Find Israeli Friends' Information
Using a person's name to search for him or her in Google can bring up several web pages related to the person:
- A listing of a Facebook page can appear with a 'timeline page' showing and introduction section which includes past and present occupations and former educational institutions attended. There's a section of photographs that have been uploaded by the user. The next section lists friends with images of them and links to their Facebook pages. If the page is written in Hebrew, right click on the page away from any link and select 'Translate to English'. Apparently users of social networks can authorize or offer (share) their favorite
books, events, likes, movies, music, questions, reviews, sports and tv shows. Messenger is a feature that allows messaging the person.
- One particular search returned a web page advertising a room for rent with photos of the venue and particulars about the space: price, non-smoking, size, location and nearby attractions.
- The Free Dictionary offered a definition of the name but that was inaccurate and only defined a word that was similar in spelling.
- A page in Wikipedia would appear in the search results if a page exists for the person in question - also no charge.
- There was a link to Pinterest where the subject had posted many pictures of things of interest including Tumbler photos, tattoos, nail sculptures, fashion and wish lists, completely free.
- Scrolling further down the list of Google SERPs (search-engine results pages) there are examples of available pics with a link leading to pages of images that may be related to the person's name. (Imaging, facial recognition and search efficiency are improving but current results are still very broad, bringing up many 'close matches' that can be irrelevant.)
- If the person performs in a band, a play, a sporting event or any activity that may have a presence on the Internet, related articles, webpages and images may appear.
- Heaven forbid but if the person is deceased, an obituary might show if the reporting agency published the information on its Internet site.
- Conspicuously absent from search results are records of property ownership when searching by name, even when using the name in the format known in the record, even after entering the exact address as it exists in the public record. To locate property ownership it's necessary to know the taxing authority, go to that website and perform a property search.
- Also blatantly absent are mentions of arrest records, parol information, past incarcerations and any references to watch lists. In communities this is essential information (for the safety of us and our children) and it is totally unavailable in general search-engine inquiries using peoples' names.
Using Google search lookup, entering just the first and last name of a person may bring up too many listings to peruse. The number of matches can be reduced by enter the first and last in quotes, like "first last".
Search results will be more specific (and run the risk of eliminating the person sought from search results) by adding a middle initial or a middle name without quotes then with quotes.
If the person is a business owner or an employee of a business, peoplesearch sites that might have information about the person include Merchants Circle, LinkedIn, Buzzfile and Lohud as well as government agencies if the person is a federal, state or local worker.
Other sites listing proprietors are Google Maps, Bing Maps, Clustrmaps, Yelp and Yellowbook.
Family history sites can appear like funeral homes, obituary sites, newspapers, ancestry.com, legacy.com and researchgate.
