Transcript:What Is Zabasearch?

Hi I'm Nick and today for About.com I'm going to teach you some facts about Zabasearch.com, using information provided by Wendy Boswell, an About.com guide at WebSearch.About.com.

What Is Zabasearch?

Zabasearch is an online tool that allows you to search for information related to individual people. If you're looking for someone in the U.S., Zabasearch could help. All you need to do is enter some information into the spaces provided. If you're searching for a person, type their name into the name box and add a location if known. Zabasearch will retrieve all information related to that name and will show you details such as address, property information, zip code and phone number.

Tools You Can Use on Zabasearch

From here you can leave a message for a person with the same name, or you can check messages that have been left publically. This is ideal if you want to know if anybody has been looking for you!If you only have a phone number to work with, type the number into the phone number box. When you use this method, you can retrieve basic information such as general location, but if you want to find out further details such as name and address, you need to pay either for a single phone number or a pack of five.

Use Zabasearch for Background Checks

It's also possible to run a background check using Zabasearch, with the added gaurantee that you will not be charged if your search returns no results. If you want to check and see if anyone has left any messages for you, just click the 'Check Messages to You' option and fill in your own name. There could be something waiting for you -- you never know unless you try.

For the curious of mind, you can also check the most searched names of that particular day.

Check If You're Being Searched Using Zabasearch

Finally, if you want to know if you are bing searched, you can sign up to Zabasphere and receive an email everytime your name is entered into the search engine. Some people may be worried about their information being tracked against their will, however Zabasearch hosts no information of its own; instead it sources all of its data from freely accessible information that is found in the public domain. That said, if you'd prefer to block your information from entering the sphere, visit zabasearch.com/block_records for details on how to get started.
