Find Who You Are Looking For in Reverse


Visitors: 200

There is more than one way to locate an old friend today. Your chances of finding someone that you miss are much higher thanks to the Internet. There are so many easy ways to locate someone that you knew in the past now that you can go online, and there are a few different ways that you can search them out. You can search by name, as is traditionally done, or you can search by phone number as well.

Your search should always begin with someone's name, of course. Start with the most obvious source that you use to find pretty much everything thing else online. Use search engines like Yahoo and Ask to see what comes up when you search their name. For more accurate listings, put the full name in between quotation marks. That tells the search to give you only results containing the first and last name together within the text of a web site.

You can also take that name to the social networks like FaceBook and MySpace to search for that person. They may have a profile up through which you can contact them and see what they have been up to in recent years. You may also find them through sites like LinkedIn or Orkut, which are professional networks. These are essentially used for business connections, but you can find people that way.

When you are having a hard time with a name, you have another tool of which you may have never thought to use. If you have an old phone number for that person, you may find a link to them through that number. You may find that they still use it. If it is really old, it is probably a landline. When that is the case, use the reverse search you can find through the online residential phone listings to see what comes up.

You may have to find a person by phone number through an entirely different type of site. You can find a reverse phone lookup that can give you information on hard to trace landlines as well as mobile numbers. You can find some vague but free information through these, and you can pay a fee for more details if you wish.
