Chapter 21. Finding Stuff Online > Searching for People and Businesses

Searching for People and Businesses

As good as Google and other search sites are for finding specific web pages, they're not always that great for finding people. (Although, to be fair, Google is getting much better at this.) When there's a person (or an address or a phone number) you want to find, you need to use a site that specializes in people searches.

People listings on the web go by the common name of white pages directories, the same as traditional white pages phone books. These directories typically enable you to enter all or part of a person's name and then search for his address and phone number. Many of these sites also let you search for personal email addresses and business addresses and phone numbers.
