web research directions, among networks of Web services. We present a model for analyzing information diffusion between both individual service providers and entire service industries. The proposed model is evaluated based on set of public Web services interface description harvested from public registries. The model indicates high potential of the proposed method in understanding the hidden structure of the Deep Web and interactions between individual service providers or service industries.
