After reading the heading ‘Search Human Beings’, you at the first glance, might have forced yourself to think upon this heading. But the heading very well resembles what I want to convey you today.
Actually, I am talking of PIPL, a people search-engine, where you can search peoples, that may be your lost relative, an old flame, a classmate or a business contact.
Even wide-popular search engines Google and Yahoo also fails when comes ‘people search’ because these standard search-engines crawl Surface Web only, not Deep Web (where, most personal profiles, public records and other public-related documents are stored).
Deep Web Content is estimated at 500 times that of the surface web, and therefore, also known as Hidden Web or Invisible Web or Dark Web.
Pipl is different from other general search-engines in the way that the general ones need to crawl their own database only. Firstly, they need to crawl the web and enter the whole html pages in their own database. Then when user searches anything on the web, they need to fire a query to their own db and retrieve the corresponding results. This is not so simple and they have to take care of the fetching speed and various other factors. This should also be kept in mind that the results retrieved are useful for the user. But Human Search-Engine needs to get all the information through Member Directories, Profile Directories etc. They need to retrieve the data from them. They also work on same back-end technique but the source of data changes here. And user-friendliness is also a concern here.
Pipl allows you to search your any friend by entering his either
Phone: This feature is only available for United States and Canada.
See when I searched my friend’s name ‘Rahul Sharma’ on pipl.com
Don’t just take my word for it. Give it a demo for yourself.
And, also do let me know whether pipl has proved useful for you or not.
