Independently ranked, World-Leading Online People Search Engine Brings Fun, Free Searching to the U.S.
New York (November 13, 2008) — The world’s most popular people search engine, yasni, is launching the most intuitive, fun and free people search website, www.yasni.com, in the U.S. Delivering almost 24 million page views per month, the European version of yasni is currently ranked as the world’s #1 people-search engine by independent Web traffic profilers, www.quantcast.com and www.alexa.com. After identifying unique people search behaviors and applications in the U.S. market, yasni.com brings the power of search to the people, literally, empowering users to search public information for more than one billion people, provided information exists on the Web. In return, yasni provides detailed findings including Web links, images, social networking profiles, blogs, news and videos.
yasni.com helps people find each other while learning about their interests and behaviors. yasni users (or “yasnians”) can search for long-lost relatives and high school sweethearts, check out neighbors, employers and job applicants, keep tabs on their kids, and discover and control their own online reputations. yasni.com also offers various communications features that let free registered users stay connected.
“We run an extensive global people search resource, and have gathered a lot of public data about what people look for and how they act on that information,” said yasni founder and CEO, Steffen Ruehl. “After analyzing the options in the U.S., we found that what’s missing is an easy, fun and free way to find out about people’s interests and online behaviors. yasni.com is optimized to deliver the power of people search to all U.S. citizens, and we’ve made it easy and fun for ‘yasnians’ to stay connected, while embracing and improving their online reputations.”
www.yasni.com also offers users new and stand-alone features that enhance their online experience, such as the VIP Rank, which ranks each registered user based on the amount of search data available on them. In addition, yasni enables users to place free “missing person”ads to find those who could not be located on the Internet. yasni was also the first people search engine to perfect the use of intelligent tag clouds for refined search results and improved usability.
“It’s cliche to say we want to be the Google of people search,” said Ruehl. “yasni is the people’s people search. We simply want to bring the yasni experience to the millions of Web users in the U.S., just as we’ve done successfully in other parts of the world.”
