WhitePages.com has launched a new people search application that will allow users to find information they need on a specific individual. The search will now include Web results from providers and an email database of verified addresses.
The new service will collect phone numbers, home and email addresses and other forms of Web content. The service is designed to narrow the results that users are looking for. Other search engines may provide information that is too broad, which can make it difficult to find specific results.
"Anyone who has ever tried using a conventional search engine to locate a specific person knows that People Search presents some unique challenges," said Matt Booth, Kelsey Group senior vice president and program director, Interactive Local Media. "By integrating third-party content into its proprietary search results for Power Web Search, WhitePages.com is in a position to provide an enhanced, highly relevant, People Search user experience."
