Pipl – People Search

I searched with a specific email-id and here’s what I found: quick facts, personal profiles, contact details, email addresses, photos, blogs, websites, news stories, and even mentions in PDF documents.

Pipl is so good because its algorithm crawls the deep web, or (mostly dynamic) pages that no other pages link to. In any case, it’s scary that a search engine is able to collect and make sense of so much public information about someone.
