How Do People Search Websites Get You the Data

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

People who want to search other people or extract information on any person usually have their names, place of residence, or places they used to live before, by contact numbers, by family members, by age, by interests, by a criminal record and many more.

People who search for websites to get information fall into two types of categories.

1. Primary Search

Primary search is also called “Primary Site Search”. In the characteristics of primary search, it involves collecting information from public record sources or referring to people connected to the searched person. This kind of search is often more authentic and accurate rather than the secondary search. We can take an example of websites like Intelius, LexisNexis, PeopleFinders, etc.

2. Secondary Search

Secondary search is also called “Secondary Site Search”. In the characteristics of secondary search, it involves summoning the data gathered from primary site searches, online sources and social networks, gathering information automatically or through electronic means. This search is also known for inaccuracy in terms of authenticity. Examples for such searches are Pipl, Spokeo, Radaris, etc.

The initiation of data search mostly begins with the availability of public records. Some of them are listed below:

  • Marriage Certificates Or Licenses

You can search people if you have their marriage certificates or any information based on their marriage license.

  • Divorce Declarations

If you have any idea about a person’s divorce decree, this may also help you to get data regarding the person.

  • Any Unsealed Legal Actions

If any legal actions that are sealed from others but if you have particular information so this may also provide you with some results.

  • Birth Certificates

Birth certificates can also be a source to gather useful information about a person.

  • Death Certificates

If a person has died, and you have information based on death certificates so it can provide you useful information as well.

  • Register Statistics

Any information regarding census statistics can also help you to gather data.

  • Criminal Records

If the person has any kind of criminal records that you know of him/her and finding through this source can help you locate the following individual.

  • Voter Registrations

Voter register can help to locate the person as most of the people go for voting.

  • Drivers Licenses

Driving license or registrations helps you to identify a particular person you are in search of.

  • Social Or Political Contributions

Many people intend to involve in a social or political campaign and this activity may help people to collect information about a person through his social or political activity.

  • Business Licenses

A person who has a licensed business can also be searched through licenses.

Mostly, there are available public records that voluntarily provide you with information even though a person never knows that something can be used beyond the purpose for which information has been provided with. Some of them are listed below:

  • Surveys

Surveys also help you to find people when going through public records.

  • Online Account Profiles & Registrations

People who develop their accounts online or people who are registered on networks can be found publicly.

  • Public Forum Posts & Blogging

Many people can be located through the forum and their blogging activity.

  • Social Networks

Commonly, people are found on social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Provided with any of the search websites, there is a search box. This box gives you information for a person you are looking for from the concerned website. Each time you search, the search engine tells you in its own words what you are looking for.
