Cool People Search Engine II

After making my first post about a cool people search engine called Spock someone told me about Pipl. At their website they explain why their search engine is better than regular search engines if you are searching people:

"How come the best search engines fail so miserably when it comes to people search? The answer lies in a little known but very important part of the web called "the deep web".

Also known as "invisible web", the term "deep web" refers to a vast repository of underlying content, such as documents in online databases that general-purpose web crawlers cannot reach. The deep web content is estimated at 500 times that of the surface web, yet has remained mostly untapped due to the limitations of traditional search engines.
Since most personal profiles, public records and other people-related documents are stored in databases and not on static web pages, most of the higher-quality information about people is simply "invisible" to a regular search engine.".

Thank you for the enlightment! It worths a try and I managed to find my Facebook profile or myLinkedin profile among others using
