Want to find out who is looking for you online? Web-based companies such as MyLife and Who Is Searching for Me will tell you if anybody is searching for you online, but it's going to cost you. The companies track search results from search engines like Google and Bing, as well as social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace. To see the results, you must sign up for a membership with the website using a valid credit card.

Go to a website that offers personal reverse search result services such as MyLife, Socialprofile, SeeWhoSearched, Who is Searching for Me or People 411 Search.

Enter your first and last name. Some websites, such as MyLife and SeeWhoSearched, require you to enter your age and Postcode. Socialprofile requires you to enter the city in which you currently reside.

Hit the "Enter" key. You will not see the full search results, only a teaser. You must pay for a membership to access all the search results.

Click on the button asking you to sign up for a membership. This button may be labelled "Sign up now", "Become a member" or something similar.

Choose a plan and fill out the required information, including name, address, age and e-mail address.

Enter your credit card number, including the security code found on the back of your card.

Complete the registration to see if anybody is searching for you the Internet.
