International people search

Most of the people search engines available online today are basically for users from countries like USA, England and china. This restricts the search to very few countries. Therefore you cannot search a person from a country like Iraq or Chile. By using services like Google and other known people search engines, results are displayed only from the major countries.

Therefore keeping in mind that the internet is available to each and every corner of the world, service providers felt the need to provide with search engines which contains the searching of directories from all over the world. This is known as international people search. Imagine that few years back you went to a country for your education (e.g. to write or do a thesis on something) and you made few friends that you still remember. You now want to contact them and ask what they are doing now but you don’t know how to find them since you have misplaced their contact numbers and addresses. You sit and wonder about ways of finding them but this looks so impossible to you. What can you do now? Well you don’t have to worry because with the help of international people search engines, you can search person from anywhere in the world within seconds. You can do this by typing the name of the person whom you are looking for and then looking through the similar results. This service has gained some popularity in recent 3-4 years. Before this time it was never given any importance and there was no considerable work been done on it.

International search engine uses international websites and email services to search for people. These are normally not free and you have to pay a little amount in order to register. The fields required by such a site in order to find a particular person include:
* First name of the person
* Middle name of the person (this is not a mandatory field to be filled but will help to provide with best results if filled)
* Las name
* Country (this is the country where you want to find the particular person)
* City (this is the city where you think this person lives )
* Date Of Birth (this is the date of birth of the person you are looking for even though it is not a mandatory field but it can provide better results if filled in)

A popular site for searching people internationally is http://www.people-search.com
