PeekYou is a people search engine that indexes people and their links on the web. Founded in April 2006 by Michael Hussey (the founder of RateMyTeachers and RateMyProfessors.com), PeekYou claims to have indexed over 250 million people,[2] mostly in the US and Canada. The search results are built from publicly available URLs, including Facebook, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, Google+, blogs, homepages, business pages and news sources.

PeekYou opened its search engine in stealth mode in July 2006.[3] The website is one of the Top 1000 US websites, according to Quantcast.[4]
