28. IdeaSpark*: More Efficient Google Search for People November 9, 2006

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Service, Website.


I am sure each one of us has Googled a person. The following IdeaSpark* may not be a completely original idea, but I haven’t come across it anywhere, yet.

Let’s say you want to Google a doctor you met at a cocktail party. His business card says William Penn Riles, MD. With the new SparkBugged Google, you type in all possible interations in each search field. For example, for the first name, you enter William, Bill, and Billy. You then add the middle name, then the last name, and finally, MD and M.D. Google will then search for all the combinations possible (including hits without the middle name, or with just the middle initial, etc.). This way you can be sure you know everything on Google about this guy prior to allowing him to perform brain surgery on you.
