If you’re a regular Spokeo user, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve added some new bells and whistles to help you with your search needs — additional search filters to narrow down results!
Users can now filter with:
- First Name
- Middle Initial / Name
- Last Name
- Age Range
- Street, City, State
- Relative’s First and/or Last Name
How is this helpful?
As often is the case, let’s say you search a name that renders a lot of results…say you search for “John Smith.” There are a lot of people named John Smith in the United States. Our search results return more than 180,000.
- Knowing a middle initial, can help you slim down results
- General age range can also help you find exactly who you’re looking for a little more quickly
As a real example, let’s look for someone named “John Smith”:
We get more than 180,000 results!
Now, let’s say we don’t know his age or location, but we do know his wife’s name is “Magnolia.” We can click the “SHOW ALL FILTERS” link and enter “Magnolia” for “Relative’s First Name.”
Now, we get 10 results in the entire USA! Much easier to browse through these and figure out which one I’m looking for. Powerful stuff.
