If you are tying to find some ones phone number, the Google People Finder search is a great place to start.  Go to the Google search bar and enter the persons full name in quotation marks.  If this person has entered their name and phone number on the web for any reason, Google will find it. Google can also help if you already have a phone number and need to find out who it belongs to.  This may be done using a technique that is known as “revere number lookup”.   Until November, 2010 Google actually had what was known as “phonebook operator”.  Phonebook operator made matching a phone number to a name extremely easy.  Unfortunately, Google closed down its phonebook operator feature due to a large volume of complaints.

Mostly these complaints came from people who found their own names and numbers in the index.  However, a reverse phone number lookup can still be performed if you know how to work it.  Enter the entire phone number, including the area code, into the Google search bar.  An example of this would be, 555-555-5555.  This will generate a list of numerous phone directories which that particular number is associated with.  Let’s say for instance you follow these steps and the search engine returns with 555-555-555, Groveton, TX phone directory.  You may be able to look up the phone directory for Groveton, Texas and find the name which matches the number.

Also, the name of the town may trigger a memory for you which allows you to reason who the number belongs to.  If you see Groveton, TX and remember that your mom had an uncle Bob there, then the number that has been showing up on your cell phone just may be that of uncle Bob’s.  If the number is associated with a business, the name of the business will most likely show up. Most businesses do not list their phone numbers as private.
