You probably use Google and one or two other search engines on a daily basic, but do you know about Pipl?
Welcome to the Deep Web
When you use the more popular search engines, they give you the most frequent and common results, but, sometimes, often in fact, there's other information out there, but it doesn't pop up unless you dig deeper. That's what Pipl is about. They dig deeper.
I must confess I'm conflicted about the continuing invasion of privacy afforded by the Internet. Of course, sometimes it helps to be able to check out a young man who seemed to take an unhealthy interest in my daughter. Yes, I'm paranoid, but like a cop who dealt with child rape once told me, there's no such thing as too paranoid. Scary world.
Reasons To Search
There are other reasons you might want to use Pipl. Maybe you're looking for a relative with whom you've lost touch. Or a former business contact. The deep web, sometimes called the invisible web, refers to a vast repository of underlying content, such as documents in online databases. The usual web crawlers can't reach them. Deep web content is estimated at 500 times that of the surface web, but it's mostly untapped due to the limitations of traditional search engines.
Pipl searches and finds online store profiles, member directories, publications and lots more. Results can be obscure, but they could be what you need.
Online research can be even more fascinating than you thought.
