So you’ve probably seen the membership sites for finding old lost friends online. The problem is that you’ll only find old friends if they happen to join the same site, and there are several of them.
Here is a different approach. The Lost Friend Message Pages.
People love to google themselves, and to see what they find. They are searching for pages that have their name.
A site with a lot of links to it, that has a page titled with their name is likely to come up very high in the search engines. If you have a small blog with just a few in links, a page mentioning your friend isn’t likely to be in the top 10 (or maybe even the top 100) pages for that name. If you’ve got a more “powerful” site, you can give it a try.
Or, we just might be able to get a simple message to your friend, with it’s on page, in this new “Find Old Friends” section of InnocentEnglish.com. I may automate the process soon, but for now, just send a short sentence or up to a paragraph, with your friend’s name, and any other info you want to include, so that if there are several people with that name, they will know if it’s them or not (the city and state, how you know them, etc.) And then include your email address (to keep spam engines away, I suggest breaking up the email address with parenthesis. Like this: findfriends (at) InnocentEnglish.com.
So give it a try if you like. They’ll be pleased and surprised to see your message waiting for them when they are googling themselves :)

You’re right. Someone said I should google my name just to see what came up and I found this page! It’s been a year since Jerry was looking for me, but I’m online and would love to talk to her again. I think about her a lot since I moved back to America. When we were both in Christchurch Women’s Hospital, it was a scary and horrible time. I miss Jerry and her family. Our daughters even have the same name. If you see this Jerry, please email me at : firstname.lastname@example.org
