Pipl, a people search engine

Finding people is a frequent and often frustrating task, if you’re using Google.  Pipl says  the reason for that is that Google’s spiders don’t crawl the Invisible web (special databases) where much of the people information lives. 

What makes Pipl unique?  Here’s what the site has to say about itself.

“Pipl’s query-engine helps you find deep web pages that cannot be found on regular search engines.Unlike a typical search-engine, Pipl is designed to retrieve information in real-time from the deep web, our robots are set to interact with searchable databases and extract facts, contact details and other relevant information from personal profiles, member directories, scientific publications, court records and numerous other deep-web sources.Pipl is not just about finding more results; we are using advanced language-analysis and ranking algorithms to bring you the most relevant bits of information about a person in a single, easy-to-read results page.”
