Ok this is old but still annoying. The "dark web" is anything that doesn't show up on Google, it's a lot. ftp servers, tor services, gopher sites, bbs', dns, irc etc. It's not all terrorists yard sales and drugs you know :)

the way i've usually heard is that what you're describing is the "deep web", and that the "dark web" is specifically the things that require special software or hardware, such as tor, to access. i don't think anyone would describe, like, the dynamically created search page when you're looking for a fanny pack on amazon to be part of the 'dark web'.
