Specialist Search Engines – To Find People

There are various reasons why you might need to search for people. You may need to find a lost

relative, an old flame, a classmate or a business contact. Using a search engine such asplace your ad
Google or Yahoo to search for people might work in some cases, but in most cases, it won’t.

How come the best search engines fail so miserably when it comes to people search? The answer

lies in a little known but very important part of the web called “the deep web”.

Also known as “invisible web”, the term “deep web” refers to a vast repository of underlying

content, such as documents in online databases that general-purpose web crawlers cannot reach.

The deep web content is estimated at 500 times that of the surface web, yet has remained

mostly untapped due to the limitations of traditional search engines.

Since most personal profiles, public records and other people-related documents are stored in

databases and not on static web pages, most of the higher-quality information about people is

simply “invisible” to a regular search engine.

So here we list Free and paid to search people search engines:

note: Some are totally free and some are free to search but you will have to pay for the records once you have found them.

Find Files/ Replace Files On Your Computer.

There are a few options to finding files on your own computer.
Depending on your operating system you may find the search capability that is already on your computer too cumbersome, slow or does not encompass all the files you are looking for; for instance email messages.

There are 3rd party applications that work extremely efficiently at finding the lost files on your computer.

Firstly there is the Google Desktop Search application that does an extremely good job. This utility is just like having a super search engine just for your own computer. The draw back is that a lot of people do not want to alow Google to index their files.

There are other standalone search utilities you can use like:

Download.com Review of Useful File Utilities:
A simple file manager for advanced users, Useful File Utilities picks up where the standard Windows Explorer leaves off. Its two-panel interface calls to mind the popular Norton Commander, but here you have the Basket, a clipboard for files. The suite’s main tools, Finder, Replacer, and Renamer, help you make quick work of file searching, text replacement, and bulk renaming across a range of file formats and attributes. Useful File Utilities even can change attributes, such as Hidden or Date of Creation for several files at once. This utility will appeal to file wranglers who have found the functionality of Windows Explorer insufficient for their needs.
