In case you’re trying to find someone online, you need to know that there’s not only Google on the market. In the last two years, many sites have appeared out there that are better in people search. They offer names, phone numbers, locations, even places of work.
We’ve written this article to give you some sites which may come in handy when you’re looking for a certain person.
With this site, you can find a phone number and home addresses. You might be surprised to find out that you’re there – together with some contact info that you didn’t know it was there. But it will save you in case you need the phone number of a lost co-worker.
This one is even better than Google, as it also searched the deep web – also known as the invisible web. This one has info about all the people that use fake names on the internet on many pages, such as MySpace, press mentions and even Amazon. You can narrow your search if you just search for the city, state, and country.
The person you’re looking for has an account on MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn or Friendster. That’s good, but instead of searching each of these platforms individually, you can enter the full name or simply the screen name, interests or location, and Wink will help you find info about that certain person.
This one is the best one, especially if you’re looking for a job. This site puts all the people and company info in one place, and you’ll be able to find the perfect job for you. You’ll find lists of people and their past jobs and present ones (even if you’re looking for a job or not). Write the name of a person, and if there are multiple persons with the same name, then you can narrow your search by adding the geographic location. However, keep in mind that this one only works for people from USA and Canada.
Facebook is a great place to find people you’ve lost touch with. This site is not just for youngsters or students. You might even find your grandpa on Facebook, so you should give it a try.
Google is the most accessible search tool you can get. You can find a lot about a person just by searching his or her name. It has some techniques that can help you in narrowing the results in order to find that certain person you’re looking for.
Tips on how to search on Google
For starters, you need to put the name of the person between quotation marks when you type it in the box. After that, you can, as well, add some relevant pieces of information, like the employer, the profession, the city he or she lives in – even screen name can be helpful.
