Search for People

If you would like to search for people online, you can do it here. It is totally free to search.

Making Money with People Search

How hard do you think that it is to put your own people search engine out there for people to use? It's pretty difficult, isn't it? This isn't plain old HTML. This needs to have a complicated back end that can interface with the various databases and be able to search by specific items like email, social security number, name, and telephone number. I guess that inventing your own is out for most people.

Would you be surprised if I could point you toward one where you can brand your own people search engine and have many different profitable tie ins alongside the actual people search mechanism? There was once an unemployed Washington, D.C. man (he's obviously self employed now) who discovered the popularity of this type of search and decided to fill the niche. It worked so well for him that he became a millionaire with it. Later on he discovered that he could allow people to re brand his search engine and make profits with it, on a smaller scale than him, but still averaging in the hundreds to thousands of dollars monthly. He does this because he earns so much from those tie in sales of products and services that I mentioned, that the companies which provide the commissions give him a smaller commission on YOUR sales, thus increasing his overall profit. Pretty smart guy, huh?

There is also proof of the earning potential which is provided, so that you do not have to simply take all of this on faith alone.

Why would you search for someone online?

People search for lost relatives. I know that this one is true because I have found myself searching for a long lost female cousin of mine from time to time. I haven't found her yet. I used to get along with her really well when we were kids and early teens. Then that branch of the family moved down south and except for some letters I never heard directly from her again. I know a bit about how her life went from some other relatives, but at this time no one knows exactly where she is. Anyway, people search for lost relatives this way. It could be an adopted child searching for their biological parents, the biological parents searching for that child they had to give up, or perhaps siblings who were separated when young. There are probably many more types of lost relative searches.

People search for past love interests and old partners. Sometimes people search for old flames, ex lovers, or maybe to check up on divorced or separated spouses.
People search for old friends and comrades. Yes, people do searches for that old high school or college friend. Perhaps a reunion is coming up and they want to touch base or see if that person plans to attend. Maybe they are on the planning committee and need to hunt down people from that graduated class year in order to send out invitations. They might be looking for donations to the alumni fund.

People do background checks. Perhaps a careful lady is going to date someone and wants to make sure that in this age of creative theft that the other person is who they say that they are. Maybe an employer has an internal person who does their background checks instead of dealing with an outside agency. Today the Internet has turned many old regime paid services into "self service" jobs.

So, there you have it. I just outlined several reasons that people search out other people online. There are probably many many other good reasons why they do this, and these combined reasons would explain the intense popularity of online people search.

The bottom line in all of this is that
people search is huge and growing by leaps and bounds.
