People Searches Surge Ahead

[ Search]

On Google’s weekly Zeitgeist list, at least five of the top ten gaining queries are usually people’s names.  The concept of an “ego search” has pretty much spread throughout our society.  And companies like Pipl and Spock have based their entire reputation and business on “people search.”  Yes, people search is a big deal.

Search Engine Watch’s Eric Enge noted that search engine giant Google thinks so; it hosted a People Search SIG earlier this month.  And a factoid on the Search SIG page also supports the idea: “30% of all searches on Google or Yahoo! are for specific people or people related,” the group states.

But the spotlight turned to Wink, Spock, and ZoomInfo on the night of the session, as Michael Tanne, Jaideep Singh, and Bryan Burdick (the CEOs of those respective companies) took the stage.

Furthermore, “[Y]ou can see that many companies are doing quite well with their people search strategies,” writes Enge.  “Most people are also familiar with Classmates and its leading competitor Reunion,” he continues, and we mustn’t forget Pipl, which won a strong standing in the 2007 SEOmoz Web 2.0 Awards.

People search is growing segment of the search market; don’t expect the rate of its expansion to slow down anytime soon.

    • Carmella Fitzpatrick

      I clicked onto this link in researching the very thing you are mentioning, but I can’t join anything right away, cus I have no money BUT if this is legitimate about work first then money then I can take that money to reinvest.

      It’s just I am so tired of the come ons that it works, to be bombed with e-mails I never read. Only because I found it takes Money I DON’T HAVE YET, and even if I was to save and budget for it…..HOW would I KNOW that it does not require money AFTER I saved for the first bite….What generally turns me off on first base is that I’m told I can make money first….and then I don’t.

      I have not signed up for this yet….but I’m curious if you can truthfully tell me…..if I can make money first…to reinvest?

    Dear, first to greet you all!

    I read a few of your comments on the course you have the right but whether the objective?

    Namely the difficult financial and economic situation that has affected large and developed countries gives us the knowledge that we need to do something yourself!

    In addition, climate change on the ground every day and are visible to the naked eye: Tornado, melting glacier
    fever, and because of the lack of moisture in the air comes from a great drought and fires are not what we observed even in the oldest human records, what to do?

    Lung countries (amount) has long suffer from kanceriznih tumors and urgently but really I think the urgent every state on the planet should start planting trees, to reduce the unforeseeable consequences of every man on the planet has to plant three trees in their immediate vicinity, and only to salvation for the human race and generation, as well as for all living creatures
    a recession can prevent the communion of all peoples from the east to the west and north to south …

    Thank you and regards

    At least Google’s dominance will be able to stop all the empty commissions promises and awful affiliate network sales people from flooding the world with their biz opp from Acme!

    I use Google, yes sometimes I look up names, but I wouldn’t want to use a search engine that ONLY looks up names though?

  • http://www.mypeopledirectory.biz/swarm.html HomeBizBloke

    HomeBizBloke Publishing & Marketing promotes 100’s of reliable affiliate programs. The most reliable of all is People Search. No advertizing or promotion, no BS , no expensive behind the scenes costs as all is part of the program. A $100k per year is absolutely possible without any real effort.

    And best of all I can tap into my own People Search and find millions of listed emails, phone numbers, addresses, photos etc all for building my LIST.

    You cant go wrong with People Search. Have you seen the Google Add ” Affiliate Programs Rock”. There is a reason its always number one on any people search in Google or Yahoo and thats because it is number one.
