30% of All Internet Searches Globally Are To Find People

Searches for people are best found using the Deep Web.

An inexperienced people searcher will use 411.com/ca or equivalent directory and do their search to find people there. If the person they are looking for has been at the same address for some time, they could find a name, address and usually a phone number - depending on whether it is listed or unlisted.

If they fail to find the person they are looking for there they will either find a similar search site or turn to the Search Engines we all use, like Google, Yahoo, Bing and so on. Searches from these sources may return some information but generally they are not quality sources of information.

This is due to the fact they are only calibrated to do static searches or searches of web pages that have been posted or submitted to the Search Engines for listing. This type of search is referred to as a Surface Search.

There is another part of the Internet that many of us are not aware of or use.

What is the Deep Web? Wikipedia has in depth particulars, but briefly this part of the Internet is made up of data bases, personal profiles, public records and other like-related information. They also refer to the Deep Web as "deepnet", "the invisible web", or "hidden web". There is also the "dark web" which is referred to separately but is another part of the Deep Web as well. It was estimated back in 2000 that the Deep Web has 500 times more information then the Surface Internet section we are all familiar with. The Deep Web is also thought to be the fastest growing section of the Internet.

This Deep Web is an excellent source to extract personal information from member directories, person profiles, court records, scientific publications, airplane flights, stock quotations and such like data bases. Once where a large body of staff and long passages of time were required to process and input information to records it now can be done in a day or so by one person using software and the Internet. That is the allure for companies to inadvertently post to the Deep Web. Much of the information here is stored in different formats like non-textural file formats such as flash and streaming media that are generally inaccessible to search engine indexes. It is accessed by a "Federated" search, which is unlike the regular search engines we use daily. This type of search drills down into data bases using queries.

95% of this information is publicly accessible information - not subject to fees or subscriptions. However, when you do a search quite often there is a fee attached for services rendered. The fee is for offsetting the cost of obtaining the search. It depends how the search is preformed. The information can be based on the name of a person, a phone number, an e-mail address, an old address and so on.

So how does all this information relate to you?

Firstly, know that you are no longer incognito or invisible to the public eye. Any public record that you are listed on, any school record, actually any kind of affiliation or association with any company, government, associations, land purchases and sales, medical records, etc., will generally find it's way to the invisible web through these data bases.

Never before in all of mankind's history has so much information been known, recorded, and available about each and every one of us. Future generations will have information about their forefathers never before envisioned. Our individual medical history will be available for grand babies generations behind us. What a marvellous heritage we are leaving for others.

So, if you happen to need or want to find people; you can find an old co-worker, find lost family, find friends or even a previous sweetheart.
